The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Bret's BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Whenever we visit my brother and his wife in Virginia, two things are guaranteed, good meat and moonshine. So when we had a wings & ribs night on vacation, I knew my brother's ribs would not disappoint. The ribs were falling off the bone and you could taste the love he put into them; they were marinated overnight, braised in beer, and then smoked over wood chips. Below is a picture of them, post marination and pre-braising.


Say hi to Bret.



Say hi to the ribs.

and our ribs and wings dinner.



And before I give you the recipe, I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of my niece enjoying our delicious dinner,she's a great eater and a girl after my own heart.




Ingredients - Adjust amounts to how much you would like to cook and to your tastes
2 racks baby back ribs
1-2 beers
BBQ Sauce - My brother uses this recipe and it was glorious, don't get intimidated by the ingredient list
apple wood chips, soaked

For the Dry Rub
brown sugar
garlic powder


Peel the membrane from the back side of the ribs, then coat in dry rub and marinate overnight.

Preheat oven to 325 and braise ribs for 2 hours. Meanwhile cook barbecue sauce, reducing it to make it thicker.

Smoke ribs over soaked (make sure you soak for at least an hour and shake off water before tossing them into fire) wood chips for an hour or until desired tenderness. Midway through cooking coat ribs with BBQ sauce, occasionally brush more on to suit your taste.

The ribs and wings were fabulous, but, more importantly, isn't that the cutest little girl you have ever seen?

Marinated baby back ribs tastes just right along with a serving of macaroni.
