Herb Crusted Lamb Dinner

Today we went to La District shopping for food supplies. It is down town in the Brookfield mall. La District is an open-style French market with high quality ingredients. It has cheeses, meats, fresh produce and many other things. I planned to make Seared Herb Lamb Chops and Wilted Garlic Spinach and pasta. This place had everything we needed and it was super fun to shop there.



Cheese at La District

The dinner turned out to super well. We had some great cheeses with truffle honey and rosemary crackers. The lamb were a perfect medium, and the spinach was nice and soft. However the trick to a good sear is to use high quality butter on medium heat so that the lamb has time to form a crust but also cook all the way through.


Tip: hot oil and water are not friends! If combined step back right away because the oil will start to spatter every where.

Dinner Party Snacks

Dinner party snacks are always a big deal people usually wonder, “What should i make? Will it be good? Will it be enough?” The trick to dinner party snacks are the three E’s easy, exciting and essence. The snacks should always be easy so that you can make more quickly. Like this warm brie and toasted walnuts below. They take 10 minutes to make.


They should always be exciting and different, it will make the party seem more fun. Like the gruyere cheese puffs my aunt thought me to make.


And the food should have essence (flavor) to make people want more. Like these fun bite size tacos – super easy and DELICIOUS!
