Donald’s Deals

Friday, January 26th, 2018

Share on Facebook Growing up I’d love to spend summers at my maw maw’s house. One of the daily rituals was watching game shows including “Let’s Make a Deal.” We got a chuckle when someone picked a Zonk, one of the meaningless prizes. We are now into season 2 of Donald’s deals in Washington. Behind […]

Country Ribs and Artichoke Pasta

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Share on Facebook Country ribs are one of my all time favorites. They are full of flavor and meat. I had the luxury of marinating them for two days in a zip lock bag with 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/3 cup of olive oil. To the marinade I added 2 tablespoons of Coleman’s dry […]
