MELT IN YOUR MOUTH PRIME RIB ROAST

MELT IN YOUR MOUTH PRIME RIB ROAST | #MELTINYOURMOUTH #PRIME #RIB #ROAST #Primeribroastrecipe #Standingribroast #Meatdishes #Meatrecipes #Ribsrecipeoven #Primeribrecipeoven #Meatdishes #Meatrecipes #Beefdishes #Beefrecipes #Cookingrecipes #Steakrecipes



Ingredients

  • Prime Rib
  • 1 2-6 Bone Prime Rib Roast (Boned and Tied)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 clove garlic (Sliced or Minced)
  • Prime Rib Rub
  • 1 tbsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Dried Rosemary
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tbsp Kosher Salt


Instructions

  1. Remove the prime rib from the refrigerator 4 hours before cooking.
  2. minutes before cooking, bone and tie the meat (Optional)
  3. Cut 1/2" slits on the top of the roast and insert minced or sliced garlic.
  4. Rub the outside of the roast with high quality olive oil.
  5. Combine the rosemary, thyme, kosher salt, black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder and spread evenly over the roast.
  6. Let rest while the oven pre-heats to 500 degree F (260 degree C).
  7. Transfer the roast to a roasting pan, bone side down.
  8. Insert the thermometer into the center of the roast and place in the oven (2nd rack from the bottom).
  9. Calculate your initial cooking time by allowing 5 minutes per pound of meat (a 9 lb roast would cook for 45 minutes while a 6 lb roast would cook for 30).
  10. This will provide a nice crunch on the exterior. The seasoning rub will get charred but that's what creates the deeply savory crust.
  11. After your calculated cooking time is up, turn the oven off but DON'T OPEN THE OVEN DOOR.
  12. After 2 hours the center of your roast will be 135 degrees F, which is medium-rare.
  13. If you prefer medium just keep it in the oven until it reaches 150 degrees F.
  14. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes.

Zucchini Chocolate Brownies

Zucchini Chocolate Brownies (100% whole grain, gluten-free, dairy-free options) | #Dessertrecipes #Cookingrecipes #Deliciousdesserts #Healthyrecipes #Healthysnacks #Healthydesserts #Dairyfreerecipes #Dairyproducts #Dairyfreereplacements #Dessertrecipes #Healthydesserts #Healthysweets


Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs (50 grams each, out of shell)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or unrefined sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup (125 grams) whole wheat flour or whole spelt flour or all-purpose flour or Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour for the gluten-free version
  • 1/2 cup (45 grams) Dutch-process cocoa powder (using regular cocoa powder may result in cakey brownies)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (about 300 – 320 grams) peeled and grated zucchini
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips + 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips to sprinkle on top (for dairy-free, use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C) and line an 8"x8" pan with parchment paper or spray with baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, vanilla, coconut sugar, and apple sauce and let this sit for 5 minutes to let the coconut sugar dissolve.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder (sifted if lumpy!), baking soda and salt. Make sure there are no clumps before going on to the next step.
  4. Add the dry mix to the wet, gently stir until combined. Be sure not to over mix!
  5. Then fold in the zucchini and 1 cup chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan and even the surface with a spatula.
  7. Sprinkle 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips on top.
  8. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes (14 minutes for the half batch) or until a toothpick inserted in the middle doesn't come out gooey. It might still be sticky - just not have raw batter on it.
  9. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days at room temperature or up to one week in the refrigerator. I recommend storing them in the refrigerator right from the beginning due to their high moisture content.

Easy 30-Minute Chicken Enchilada Chili

Easy 30-Minute Chicken Enchilada Chili | #Greenchilichickenenchiladascasserole #Greenchilechickenenchiladas #Chickenenchiladacasseroleeasy #Mexicanfoodrecipes #Chickenenchiladacasserolegreen #Chickentortillacasserole #Healthygyrorecipe #Chickenenchiladazucchiniboats #Groundturkeyrecipes #Turkeymeatballsgyros #Familydinnerideashealthy #Mediterraneandietrecipes

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, seasoned with salt and pepper (or use about 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, sprinkled with 1 teaspoon cumin)
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon ground cumin, divided
  • 1 large/extra-large sweet Vidalia onion, diced small
  • 3 to 5 garlic cloves, finely pressed or minced
  • one 15-ounce can red kidney beans (I used low-salt), drained and rinsed
  • one 15-ounce can black beans (I used no-salt added), drained and rinsed
  • 1 to 1.5 cups frozen corn (not necessary to thaw; or one 15-ounce can corn, drained and rinsed may be substituted)
  • one 14.5-ounce can petite diced fire-roasted tomatoes (regular petite diced tomatoes may be substituted)
  • one 10-ounce can red enchilada sauce (I used medium heat)
  • two 4-ounce cans fire-roasted diced green chiles (regular diced green chiles may be substituted; and/or reduce to 1 can for less spiciness)
  • about 2 cups water, chicken or vegetable broth, or as desired
  • 1 to 1.5 tablespoons chili powder (I used 1.5)
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika (regular paprika may be substituted)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, optional and to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons granulated sugar, optional and to taste
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice, optional and to taste
  • fresh cilantro, lime wedges, diced avocado, sour cream, green onions, shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips or crackers; all optional for garnishing

 Instructions

  1. To a large Dutch oven, add 2 tablespoons olive oil, chicken, evenly season with salt and pepper, 1 teaspoon cumin, and cook over medium-high heat until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from Dutch oven, and set on a cutting board to rest. Do not clean the pan or remove cooking juices.
  2. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, onions, and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, or until onions have softened, stir intermittently.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant; stir nearly constantly.
  4. Add the the kidney beans, black beans, corn, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, green chiles, water/broth, remaining 1 tablespoon cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, optional salt (there’s already quite a bit of salt in the other canned goods and I didn’t add any additional salt), pepper, and stir to combine. If you prefer thinner chili with more broth, you may wish to add an additional 1 to 2 cups water/broth.
  5. Bring to boil and allow chili to gently boil for about 5 to 10 minutes or until chili has reduced and thickened some.
  6. While chili is cooking, shred or cube the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add chicken to chili and stir to combine.
  7. Stir, taste, optionally add sugar to taste (I added 3 teaspoons because the sugar balances the acid from the tomatoes), optional lime juice (brightens up the flavor), and add salt, pepper, etc. if desired.
  8. Ladle into bowls and optionally garnish with your favorites. Chili will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days and in the freezer for up to 4 months. The flavors meld and marry and I think it tastes even better a day or two later.

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecan halves (about 3/4 cup chopped)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut (unsweetened, preferably!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup or raw honey
  • 4 cups blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Chop the pecans. Combine the oats, pecans, almond meal, coconut, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and maple syrup and stir until well mixed. GOOD LUCK NOT EATING THE WHOLE THING RIGHT HERE AND NOW.
  2. Grease a square baking dish (8×8 or 9×9) and arrange the blueberries in the bottom. Top with the oat mixture. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown and has firmed up slightly. If you want, you can top with additional flaked coconut and return to the oven for another 5 minutes just for some decorative toasted coconut on top.
