Chocolate Caramel Tart


        My daughter-in-law Kym, who is brainy as she is beautiful and the mother of the world’s best baby, had a suggestion.  At Mother’s Day, she wanted Chewing the Fat to feature something that could be made as a gift for Mom.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen because our resident baker was not in residence.  But we’ve decided to rectify the situation with this perfect gift for Father’s Day. It’s coming up this Sunday, June 21st and this is a great way to celebrate.

Simple Lamb Chops with two delicious sides: Stir-Fried Bok Choy with Ginger and Parmesan Smashed Potatoes



        One of the best buys at Costco are the loin lamb chops.  You get 10 of them for about $17.00.  The last time I looked at loin lamb chops at Fairway, they were over $17.00 a lb.  I’ve been wanting to write about them and kept searching for something amazing to do with them.   My usual preparation was just to douse them with lots of Lea and Perrin’s Worcestershire sauce, broil them quickly 6 minutes on one side, 4 on the other.   They’re always delicious but I was looking for something “different” to share with you.
