I first started cooking in college and have continued to do so ever since. Grilling is what I like best, but I bake this rack of lamb in the oven for the best results.—Bob Paffenroth, Brookfield, Wisconsin
"This recipe is so easy and quick to prepare," notes Lorene Whittingham of Denver, Colorado. "We have lamb often on Saturday nights for dinner along with double-baked potatoes, tossed salad and a vegetable."
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.

I've been making rack of lamb for years. My grandma gave me this recipe because she knew how much I love figs. And the toasted walnuts sprinkled on top give it just the right touch. —Sylvia Castanon, Long Beach, California
