Who says you have to pack up the grill once summer ends? I actually prefer to grill in the fall. The warmth from the grill adds some relief from that brisk air. What better way to warm up and feast than with grilled BBQ Country Style Ribs?!
Grilling makes everything better, especially meat (and corn on the cob – oh my goodness! There’s nothing like a flame grilled meat.
These Grilled BBQ Country Style Ribs are super simple too. All you really need to do is mix up the BBQ sauce, rub the meat with some salt and pepper and slap them on the hot grill. Open a beer, sit back and relax until it’s time to flip ’em.
The beauty is that you can use any sauce or rub you wish. It’s all personal preference. I’ll give you the recipe I use which is just a simple bbq sauce.
Just don’t expect there to be leftovers!
The story behind this recipes is a girl’s trip I took. I am not sure why but I always wanted to go to Greece. I finally had the opportunity to go to Greece a couple of summers ago. The taste of the fresh feta cheese has never left my mind. I have three kids and they love pasta. The problem is I am over pasta and sauce so I decided to dice up what I had on hand and I came up with this wonderful recipe for Greek Pasta Salad Recipes .
Greek Pasta Salad Recipes

You will cook the pasta as per the instructions on the box. Then you will cut and combine the ingredients above. You will poor those ingredients over the drained pasta.

Another Greek Pasta salad Recipe idea is adding shrimp or chicken to this dish. If you aren’t in the mood for the past take the greek salad mix and place it in a wrap with ham , chicken, or shrimp. I have to say this taste great the second day as well as the first. One thing is for sure that this recipe reminds me of greece. It has become a family favorite and it is what I eat when I want to get back to my wonderful Greek vacation.
I love going down the ethnic aisle in the grocery store. There’s so much inspiration there. My latest grocery store endeavor left my pantry filled with the goodies I need to practice for my Cinco de Mayo festivities. Yea, I have a month to go but I need the practice. I want to make traditional Mexican dishes so I’m reaching out to some awesome Latin friends for those recipes.
I have a Latin background, with my father being Puerto Rican, but I want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with true Mexican foods. I asked my friend, Julia, what some of her favorite foods were and the first thing she mentioned was tamales. I have never made tamales before, so when she told me it was a lot of work I kind of brushed it off. Let me just say, making homemade tamales is a lot of work!
I found everything I needed to make homemade tamales in the ethnic aisle. I even found a tamalera, which is basically a steamer used for cooking the tamales. It’s also great for seafood and canning – a nice investment I can be proud of. I also picked up a bag of tamale flour and just followed the directions on the back for that.
While the tamales did take a while to prepare and cook, the process wasn’t complicated. I’ll definitely be adding this to our Cinco de Mayo menu and hopefully bringing others in to help make them.
