Romantic Valentine's Dinner

Recommended Posts

So, every year on Valentine's day, we struggle to figure out where to go and what to do. This year, we decided to stay home and have a romantic meal in.

 

I want to make an entire meal at home to suprise FI. I need some yummy, romantic recipes. Where are all the Marthas out there?

 

Share your recipes with me (if you will) to make vday special for us... Click the image to open in full size.

Do you like lamb? I know either you love it or you hate it, but for some reason I find rack of lamb to be insanely romantic as part of a meal, so just want to find out before I post my recipe!

I can't really answer that. I am not opposed to trying anything, I just can't say if I have ever eaten it before, let alone cooked it foshizzle.bmp

LOL It's super easy to cook, but not everyone likes the taste...here's the recipe anyway :)

 

Rack of Lamb

1 1 1/4- to 1 1/2-pound rack of lamb, trimmed

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp coriander seeds

1/2 tsp green peppercorns

2 large garlic cloves, chopped

1 tbsp grated orange peel

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

 

Preheat oven to 450°F. Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper. Enclose cumin, coriander, and peppercorns in small resealable plastic bag. Using mallet, coarsely crush seeds and peppercorns. Add garlic, orange peel, and oil to bag and mash to coarse paste. Smear paste over meat portion of lamb.

 

Place lamb, paste side up, in small baking pan. Roast lamb 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 400°F. Continue to roast until thermometer inserted into lamb registers 135°F for medium-rare, about 15 minutes longer. Cut lamb between bones into chops and serve.
