  1. Powzawee! This is a *WONDERFUL* use of a lamb chop. I would give it 10 *stars* if I could. So easy, yet so tasty I had the whole family and then some wondering what all the *hoopla* was about. Truly, sincerely flower7 you have a great recipe going. I had just made some fresh blackberry jam, so used this along with some (just a tad bit) of balsamic vinegar mixture and (the only change cause' it is so hot) I grilled these outside on the grill. Perfect, rare and totally delicious. Would not even think of doing this differently ~ because this is so good. Please try this bake it, fry it, but put the sauce on, you will love it! Thanks so much! Made for *SSC Pet Parade* July 2008.


I have a degree in archaeology from a small Ohio college and I work for the Ohio History Connection. My passions are art, music, books, food, history, and cats/animal welfare. I also love photography. I have a 1,000 (plus) piece collection of vintage flower pins from the 1960's, hence the username ha. I also have small collections of vintage butterfly pins, vintage tablecloths, and vintage glass Christmas ornaments. (Can you tell I love vintage?) I took a trip to the Netherlands in March 2006 and fell in love! I doubt it will happen but if I ever have the opportunity I would love to live there.
