Vote in the Blogger Choice Awards

Now you can vote for your favorite blogs in the Blogger Choice Awards , namely food blogs. Final awards will be listed in June. In the left margin is a list of the awards, so click on your favorite category namely food blogs. Those blogs nominated will show with the number of votes. You need to register if you want to vote as well as to nominate a favorite blog. My food blog is nominated even if way down on the list. What fun!
Decided to make BBQ Ribs this weekend. No, not on the bbq but just as good. Cover your slab of ribs with water with seasonings and slow-cook for about 2 hours or until tender. Remove ribs and slather with bbq sauce(clone of Applebee's sauce). Place ribs under broiler for about 5-7 minutes on each side. So good, tasty and tender. Serve with baked potato and salad and enjoy.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE

Just browsing today and found a few recipes for Easter morning breakfast. At CRISCO.COM they had a braided, bread roll which looked really good. You would probably want to make it today as it used yeast. At TASTE OF HOME there was sticky buns or hot cross buns using a can of biscuits as the base. A quicky recipe without using yeast. As far as preparing Easter dinner, ham and lamb is the fare with asparagus on the side. I picked up my asparagus yesterday, so I am ready. Go to all your favorite food sites and you can find many great ideas. I got most of my ideas at MOM'S MENU mainly because the recipes are so homey(just like MOM used to make.) One idea I found there was for a CARROT CAKE which is one of my favorites. I decided to make cupcakes from the recipe. That way I can freeze them and have them as a treat now and them.
Happy Easter and enjoy your day where ever you spend your meal.

DON'T MESS WITH OUR CHOCOLATE

I am a chocoholic, I admit it and like it just the way it is. But it looks like the FDA is trying to make changes in the definition of Chocolate according to info at the Candy Blog. Check it out and see what you can do to let the FDA know how you feel. You can link to the dontmesswithourchocolate site to spread the word.
