Here we are on the tenth day of the 12 Recipes of Christmas and it goes without saying that we always leap to our favorite recipe when we have not given a thought of what to have for dinner… and with all the Holiday wrapping, festivities, wonderful parties… well dinner takes second place on our priority list. Luckily for me I have a well stocked freezer by my favorite person, Pete at Personal Gourmet Foods. Grabbing a rack of lamb meant dinner would be ready in a flash, everyone will be happy and I will be spending more time enjoying my family.
I am re-sharing our go to recipe that graces our plates more often than we want to admit.
Are you ready for this? Here it goes…
