Threw some country style ribs in the crock with garlic, onion, and homemade bbq sauce. Served with twice baked potatoes, exceptionally tender and falling off the bone. The ribs, not the taters :). A bit of a PSA here, but NEVER season a dish after a half bottle of wine, I had the bright idea to grab my reserved "rub" and season the ribs before browning them and throwing them in the pot. Well, thru Moscato glasses, rub=blackening seasoning. In case you didn't know, they soooo are not equal, lol. Welcome to the world Lisa's sweet but exceptionally spicy crock pot ribs!

i'm the exact opposite.

whenit comes to cooking, i've found a few under my belt helped me sense flavours better, thus cook better.

I am right there with you on this one. I taste, then taste, then after I think everything is perfect, I taste. The thing is, thru my fantastic wine goggles, I truly thought I was grabbing a container of my 'rub', which is anchored by brown sugar with a bunch of seasonings. Yet I grabbed a container of blackening seasoning, which is soooo pepper (cayenne, chipotle, all of the above) heavy. Since I was just browning the ribs, couldn't really taste em as they still weren't cooked thru, but despite the fact that they were spicy as Satan, they were still good!

That certainly does look good. I took a picture of my stew,
but the batteries were dying. It tasted good, though

I posted a recipe for Cuban bread that I thought might be an alternative to the bread mix.

Looks delish. I could actually make that for dinner tonight, since I have all the stuff.
