These Sweet Chili Glazed Baby Back Ribs offer a fun twist on an American classic!Ah, this is why I love upstate New York!  The weather.  We’ve finally escaped from the seemingly endless winter, and I couldn’t be more excited to finally spend time outside again!  The apple trees in the back of my yard have bloomed.  My wife and I even planted our garden this past weekend.  (Although we promptly had a frost warning that same night.  Frost warning…seriously?  It’s mid-May!)  Continue Reading »

BLT Salad Pasta: Tastes just like your favorite summer sandwich...just in pasta salad form!  Perfect for summer barbecues!Back when my wife and I lived in Atlanta, we grew tomatoes in our backyard like it was our job.  We planted a small garden on the side of our house, and every year we had a bumper crop of tomatoes.  And thanks to the warm weather down South, our tomato plants started growing in late February…and didn’t stop until early November.  Seriously.  We literally ate tomatoes all the time.  And we gave them away to everyone we knew.  And we still had too many tomatoes.  The solution?  BLT’s.  Delicious BLT’s.

4 Layer Twix Dessert Bars: These bars are chocolatey, caramely and perfect for summer!There were always a few things I could count on when I was a kid growing up in Charleston, SC.  For starters, my sister’s troll doll collection.  I could always count on her to be carrying that collection somewhere.  And I could count on the fact that I was not allowed to touch or even look at them…unless I paid her 25¢.  Bummer.  Continue Reading »
