Holiday Bouquets Holiday Centerpieces

Timber Pear Centerpiece Create a cozy, yet luxurious centerpiece by alternating Timber Pear Candles and Bartlett pears over a bed of foliage. Use a long rectangular dish to set up your centerpiece, or a trimmed piece of lumber as the base. This will enhance a rustic autumn feeling and look amazing as the runner on your dining table.

Holiday Poinsettia

Modernize your menorah by wrapping 8 small square boxes in metallic silver paper and 1 rectangular box in navy paper. Use a navy blue ribbon around the center of each silver package and vise versa. After placing the rectangular gift box in the center, evenly distribute the silver boxes to each side. Place a small votive candle on top of each box.

Modern Menorah


prime rib roast

Beef Rib Roast, bone-in roast with 3 bones (approximately 7 pounds)

2 garlic cloves

3 tsp freshly ground sea salt

1 tbsp freshly ground Spice Hunter black pepper

Butcher twine



Preheat oven to 475°F. Stud the roast with the garlic by pushing the cloves into the natural seams of the beef. Tie the roast in between the bones. Season liberally with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set the roast in a roasting pan and place in the hot oven for fifteen minutes to sear the outside. Lower oven to 275°F and continue roasting until the beef reaches the desired internal temperature (Rare: 120°F, Medium: 130°F). Remember that the roast will continue to cook and the temperature can rise, up to 10° during the resting period. You can baste the roast after the first forty-five minutes if you wish. Remove the roast from the oven and tent loosely with foil. Allow the roast to rest at least thirty minutes before carving.

TIP: When serving a prime rib roast, count on a minimum of 1 lb per person with bone-in and 3/4 lb if boneless. In other words, a 12 lb bone-in roast is perfect for 10 – 12 people.

Stonewall Kitchen Popover Mix Stonewall Popover Mix helps you create popovers right in your own kitchen that will melt in your mouth. Make savory varieties by adding cheese, bacon or herbs. Also, try with chocolate or cinnamon for a great dessert!

a pairing of perfection Try using these pairings for a touch of depth that only herbs can provide. Thicker, woodier herbs, like thyme, sage and rosemary can be very pungent and should be finely chopped and used sparingly or added whole and removed before serving. To substitute dried herbs for fresh, the general rule is 1 tbsp. fresh chopped =1 tsp. crumbled dry or 1/4 tsp. ground dry.

roasted salmon

with kale & herb crust

3 lbs center cut salmon fillet, skinned, cut into six equal portions

1/4 cup finely chopped kale

2 tbsp lemon zest

1 tbsp chopped basil

Imported Dijon mustard

Freshly squeezed orange juice

1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

Salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 500°F. Combine chopped kale, lemon zest, chopped basil, chopped parsley, salt and pepper to form a colorful topping. Heat a cast iron (or other heavy, stove-top to oven skillet) until smoking. It should be large enough to hold the fish in a single layer without touching. Dry salmon fillet with paper towels and turn skin side up. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and pat firmly so it adheres. Do this just before adding to skillet. Turn over and spread with mustard. Place in the hot skillet skin side down and cook just until it has browned lightly and no longer sticks to the skillet. Immediately place in the center of the oven and cook for about five minutes, or until the flesh is opaque. Place on a warm serving plate, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle with orange juice, and top with crunchy kale and herb topping.



Lemon Sole

TIP: Kale’s nutrient richness stands out in three particular areas: antioxidants, antiinflammatory properties, and its cancer fighting nutrients. A great way to incorporate veggies into your diet (especially for those picky eaters) is by sprinkling on your meals!

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake whole ham according to directions. About 45 minutes before the ham is done, remove it from the oven. Remove the drippings from the pan. Score the fat diagonally using a sharp knife, about 1/2” deep. In a separate saucepan, stir together the mango juice, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, honey, ham drippings and orange peel to make a glaze. Simmer for 30 minutes. Pour 1/3 of the glaze over the ham. Return glazed ham back to oven. Bake for another 30-40 minutes, basting the ham every 10 minutes with the remaining glaze.
