Garlic Prime Rib
Absolutely fantastic. A huge hit that everyone loved. Made a 5.2lb bone-in prine rib. Generously served 4 people. Only changes I did: 1 teaspoon o fresh thyme and 1 teaspoon of dried. Also made a jus with the fond and bits in the roasting pan while meat was resting. Jus was made with 1 teaspoon of flour and 1 cup of red wine, brought to simmer and reduced. Served with Yorkshire pudding, barbecued asparagus and salad. Delish! Extra notes: initial searing stage crucial to getting a nice crispy- ish exterior. Equation for initial bake at 500: 5 mins per pound exactly. This worked out perfectly. Also, covered meat in aluminium while resting so as not to allow to cool. This recipe is an absolute keeper and i will be making it again for sure!

Grilled Sea Bass
Really loved the combination of spices and the simplicity of this recipe. So easy and flavourful. Unfortunately, slightly overlooked the fish, which is why I am giving it 4 stars. I know had it cooked a little less, fish would have kept more moisture. Advice: keep your eyes on the fish. Cooks fast! I used a cast iron skillet on medium, and it got that gorgeous crispy brown colour ( and amazing flavouring). 2 minutes less each side would have been perfect. Will certainly try again soon. Delicious!

Mushroom Risotto
Made this for romantic Valentine's dinner. It was my first time making risotto and it was absolutely superb. Used skim milk and 5%, instead of the higher fat options above. Turned out perfect! My boyfriend loved it. Keeping this in my arsenal as a sure ire showstopper when I entertain. Try it, you will not regret it. I used some oyster mushrooms along with plain white sliced ones I had in the fridge. I now understand that with risotto, you really have to " keep your eye on it and keep stirring", for the duration of cooking. Coupled it with halibut steaks and sautéed kale and grilled peppers. Thank you for this delicious recipe.
