BGE Sweet and Spicy Ribs
  • Time: 3 hours

BGE Sweet and Spicy Ribs

We just love our Big Green Egg and since my husband has made Pulled Pork 3 weekends in a row I decided to change it up for Labor Day weekend and make some ribs!

Here is recipe for the rub! (this recipe is for 2 racks of ribs)

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine together...  Rub the ribs, wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Cindy's Note:  I made this for 4 of us so I cut the ribs in half to make everyone an individual serving. You can keep it whole or cut it half.  It was also easier for the EGG.  I just love my Simply Organics Spices!

 

 

 

Easy Sauté Vegetable Salad with Tuna and Italian Dressing

Easy Sauté Vegetable Salad with Tuna and Italian Dressing

I am really working on staying on track for 2016.  I joined a new gym down here in Florida and it's called Hard Exercise Works (HEW) and I really love it.  It's very similar to my CrossFit workouts and the energy is just amazing.  Another great think about my new gym is it's next to a Fresh Market which I just love and so many other healthy markets.

While walking through the market starting from the produce everything looks fresh, bright and I wanted one of everything.  I started with the fresh greens which was a combination of baby spinach, baby kale and mixed greens, then I saw the fresh mushrooms, asparagus and cherry tomatoes.  I walked over to the prepared section and their tuna looked perfect.  Of course, I was offered a sample and immedialty asked for 1 pound of tuna.  You can make your own but I felt great with the short cut!

You can sauté up any vegetables such as zucchini, red peppers or even eggplant would be a great addition.  I will be grabbing those next stop!  I did make my own dressing so easy and perfect.  I will be using the leftover dressing for a marinade during the week!

Garlic Steamed Whole Artichokes

Our family loves artichokes.  It all started with my Nana. Every Easter and Christmas Eve she would be steaming a big pot of artichokes.  We would all be so excited to be sitting around the table eating them!  Of course, the heart is the best part but getting to it pedal by pedal it very exciting too.  My mother still makes artichokes and so do I.  

I enjoy them often.  I make 2 for myself - One for now and another for tomorrow (or tonight).  

You need to add tons of garlic in the leaves and drizzle with lots of EVOO.  

Enjoy xo

 

Herb Grilled Chicken

  • Complexity: easy

Herb Grilled Chicken

I have to start off this recipe by saying OMG.  I had a sisters weekend to celebrate Michelle's 50th and our friends Dennis and Lisa offered to take us out on their boat for the day.  I made some amazing Herb Marinade from my garden and let the chicken sit for about 5 hours in the refrigerator.  

Glenn grilled them then I thinly sliced and made a large sandwich.  I cut them up into individual portions and everyone just loved them!  Hubby even ate the remaining sandwiches for lunch the next day!

Now to keep the chicken paleo you can enjoy grilled or over a salad or grill up vegetables (zucchini, eggplant and red onion).  That is what my sisters and I did with the left over chicken then I drizzled EVOO and balsamic.  Super delicious.

Go ahead and grill this today!

Here is the recipe to my Herbs and Garlic Marinade!

Spicy "Riced" Sweetheart Egg Bites

I have been over indulging in vegetables and just love it.  I had 1 head of both cauliflower and broccoli and wanted to use them up.  I decided to rice both of them in my food processor and create 2 recipes.  One is for these little spicy sweetheart bites for Valentine's Day and the other I am going to use in my stuffed cabbage. The recipe will be similar to this recipe except I am using ground ground turkey and the riced cauliflower/broccoli and not the zucchini.

I made these in mini-muffin tins.  I sprayed with coconut oil spray I found at Trader Joes

Enjoy xo

Spinach Artichoke Rolls

This recipe was inspired by my love for artichokes! As I was creating this cookbook, these rolls just came together and was not on the original recipe list! I was very surprised that it came together so well and the first bite was breath taking. Go ahead and make these but beware it is hard to stop eating them!

Sprouted Rice Chicken Soup

I know it's about 85 degrees F and still summer but Chicken Soup sounds perfect today.  I have used Accents Sprouted Rice Trio before and decided it would be perfect in my soup.

Cindy's Note:  I don't like a lot of carrots in my soup so I only added one.  Feel free to add as many as you like as well as celery and onion.  Enjoy..  This soup is so good. Especially because I made my own soup broth.

 

Steak Tartare topped with Rocket
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Steak Tartare topped with Rocket

Every restaurant we have been to in Tuscany has their own version of a steak tartar topped with rocket salad. Rocket is known as arugula. A nutritious green leafy vegetable and very popular in the Mediterranean. I love using Rocket in salads or even cooking with them. I love when they are young and have just that slight peppery taste

*CHEFS NOTE* If you have difficult slicing the beef very thin, then place wrapped in the freezer for about 15 minutes then slice. If will be much easier to work with to create the perfect thin slices.
