Chimichurri Rack of Lamb

I mentioned in my last post that I have started to take the easy way out when it comes to my cooking.  But taking the easy way out doesn’t have to mean bland and boring.  I never thought I was capable of making something as extravagant as rack of lamb at home.  I mean, that’s […]
