Degree of Difficulty: 3-4
Mess Factor: 3
I was inspired by a recipe I saw on Pinterest, but ultimately this became my own recipe based on tools I had on hand and the ingredients my family enjoys. It's pretty easy and pretty quick to make. The hardest part and the reason I wavered on my difficulty score comes into play when trying to roll up the loaf with the filling. I tend to make too much filling, so when I roll up the loaf and try to flip it over to put the seam on the bottom it's a mess. After my first attempt, I have just left the seam on the top which usually means it opens up. I don't really mind, but you can see both options below and make the recipe whichever way works for you!
The original recipe recommended one pound of Jimmy Dean sage sausage and cheddar cheese. We always have mozzarella cheese on hand, so I decided to go with a more Italian flair and use ground Italian sausace.
Easiest Ribs Ever
Degree of Difficulty: 1
Mess Factor: 3
This recipe is actually from my aunt and uncle. They make the best ribs and I am lucky enough to enjoy them when we have large family gatherings at their place. These ribs literally fall off the bone and their taste is entirely derived from the spice rub you choose. Experiment until you find a rub that works for you. If there is any leftover ribs, take the meat off the bones and use for pulled pork sandwiches later in the week!
There are 3 ingredients for this recipe: ribs, apple juice/grape juice/apple cider, and spice rub.
I am have plenty more recipes and pics, so hopefully I should get up at least one more blog post this week and at least 2 next week. Plus, I finished the headboard in our master bedroom and we are in the process of painting our kitchen cabinets. Wait until you see the transformation! Glad to be back!
