Green bean Casserole

Green bean Casserole

Saw this Green Bean Casserole recipe on food network good eats and just had to make it, instead of the can of mushroom soup recipe. I am trying to stay away from the can goods and buy the fresh stuff. Not to say that this is a healthy dish, but it can be if you leave the half and half out and just use broth ;).

Appelflappen (Apple Beignets)

Appelflappen (Apple Beignets)

Confusion about apple fritter and apple turnover. Is it appelflappen or appel beignets? Depends who you ask, and it depends where you are at. If you have appetite for apple fritter or an apple turnover you should wait and see what you get from the bakery. Both contains apple but how is the apple packaged. In puff pastry and baked in the oven or batter fried? It seems impossible to put an end to this confusion. Because how do you get everyone involved so far as to use the same definitions for apple fritters and apple turnovers? As for me I’m still calling these appelflappen because that’s what they were called where I grew up, even though officialy they are called appel beignets 😉 Appelflappen (beignets) are next to the oliebol the most popular treat on New Years Eve. Ever Dutch family will have some oliebollen and or appelflappen.

Prime Rib Roast

Prime Rib Roast

Prime Rib Roast. The above Prime Rib Roast is a bit overdone in my opinion but never the less it was still juicy and tender. Next time cook it shorter.

Ingredients
  • Prim Rib Roast
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp celery seeds
 
Instructions
  1. Remove Prime Roast from refrigerator and allow the meat to come to room temperature, about 3 hours
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. Put the flour, pepper, salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and celery seed into a small bowl.
  4. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Unwrap the roast and place onto roasting pan; blot with paper towels.
  5. Coat the roast all over with the flour mixture. This roast was 3lbs and we cooked this one for 90 min, 30 min per lb. I personally like mine a bit more “raw” on the inside and will cook it for 20 min per lb the next time. So for a well done 3 lb rib roast 90 min on 425F, medium rare 60 min on 425F. When the roast has finished cooking, take it out of the oven, and cover with aluminum foil. Allow to rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes to 1 hour before slicing.
