While the lamb chops from Beth Tomlinson of Morgantown, West Virginia do make for an upscale meal, they are really fast and easy. “I tend to make them for special occasions, although they are quick enough for a nice weeknight dinner,” Beth explains. The chops are perfectly seasoned with rosemary and thyme and have a fabulous presentation sure to impress guests.
A spin on a classic meat loaf, I love this because I can sneak spinach in on my meat-and-potatoes family. Serve it with Greek-style potatoes or a Greek salad. I also get to make a whole other meal the next night with the leftovers—gyros. —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
"This is without a doubt the yummiest stew I've ever tasted," informs Lorna Irving of Holberg, British Columbia. "My mom often made it for special occasions when I was growing up. It's been popular with our family for the past 40 years. You can make it ahead and reheat before serving."
My mom taught me to cook, and I love creating new recipes. I developed this casserole on a cold and snowy afternoon many years ago. Tangy lemon and herbs are complemented by the subtle sweetness of cinnamon. —Carol Stevens, Basye, Virginia
"This nicely seasoned lamb tastes marvelous whether sauteed on the stovetop or grilled on a hibachi," says Marion Lowery of Medford, Oregon. "For a special meal, the chops are wonderful with parsley rice, fruit cups, spinach salad and lemon tarts for dessert."
We've raised sheep for years, so lamb has been a staple entree in our house as well as a favorite to serve when company comes. We do our own butchering and can cut the meat any way, but we've found the rack yields a perfect amount of meat for just the two of us.

A lemon-olive oil marinade gives these tasty kabobs a nice tang. They’re great for summer parties. In bad weather and during the winter, we cook them in a 400-degree oven for 25 to 40 minutes. —Weda Mosellie, Phillipsburg, New Jersey
These lean little lamb chops from Jill Heatwole of Pittsville, Maryland are packed with the flavors of rosemary, ginger and mustard. Marinating makes them so tender. They're something special for spring.
This colorful kabob wouldn't be the same without its delicious herb marinade and tender-crisp vegetables. Together, they add delicious flavor and texture to the lamb pieces. This recipe was submitted by Janet Dingler from Cedartown, Georgia.
