Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs
This was a very tasty alternative to the way I've made ribs before. The boiling in the seasoned water did add flavor to the meat, and made the ribs very tender. I just took my best guess at the amount of seasoning to use since "10 pork spareribs" could vary greatly in size, and next time I think I'll go a little heavier on the lime. But the technique is very handy.

Beef and Vegetable Stew
This was quite different than the stew I normally make - and I knew going in that it would be since the base was tomato paste. I definitely discovered that I prefer a more gravy-based stew, not the tomato, but that's a matter for my tastebuds, not the recipe. And this stew was actually quite good. The only real change I made was to add some fresh garlic - I can't quite conceive of a stew without it. And I did a mix of peas and corn (mostly because I only had a partial bag of peas left). But I followed the rest of the recipe rather closely. I used a large sprig of freshly picked rosemary and didn't find it overpowering at all. I did wind up adding some salt and pepper toward the end of the simmer time, but again, that's just my tastebuds, and my responsibility as the cook to adjust seasoning to taste.

Roasted Wild Mushrooms and Potatoes
Very tasty side dish! I wish I could find the fresh exotic mushrooms, which would probably make it even better - but the reconstituted dried mushrooms worked fine. And since a couple of people here will not do raw garlic, I did saute that with the pancetta and mushrooms - but I added a little extra, because more garlic makes it better :-)
