As we wait out the last couple months of winter, now is the time to enjoy one of the best things about cold weather: warm, cozy comfort food! These Lamb Rib Chops with Garlic and Rosemary look impressive, but are deceptively easy to make. We like them best with a side of seriously caramelized brussel sprouts and a glass of good red wine.
