Oven Cooked Baby Back Ribs Recipe

For each rack of baby back ribs, season with seasoning salt, black pepper, Worchestershire Sauce, liquid smoke. Wrap in heavy duty foil and refrigerate overnight or several hours in refrigerator. Place foil wrapped baby back ribs in foil lined pan, ( I use an oversize cookie sheet and bake 2 racks
at a time.) Bake at 300 degrees 3-4 hrs. Open, foil, but do not remove foil. Pour generous amount of barbecue sauce over ribs. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees. Super good and little clean up job!

In response to Barb's question about Chocolate Covered Pretzels, June 1, Chocolate Almond Bark ( available at most grocery stores and Wal Mart)melted according to package directions works nicely. Then, dip pretzels into the melted bark. Cool on wax paper. The white chocolate bark works
nicely too. In my opinion, one would need to add some paraffin to chocolate chips in order for it to work.

Today when I came home from Little One wasn't there to greet me at the door. I wasn't sure where he was so I went looking for him. I finally found him sound asleep on his food bowl. He didn't sleep well last night because of the severe weather yesterday and last night. I was surprised he didn't hear the garage door open. Poor baby, he could hardly keep his eyes open. I bet he will sleep tonight. Since his outdoor experience, he has been waking me up several times during the night. He wakes me up by getting as close to me as he can, lays his head on my shoulder and takes more than his share of my pillow. I don't mind sharing the pillow if he didn't snore so
loudly. Friends keep telling me I have spoiled cats. I just respond that they are loved cats, LOL.

Last night a neighborhood cat showed up on my doorstep during the thunderstorm (and 6 inches of rain.) He (or she) looked so pitiful and sooo wet. I couldn't let him stay outside so I opened up the garage and let him stay there until to storm was over. The cat was very appreciative rubbed up against me when I let him (or her) out after the storm. Today when I came home from work he greeted me at the garage door with a toy in his mouth. He didn't want in, he just wanted to say hello and leave his toy frog in my garage.I am glad he didn't bring his suitcase with him., LOL. I can't see any animal suffer during a storm. This cat was in my backyard during a bad storm. He couldn't get under the storage shed for shelter because it was flooded in the in both the backyard and under the shed.

Triple Chocolate Caramel Cookies Recipe

Another really good cookie from Jessica Crisafulli given to me via the original OKT that Di and I started. A favorite of my husband Tim's.

1-1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 pkg (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 bottle (12 1/2 ounces) caramel ice cream topping
4 to 6 ounces dark chocolate candy coating, melted

Heat oven 350 F. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour and cocoa. Gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and the pecans. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 3/8 to 1/2 deep indentation in the center of each ball. Smooth any cracks. Fill each indentation half full with caramel topping. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until caramel is very bubbly and the cookies are set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks. Drizzle cooled cookies with candy coating. Yield: 6 dozen cookies

This is one of my families favorite recipes. It is really easy to make. You can also make the filling in advance, and freeze it, or sometimes I divide the filling in half, and freeze part of it, and bake the rest with half the topping in a 8 or 9 inch baking dish. Make the topping when you are ready to bake it.
I've found it is hard to write a recipe, and still tell the changes I make. A lot of ingredients I just put in the amount we like. If you are counting Weight Watcher points, this one comes to 8 Smart Points if it is divided into 12 servings.

PopOver Pizza Recipe

Brown 1 lb. hamburger with chopped onion (however much onion you like)

Add one package of spaghetti sauce mix (recipe below)
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce 1/2 cup water

Any pizza ingredients you like - I usually add a 4 oz. can of mushrooms

Simmer a few minutes, and then put in a greased 9 X 13 baking dish.

Top with a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheese (however much you like) I like cheddar best, so usually put at least a cup, and maybe 1/2 cup of mozzarella

Mix topping ingredients in a blender and pour over meat mixture.

2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tbsp. cooking oil
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt

Then sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees about 30 minutes.

To make Spaghetti Sauce Mix equal to one package:

Combine 1 tbsp. minced onion (or more)
1 tsp. parsley

Hi Nancy, Re: 6/1 N/L for Barb, I have found that most of the recipes I've used for homemade Candy there is usually some paraffin included in the melted chocolate. I put the paraffin, chips, in my crockette pot, after it melts, stir well, throw in a handful of pretzels, stir, then dip them out with either tongs, or a granny fork, lay on parchment or waxed paper. They will
set up after the coating cools.

Also Nancy, I have found several recipes I wanted to print in the last few days but the "click here to print" wasn't at bottom of recipe, I am certainly not very literate on the computer, so is probably something simple that I'm not doing. Have a nice day, give "fur babies" a hug for me.

Could you let me know which recipes and which newsletter the recipes were in?  This is one newsletter I had to quit early on because of an approaching storm.  I plan to try and get to attaching the recipes to the print recipe page this weekend.

In the May 31 letter the recipe for Mike's Creamy Polenta is not clear. Seems the amount of half & half is incorrect. Please advise us what the amount should be.

Hello to all. I am looking for a recipe for Cinnamon Biscuits. My daughter loves them. I have bought them off of the Schwan's truck in the past, but they haven't carried them for years now. About a year ago I found the White Lilly brand in our local grocery store. But they no longer are making them.
Thanks in advance.
