Valentines lamb lollipops
Who’s up for some lamb this Valentines weekend??!! Its February, its cold (really cold!), and Valentines is just around the corner. Whether your head-over-heels in love or just enjoying the single life, this amazing feast has got to be one of the best ways to have a lovely, cosy night in.
So draw the curtains, get those candles lit, snuggle up under a blanket or in your fave onesie, get a film on – you know the type – usually starring Julia Roberts or Meg Ryan, and get this lamb lollipop platter laid out on the table!
For this recipe I bought one lamb rack (serves 2) and asked for it to be French trimmed. This basically means that the butcher will remove the meat and fat to reveal the rib bones. These bones make the perfect stick to our lamb lollipops 🙂

Crisps and dips
Along with the juicy, pink lamb lollipops and thick-cut homemade sweet potato crisps theres also a scrummy cashew nut mint dip; a creamy, citrusy and refreshing addition to the meaty chunks of lamb. Sprinkle a bit of chilli powder on the top of this dip to give an extra fiery punch.
Super quick lamb
Out to impress or just wanting a delicious meal for one – this recipe is well worth it. Its so quick and easy that it won’t even disrupt your day – and you might just be able to get this made after a day at work.
And what about dessert?? have a look at my Nutella Tigella, or how about some mini squares of chocolate brownie?? Chocolate not your thing? – have a try of my raspberry and lemon muffins or an indulgent sticky apple treacle tart.
Sending you lots of love and hugs this Valentines!! xxx
