Baby Back Ribs (in the Oven)

These were yummy - (sorry, no picture). Not quite as good as AC's ribs but very good.

I had a package of ribs that I needed to get cooked so I rubbed it with Rib Rub - double wrapped it in foil and stuck it in a 325 degree oven for about 3 hours. Opened it up and poured Bulls Eye BBQ sauce on it (not alot) and stuck it back in the oven for about 30 minutes. The meat just fell off the bones!

Make the rub in advance and they take about 2 minutes to prepare! (I'm sure there's a rib rub you can buy already made but I had this from Christmas!)

Kansas City-style Rib Rub: (foodnetwork)

1/3 c. light brown sugar

1/3 c. sugar

1/4 c. paprika

2 TBS. ESSENCE (recipe follows)

6 TBS. kosher salt

2 TBS. onion powder

1 TBS. garlic salt

1 TBS. fresh ground black pepper

1 TBS. chili powder

1 tsp. mustard powder

(not sure I used these next 3 things):

1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1/4 tsp. ground allspice

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Emeril's Essence: (foodnetwork)

2 1/2 TBS. paprika

2 Tbs. salt

2 TBS. garlic powder

1 TBS. black pepper

1 TBS. onion powder

1 TBS. cayenne pepper

1 TBS. dried thyme

1 TBS. dried oregano (omitted)

Combine all ingreds. thoroughly.

Shara will have to post Aaron's delicious rib recipe!

Frito Burrito

This is the newest menu item for stay-at-home-mom's--to make our lunches a little more interesting.

Make a bean burrito like normal (tortilla, beans, cheese), but add some Fritos before you roll it up for a yummy crunch. (plain or the chili cheese flavored Fritos are good). You can even make it fancy with tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, etc. for an even better treat!

This was discovered by one of my sisters who chooses to remain unnamed.
It makes a yummy lunch!!!
