Today we’re celebrating #FoodBloggerLove, which is the Valentine’s version of cookie swap. I was assigned a random blogger to get acquainted with and I’m so excited to introduce you to The PinterTest Kitchen. They try out popular Pinterest recipes so you don’t have to!
The PinterTest Kitchen is a Mother Daughter Daughter team – so fun! They all work or have worked at wineries so there is no shortage of wine-based recipes on their blog. They even have a roundup of cookie and wine pairings – um yes please!!!
It only took a few minutes of browsing to decide my tribute recipe would definitely include wine. I also wanted to make a Valentine’s dinner so I came up with Cherry Chutney Lamb Chops.
I get a pack of frenched rack of lamb from Trader Joe’s cut it into sections of two chops then season and pan sear. Super easy, and tricks your diners into thinking you spent all day cooking! After you sear the meat you’ll have all that fat and goodness in the pan. Leave it there! It will add more flavor to the sauce.
You’re definitely going to want to serve these lamb chops with marriage mashies and roasted brussels sprouts. Drink your extra wine with your meal, of course, and go ahead and open a second bottle as you so desire. Don’t forget dessert! Chocolate Sugar Cookies with Raspberry Wine Drizzle are the perfect little treat after this tender cherry chutney lamb. I made those chocolate cookies from The PinterTest Kitchen and must have eaten half the dough raw. Too good and perfectly chocolatey!
