Healthy Living Recipe: Keto Pizza

By DietDoctor.com

Pizza, meet keto… A simple take on how to get your pizza fix without the carbs. It’s everything you want — pepperoni, cheese and tomato-sauce deliciousness.

Total Time: 30 mins

Servings: 2

Nutrition: 8 grams of fat



Eggs- 4

Mozzarella or Parmesan Cheese, Shredded- 6 oz.


Tomato Paste- 3 tbsp

Dried Oregano- 1 tsp

Shredded Cheese- 5 oz

Pepperoni- 1.5 oz

Olives (optional)

For Serving

Leafy Greens- 2 oz

Olive Oil- 4 tbsp

Sea Salt & Ground Black Pepper- to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Start by making the crust. Crack eggs into a medium-sized bowl and add shredded cheese. Give it a good stir to combine.

3. Use a spatula to spread the cheese and egg batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can form two round circles or just make one large rectangular pizza. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the pizza crust turns golden. Remove and let cool for a minute or two.

4. Increase the oven temperature to 450°F (225°C).

5. Spread tomato paste on the crust and sprinkle oregano on top. Top with cheese and place the pepperoni and olives on top.

6. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the pizza has turned a golden brown color.

7. Serve with a fresh salad on the side.

  • Scallions- 4
  • Southwest Spice Blend- 2 tbsp
  • Basmati Rice- 1 cup
  • Chicken Stock Concentrate- 2



1  SLICE CHORIZO.    Wash and dry all produce. Slice chorizo into 1/4 inch thick rounds.


CRISP CHORIZO.     Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add chorizo and cook until crisp and some oil releases, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside on a paper-towel-lined plate, keeping as much oil in pan as possible.


3 COOK CHICKEN.       Return pan used for chorizo to medium heat. (TIP: If pan seems dry, add a drizzle of oil.) Season chicken all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until no longer pink in center, 5-6 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside.


4  PREP AND COOK VEGGIES.     While chicken cooks, core and seed bell pepper, then thinly slice. Halve, peel, and dice onion. Mince or grate garlic. Cut lemon into wedges. Trim, then thinly slice scallions, keeping greens and whites separate. Add a drizzle of oil to same pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, bell pepper, scallion whites, half the chorizo, and Southwest spice. Cook, tossing, until veggies are just softened, 3-4 minutes.


5  SIMMER RICE.    Add rice to pan and stir to coat. Stir in 1 cup water, stock concentrate, and a pinch of salt. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. TIP: If your pan doesn’t have a lid, cover it carefully with a piece of aluminum foil.


6  FINISH AND SERVE.      Fluff rice with a fork and season generously with salt and pepper. Place chicken on top of rice and sprinkle with remaining chorizo. Remove pan from heat and garnish with scallion greens and a few squeezes of lemon. Divide between plates and serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.

Pork Wonton Money Bags

Plus Grapefruit Mimosas with Ginger Syrup


By Hello Fresh


Cooking Time: 60 mins

Servings: 20 People

Nutrition: 200 Calories


Ingredients- WONTON:

  • Scallions- 4
  • Ginger- 4
  • Ground Pork- 20 oz
  • Panko Breadcrumbs- 1/2 cup
  • Sriracha- 6 tsp
  • Soy Sauce- 2 tbsp
  • Sesame Oil- 2 tbsp
  • Wonton Wrapppers- 2 packs
  • Lime- 2
  • Apricot Jam- 4 oz


Ingredients- COCKTAIL:

Servings: 10 People


  • Grapefruit- 4



1  PREP AND MAKE FILLING.     Wash and dry all produce. Trim, then mince scallions. Peel 1 thumb ginger, then grate until you have 1 TBSP (save remainder for cocktail). Place pork, panko, scallions, grated ginger, 1 tsp sriracha (we sent more), soy sauce, sesame oil, and ½ tsp kosher salt in a medium bowl. Season with pepper. Mix to combine. Lightly moisten a few paper towels. Fill a small bowl with water.


2  ASSEMBLE WONTONS.     Place 6 wonton wrappers on a dry surface. Place 1 tsp filling in center of each. Wet your fingers with water in bowl, then dab edges of wrappers to moisten. Fold in corners of wrappers around filling, then press together to seal. Set aside on a baking sheet and cover with moist paper towels. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling (you may have some wrappers left over).


3 FRY WONTONS.        Heat a 2-inch layer of oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Working in batches, carefully add wontons to oil and fry until golden brown and crisp, 3-4 minutes. (TIP: The oil should bubble when you add the wontons. If it doesn’t, heat it up more.) Remove wontons from oil with a slotted spoon and set aside on a paper-towel-lined tray.


4  MAKE SAUCE AND SERVE.       Halve lime. Stir together jam, remaining sriracha (to taste), 2 TBSP water, and a squeeze or two of lime in another small bowl. (TIP: Make sure to break up any larger lumps of jam.) Arrange wontons on a serving tray and serve with sauce for dipping.




1  MAKE SYRUP.     Thinly slice remaining 1 thumb ginger, then place in a small pot along with ½ cup water and ½ cup sugar. Give it a stir, then bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once sugar dissolves, remove from heat and set aside to cool, then strain, removing ginger slices. TIP: Save the ginger slices—ginger is a natural remedy for an upset stomach (and may come in handy tomorrow).


2  JUICE FRUIT AND SERVE.     Halve grapefruits, then cut a thin round from one half. Cut round into 6 wedges and make a small slit at pointed end of each. Squeeze juice from remaining grapefruit halves into a measuring cup. Fill 4 or 5 champagne flutes with ¼ cup juice and 2 TBSP syrup each. Top with sparkling wine and garnish rims with grapefruit wedges.

  • Large Pan
  • Small Bowl

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat broiler to high or oven to 500 degrees. Halve, peel, and thinly slice half the onion (use the other half as you like). Strip thyme leaves from stems; discard stems.

Melt 1 TBSP butter in a large pan over medium heat (use an ovenproof pan if you have one). Add thyme and onion. Cook until softened, 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in stock concentrate and 1½ cups water and bring to a simmer.

Once stock mixture is simmering, add ravioli to pan. Cover and cook 4 minutes. Uncover and increase heat to high. Continue cooking, spooning stock over ravioli, until ravioli are tender and stock has reduced, 5-6 minutes. Shake pan occasionally to keep ravioli from sticking.

Combine panko, Parmesan, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Remove pan from heat. Carefully stir sour cream and spinach into pan until thoroughly combined and spinach is wilted. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: Add a splash of water if sauce seems very thick.) If your pan is not ovenproof, transfer mixture to a baking dish at this point.

Sprinkle ravioli in pan (or dish) with crust mixture. Place under broiler and broil until golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Divide between plates

Prime Rib

By Simply Recipes

Cooking Time: 1-2 hours
Servings: 2-3 Per Rib
• One Standing Rib Roast
•3-7 Ribs
•Freshly ground black pepper

1 Salt roast and let sit at room temp:  Remove the beef roast from the refrigerator 3 hours before you start to cook it. Sprinkle it with salt all over and let it sit, loosely wrapped in the butcher paper. Roasts should be brought close to room temperature before they go into the oven, to ensure more even cooking.

2 Tie roast with kitchen string: If your butcher hasn’t already done so, cut the bones away from the roast and tie them back on to the roast with kitchen string. This will make it much easier to carve the roast, while still allowing you to stand the roast on the rib bones while cooking.

3 Preheat oven, season roast: Preheat your oven to 500°F (or the highest temp your oven reaches less than 500°F). Pat the roast dry with paper towels (pre-salting should have made the roast release some moisture), and sprinkle the roast all over with salt and pepper.

4 Place the roast fat side up and rib bones down in a roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer (oven proof) into the thickest part of the roast, making sure that the thermometer isn’t touching a bone.

5 Brown roast at high temperature: Brown the roast at a 500°F temperature in the oven for 15 minutes.

6 Lower oven temp to finish roasting: Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F. To figure out the total cooking time, allow about 11-12 minutes per pound for rare and 13-15 minutes per pound for medium rare.

The actual cooking time will depend on the shape of the roast, how chilled your roast still is when it goes into the oven, and your particular oven. A flatter roast will cook more quickly than a thicker one. A chilled roast will take more time than one closer to room temp.

There are so many variables involved that affect cooking time, this is why you should use a meat thermometer. A prime rib roast is too expensive to “wing it”. Error on the rare side, you can always put the roast back in the oven to cook it more if it is too rare for your taste.

Roast in oven until thermometer registers 115°F for rare or 120°-130°F for medium. (The internal temperature of the roast will continue to rise after you take the roast out of the oven.)

Check the temperature of the roast using a meat thermometer an hour before you expect the roast to be done. For example, with a 10 pound roast, you would expect 2 hours of total cooking time for rare (15 minutes at 500° and 1 3/4 hours at 325°). In this case, check after 1 hour 15 minutes of total cooking time, or 1 hour after you lowered the oven temp to 325°. (A benefit of using a remote thermometer is that you don’t have to keep checking the roast, you’ll be able to see exactly what the temperature is by looking at the thermometer outside of the oven.)

If the roast is cooking too quickly at this point, lower the oven temperature to 200°F.

7 Let the roast rest: Once the roast has reached the temperature you want, remove it from the oven and place it on a carving board. Cover it with foil and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving. The internal temperature of the roast will continue to rise while the roast is resting.

8 Cut away strings, remove bones, slice roast: Cut away the strings that were used to hold the roast to the rack of rib bones. Remove the bones (you can save them to make stock for onion soup if you want.)

Then, using a sharp carving knife, slice meat across the grain for serving, making the slices about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.

Winter Squash At Clark’s Nutrition

By Judith Dern

Acorn, buttercup, butternut, delicata, hubbard, spaghetti, turban—a bounty of colorful winter squash and pumpkins overflow grocery produce tables every fall. A fruit (really!) native to North America, and a member of the gourd family like melons and pumpkins, squash is super-easy to stir into hearty autumn soups.

Squash is super-easy to stir into hearty autumn soups

Add squash to your diet for good health

“Winter squashes, especially pumpkin, are one of the most nutritionally valuable foods known to man,” says Steven Pratt, MD, coauthor of SuperFoods. Loaded with good-for-you nutrients, the richly colored interior flesh is the first clue to squashes’ nutritional benefits, which include:

Large amounts of carotenoids, the deep orange-, yellow-, or red-colored plant compounds that help fight a variety of diseases, including heart disease, various cancers, and eye diseases

Vitamins C and E, plus potassium, magnesium, and folic acid

High in fiber

Fall For Delicious Squash Soups

By Judith H. Dern

Make an easy squash soup the star of your weeknight menu

For a quick and easy squash soup, use fresh, canned, or frozen squash, or canned 100% pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie mix, which includes sugar and spices) as the soup base.

To prepare squash: If using fresh squash peel a thin-skinned variety such as hubbard or butternut. Cut squash in half and use a large spoon to remove seeds and any fibers; cut squash into 2-inch chunks and set aside.

Two 1-pound (.45 kg) squash will serve four people.

If a squash is difficult to peel, or if you are using a different variety from the two above, use a small knife to poke a few holes in the squash; then bake at 350ºF (177ºC) for 40 minutes or microwave for 12 minutes before slicing.

To make savory curried squash soup: Using a heavy 5.5-quart pot, sauté 1/3 cup diced yellow onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil until translucent (about 5 minutes).

Add squash, 1 quart chicken or vegetable stock, and 2 cups water.

Cook covered over medium heat until squash is soft and blends into stock.

Add more stock to thin mixture, if desired. Add 1/2 tablespoon curry powder (or to taste), salt and pepper to taste, and 1 cup half-and-half; stir to blend. Serve hot, but do not let soup boil after adding half-and-half.
