Ribs & Sauerkraut (for Slow Cooker or Dutch Oven)

for Slow Cooker or a Campfire Dutch Oven
Ribs and sauerkraut cooked in either the slow cooker or in a "real" Dutch oven over coals or an open fire. The meat is moist and fall-off-the-bone tender, the sauerkraut amber-colored and apple-sweet. A real treat for fall! ~ Skip Straight to the Recipe ~

A Thoughtful, Practical Wedding GiftWhen my parents returned from a short honeymoon at the family cottage in Manitoba’s Whiteshell, waiting on the stove in their new home was an inky-black cast iron skillet, a surprise from my grandmother.So practical, that gift.

Ina Garten's Tabbouleh Salad Recipe

My latest summer salad recipe, a big batch of homemade tabbouleh salad using Ina Garten’s recipe, an easy combination of bulgur wheat, lemon juice and olive oil with cucumber, tomato, green onion, fresh parsley and fresh mint.

Shakshuka (Eggs Nested in Summer Vegetables) Recipe

Such familiar ingredients, such a surprising – and surprisingly tasty – quick and easy breakfast or quick supper recipe. Shakshuka is a one-skillet egg and vegetable (tomatoes, onions, peppers) dish from North Africa (Tunisia, Algeria) that's become a mainstay healthy meal in Israel – and now at our house and with any luck, yours too! We especially love it with fresh tomatoes during the summer but it works great year-round with canned tomatoes too.

Fresh & Seasonal But Works Year-Round. Very Weight Watchers Friendly. Whole30 Friendly. Great for Meal Prep.
