A Warm Spring Supper

Dinner is finally in the oven to cook for about 45 minutes and I am finally getting to sit on the back porch on this totally warm evening. "Deep breath."
Tonight I have made barbecued country style pork ribs with a side of parsley and herb roasted potatoes. Smells delicious!
Before I put the ribs in the covered stoneware baker I seasoned them with greek seasoning and browned them on both sides in olive oil on the stove top. Then I put them in the covered stoneware baker and poured the juice from the pot over top of them. I sliced up a large, sweet onion and covered the ribs with them and then sprinkled on some 21 salute spice mix. 
I mixed up a concoction of two barbecue sauces, chili sauce, and a little chipolte spice and poured it over the top. I have it baking in a 385 degree oven.
For the potatoes:
I simply peeeled and quartered medium sized potatoes, washed and dried them and placed them in a size appropiate bowl. I drizzled olive oil all over them, added salt and pepper, and about a tablespoon of fresh parsley. I mixed it al up and poured it into a round baking dish uncovered to bake along side the ribs.
Hope everyone has had a gorgeous, warm day!
Hugz!

New Found Chop THerapy and Fresh Herbs & Spices...

For the past two years I have been cooking more and more with fresh herbs instead of dried spices. Needless to say, it has taken my recipes to a whole new level and with so much more flava!! I have also found that I really, really enjoy chopping vegetables and herbs more than I imagined possible. I actually find chopping in the kitchen extremely therapeutic for me. Who would have thought?!
My spaghetti sauce, chili, soups, and even my stuffed bell peppers have been completely reformed. When ever I can I use fresh tomatoes instead of canned. So much better. I have been watching the food channels almost daily on my Ipad while I am in the kitchen preparing for dinner. Not too long ago I made the best version of stroganoff I have ever eaten just by adding Italian Mascarpone to thicken the gravy rather than the traditional sour cream. No bragging just saying food education is a very good thing! Now, Italian cream cheese is sweeter and a bit milder than our major brand over here but it mak…

My 2nd Favorite Breakfast! Yum!

This just happens to be what I had for dinner two nights ago. Pecan filled waffles made on my new Cuisinart 5 in 1 griddle that I had to buy to replace to replace my G. Foreman griddle that had gotten severely damaged when moved into the house last July. I had been starving for waffles ever since we moved in but could not find a proper replacement for my machine. I really loved the versatility of my G. F. grill but the newer ones?? Well, bottom line is I hated the painted looking colors and thought they might be hard to maintain since one does use oil of one kind or another when cooking on it, So, I finally decided to choose the stainless steel finish on the Cuisinart brand, as well as the vesatility of being able to select different temperatures to cook with as well. In conclusion? My new Cuisinart cooks at higher temps so my food gets done quicker. I haven't tried it yet but, I believe it will make a mean grilled panini! I am a happy camper! Oh! This post was supposed to be abou…
