Chef’s tip: Keep the lamb marinated in a rosemary and garlic mixture for a few hours to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat. And anything lighter than medium rare should be avoided.  Spices and Seasons

Chef’s tip:  Take care if baking mini-cupcakes because they bake quickly and dry out easily.  As soon as there’s no ‘jiggle’ to their batter (about 13 minutes), remove immediately from heat. Suburban Sweets
