BBQ RIBS-That'll stick to YOUR ribs!

I still have my sinus infection

and went back for


of antibiotics yesterday.

If this doesn't work I may be

cutting my nose off to spite my face

going to a specialist (again).

First, let me say that for all of you

that fuss about cooking---

 I have been

"off-duty" for almost a year

since MyHero can't eat

regular food.

I thought it would be a relief

to not have to cook all the time...


Anyway, I have decided

I need to cook even if it is

just for myself.

I like easy rib-filling recipes

this time of year.

It can't get much easier than this.

Looky here~
Here's my simple recipe.

Mix together:

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon garlic POWDER

1 tsp. hickory smoke salt*

*I don't always use the salt because

some people don't like it.

Rub 4 pounds cut up ribs with

above mixture.

Layer in heavy oven proof

roasting dish.

I put tinfoil between the layers

of ribs.
Bake at 300 degrees for 2-4 hours

(until meat is tender)

Just before serving:

Cover with about 2 cups BBQ sauce.

I use Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce
Place under broiler for 2-3 minutes

until browned and bubbly.

Serve with garlic mashed potatoes,

green beans and 

baking powder biscuits

or cornbread.
Rib sticking good-

I promise.


Guess who's NOT happy?

Hoping to feel well enough

to work on my Etsy shop 

later this week.

Tonight I have a special guest visitor.

Hope he brought enough work in 

that briefcase to keep himself busy...

Otherwise, we might have to interact with him..

and you KNOW.....

"Ain't nobody got time for that".........

  1. Diana, I have wondered what you ate...wish your man could help you eat those ribs. That's a good recipe. I am writing it down for my girls. I love that picture of your grandson. He is just adorable. I have Emma here. I can tell more and more she is growing up. She had less time talking (playing on her phone).Today we may do a craft, just so we can talk together. Blessings for a fun filled weekend, xoxo, love, Susie

  2. Oh yummy!!! Wish I could come over and share some those ribs with you. So sorry about your sinus infection - those are a bear to try to get rid of! That little gury reminds me of Alex Keaton on Family Ties. What a cutie pie. Have a great week!!

  3. Those ribs look amazing. "Low and slow" is the only way to go when cooking ribs! What an adorable picture of your grandson! -Jenn

  4. Good Morning, Sweetpea!!

    That's a luscious-sounding recipe---I'll have to pick up that salt soon. We have about fifteen kinds in the house, including a lot of PINK ones, and I don't remember seeing hickory.

    And your VISITOR!! That handsome young man means BUSINESS, in all its definitions. What a sweet, beautiful family you have.

    We had our own "guest" for the past two nights, and have had such a good time together---last night was "movie night" with burgers in front of the TV, with an episode of Andy and Opie for our entertainment. We love introducing her to the old shows which depict loving families and good thoughts.

    Hope you're enjoying OCTOBER!!


  5. Ok Yum!!!! These look so good and easy to make. Happy Friday. Wishing you a great weekend.

  6. I do not cook much anymore. Hard to cook for one. Save me a place, will join you as ribs one of my favorite dishes. Wish your grandson was older as he has the looks of a fine president.

  7. Yum, looks so good,Diana. I love Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce.

  8. That boy is just adorable! Your food sound delish.

  9. Hi Diana, I love ribs and thanks for the recipe to make them. I hope you feel better and enjoy the weekend. :)

  10. Going to try these soon. thanks for the recipe.

  11. Well I am going to copy that recipe - looks wonderful.

    And your grandson is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute dressed up like that! Wonderful!!

  12. I would miss cooking too. I have been looking for a way to cook ribs that would satisfy my rib lover! I am going to try this. Poor piggie. Now that little boy looks well able to entertain himself, but I think Nana will get into his business. She can't help herself. 😂 Get well.

  13. Ribs and mashed potatoes....yum. Looks like you'll have a little help eating all of that when Mr. Cutie Pants arrives.
    xo, T.

  14. Oh those look delicious! Hope you are feeling better soon, so you can enjoy that adorable grandson's visit!

  15. Oh yummy, yum, yum! My guys love ribs. I'm writing this one down. We love anything with a smokey flavor!

    I'm sorry you still aren't over that darn sinus infection. Please don't cut your nose might look a little strange and good luck explaining that to people. Ha! ;)
    Enjoy your time with your grandson, I'm sure he'll keep you on your toes.
    Hugs my friend,
