Simple Country Ribs
I made these today and thought they were excellent. Instead of basting them with the watered down bbq sauce, we used bbq sauce from the bottle when grilling them. They were so tender!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread
Excellent! I used 1/2 veg oil and 1/2 applesauce but otherwise did not change a thing.

Nonnie's Ham Chowder
This was excellent. I only used white onion because Vidalia are not in season now, I didn't have the chicken bouillon so used about 1/2 of the 3 cups milk and 1-1/2 cups chicken broth. I also sauteed a little celery along with the onion.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
