Mmm...is for Mommy: Easy Barbecued Ribs. I’ve never cooked ribs before.

Mmm...is for Mommy: Easy Barbecued Ribs

It’s something I’ve left to the pros, like my favourite, favourite, favourite BBQ joint, Boneheads BBQ. When we were out shopping Thursday night though, there was a pretty good deal on some small packs of pork back ribs, so I decided to give it a go. Friday morning, I remembered that there was a barbecue rib recipe in my new America’s Test Kitchen Slow Cooker Revolution cookbook and I knew it was going to be what I used. Like most good slow cooker recipes, this one does have a couple extra steps, but I loved that the extra steps were after the slow cooking, not before, because sometimes my cooking skills at 8 AM are not the sharpest. The original recipe is fairly large and should be made in a large oval slow cooker.

Easy Barbecued Ribs In a small bowl, mix together paprika, brown sugar, cayenne and S&P. Now comes the only stove/oven work involved, we need to reduce the sauce and then brown the ribs under the broiler. Enjoy! Kaytucky Chicken. I have a really fun recipe for you!

And easy, too. It’s hardly any work; the oven does the work for you, but it’s a really fun and tasty way to serve chicken for a change. Serve with an Avocado & Fennel Salad, lots of skillet baked potatoes and a little Green Peppercorn Sauce, but that’s mainly because I’m seriously addicted to how the sauce tastes on potatoes. This was absolutely delicious! Directions: 4 chicken fillets 4 frozen puff pastry sheets 4 oz cream cheese (the firm kind) few rashes of bacon flat-leaf parsley 1 spring onion 1 large egg pepper salt This is what we call ontbijtspek here.

I’ve also chopped a spring onion with my cute orange baby Santoku. And I’ve finely chopped a small handful of flat-leaf parsley. Add the spring onions, parsley, crumbled up bacon and a good pinch of pepper to 4 oz firm cream cheese; I’ve opted for low-fat cream cheese. Mix it all up. Make a fairly deep cut in each chicken fillet. Until I ended up with puff pastry looking like this. Kay’s Recipe Card. Perfect Mac-n-Cheese « My Cooking Quest. November 13, 2008 by joejhorn A few weeks ago I started a quest for some good mac and cheese.

Perfect Mac-n-Cheese « My Cooking Quest

Nancy makes a killer mac-n-cheese but I wanted my own. I’m sure I frustrate the crap out of Nancy sometimes because I’m always looking for something better when it comes to food and recipes. Now mind you , this mac-n-cheese is not Bobby Flay mac-n-cheese with some crazy-sexy ingredients, but it is really, really good! I would make it for any of my friends and be proud. My first attempt was with a Jamie Oliver version that didn’t include a bechamel sauce but instead called for mixing the cooked pasta with the cheese and then baking it. The second version, I made a few nights ago for my best bud Chad, Nancy and the boys.

Chad is up from San Francisco and has been visiting for the past week. Last night was particularly funny though since you can customize your player characters. Well back to the mac-n-cheese. Perfect Mac-n-Cheese (serves 4 as a side dish) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Like this: Lasagna Soup. With spring officially arriving last weekend, this house could pretty much assume that soup would be a rarity for a few months.

Lasagna Soup

I’m just not the kind to put a hot pot on the stove during the spring and summer, unless we have some unseasonably cool weather. My husband, on the other hand, would welcome a cup of hot chili or soup almost any day of the year. But just as soon as spring finally decided to peek out, it disappeared. Gone. Nowhere to be found. When we awoke Wednesday morning, it was to the broadcast of yet another winter storm warning. But you know the saying…“if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”… So I made soup! I found this Lasagna Soup recipe in our local Kowalski’s Markets magazine, originally from the cookbook 300 Sensational Soups. The soup is truly like lasagna in a bowl. I substituted mafalda pasta for the recipe’s fusilli, because aren’t they just the cutest mini lasagna looking noodles you ever did see?

But, next week, folks…I promise you’ll be seeing spring around here. Source.
