Refrigerate for one or more hours. Prep the vegetables and pat dry with a towel. Toss vegetables with the Pasolivo Herbs de Provence and Pasolivo Kosher Flake Sea Salt. Toss with remaining 3 Tbsp of Pasolivo Lime Olive Oil. Put vegetables in bottom of 6-quart slow cooker. Place beef mixture on top of vegetables. Pour beef stock over mixture. Cook on high 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours until meat is tender. Salt to taste and serve.
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a medium bowl, mix the Original Nut Crumbs, Pasolivo Spicy
Italian Blend, and Pasolivo Roasted Garlic Salt. Stir in the Pasolivo
Citrus Olive Oil, then stir in the egg. When completely mixed, stir in
the turkey. Make meatballs using 2 Tbsp of the mixture. Line

Oil. Place the meatballs on the baking sheet and bake for about 15-20
Berry Balsamic Swirled Skillet Cookie
• 1/2 cup boysenberry or blackberry seedless jam
• 2 Tbsp Pasolivo Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar
• 1/2 stick of salted butter, softened
• 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
• 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 1/2 tsp Pasolivo Kosher Flake Sea Salt
• 1/2 all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
• 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Place a rack in the lowest spot of the oven, set to 375°F.
Add jam and Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool in the fridge.
Meanwhile, combine both sugars and softened butter in a large mixing bowl. Stir until smoothed into a paste and no lumps of sugar or butter remain. Add in egg, vanilla and salt, mix until egg is fully incorporated, about a minute. Fold in the flour, rolled oats and baking soda until just combined, then stir in the walnuts and white chocolate chips.
Use wet hands to press the dough into a 10” cast-iron skillet. Drizzle half of the balsamic mixture over the dough, swirl with a spoon. Do not over-mix; the top does not have to be perfectly smooth.
Place the cast-iron on the lowest rack in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are dark brown and the middle is puffed and golden. The cookie will continue to bake after it’s taken out of the oven; it’s okay if the dough is a little bit underbaked in the middle.
Let the skillet cookie cool for forty minutes. To serve, top a slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and an extra drizzle of the balsamic and jam reduction.
