I walked around my neighborhood basking in the sun (yes, with my coat still on), went to Physique 57 to work out, met my friend Natalie at the Chelsea Market (I of course tasted the Fat Whitch brownie samples on my way in), picked up my friend’s dog from Pup Culture…but it’s actually Easter Sunday and all I could think about all day was FOOD. I was anxious to get in the kitchen and cook up a flavorful feast for the holiday. The unfortunate thing was that I had to wait for dinner, so I literally spent my day wasting time trying to get my mind off of the juicy lamb chops that were marinating in my refrigerator. I had gone to my local butcher the day before, who had cut and prepared a rack of lamb for me, and stopped by the bodegas and shops in my hood for the rest of the fresh ingredients for my meal: Mouthwatering herb and garlic grilled lamb chops with roasted brussels sprouts and red potatoes. Homemade chocolate and raspberry sorbet eggs from Cones with crumbled freshly baked biscotti on top from Rocco’s. Delightful.
I used a Giada De Laurentiis recipe for the marinade on my lamb chops. I can always count on Giada!

In the mean time, heat a grill pan over high heat, add the lamb chops and sear for about 2 minutes. Flip the chops over and cook for another 3 minutes for medium-rare.
