My little guy cooking at camp! Future chef possibly?

We have such wonderful memories of Camp Shadow Pines in Heber AZ, cooking camp food was just part of the fun!  SNOW SNOW SNOW  Good times with friends and family!

Coffee Love AND looks like a kitty had to get in on the shot!

I love Caffino, its a small stand alone coffee shop in Half Moon Bay, I have never even been to the Starbucks here, Caffino is so YUMMY! 

Red Wine, Rosemary and Olive Oil Marinated Rack of Lamb

I have made this dish several times and all I can say is its AMAZING! 


4 Fresh Rosemary sprigs
2 C. Red Wine
Chopped Garlic to taste (we like a lot)
4 T. Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the above, pour over lamb, cover and marinate 2 hrs. minimum, all day is preferable.

Preheat oven to 375

The most important part is making sure you sear in all the juices from the lamb, use a heavy non stick pan, on high eat cook lamb aprox. 4 min. each side and with a pair of tongs sear each end.  Place seared rack of lamb in shallow baking dish and cook uncovered for 30-45 minutes,  this is a main course that will blow your family/guests away!  I serve it with a spinach salad, mashed potatoes and steamed carrots...YUMMY
