Happy New Year and a Giveaway!

Happy New Year! I hope you all have some great resolutions for the new year. One of them should be to try this recipe for Rib Roast. I'm not really a beef person, and I loved this recipe. My only complaint is that we didn't make more! Here is what you do, and it sounds weird, but I promise this works like a charm.

1 - Buy a 5 lb. standing rib roast. Ours was 5.5 lbs. Let it sit out on the counter for about one hour.

2 - Rub some olive oil on it, and then rub some seasoning like Lowry's, or I used a seasoning called Johnny's. Don't be afraid to use a good amount.

3 - Put it on a rack in a roasting pan, and put it in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Then, turn the oven off. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR AT ALL. Let it sit in the oven for 3, yes three!, hours. And did I mention - do not open the oven door. Tape it if you have to.

4 - After 3 hours, turn the oven on to 350 and cook for 35-40 minutes or until the beef is about 145 degrees. Before the last cooking time, I stuck a meat thermometer in and cooked until 145. It was perfect! It's important to let the roast sit out for about 15-20 minutes before carving to let the juices settle.

Yum! Ok, now for the giveaway. I received some coupons for free cereal from General Mills and MyBlogSpark. I have one coupon for a free box of General Mills cereal, up to 6.00, to give away. So here's what you do: leave me a comment about a fun holiday tradition in your family. Any holiday, any tradition. I will pick a random winner on Monday at 5pm and will post the winner Tuesday morning. Given the fact that no one reads this blog but me - I may get myself another box of free cereal! WooHOO! :)


  1. LOL, I love your blog and read it often! :D

    A family tradition for Jeremy and I is we try and give one service to each other every Christmas. We try and give a piece of ourselves on the holiday. Enjoy!

  2. Our family gets together for the holidays and we play games all day. Have a great dinner and a great time.

  3. I like to celebrate by baking cookies on Christmas Eve (leaving some for Santa too of course!) and also we make tamales for my hubby's Central American heritage and toutiere pie for my Franco American heritage! Wishing you a great New Year!
