Barbequed Ribs
This recipe was perfect. The ribs were so tender after roasting. The only thing we did differently was eat them the same day. Instead of leaving the dry rub on overnight, I let the ribs cool a bit on the counter with the dry rub on them (maybe an hour). Then I grilled them while basting with the sauce. Ribs can be so hard to cook. I don't have the option of a smoker since I live in a condo, so I have tried every other method (crock pot, boiled in beer, slow cooked on the grill) and this method is by far the best. My boyfriend gets ribs at most restaurants if they are on the menu, and he decided these were better! Try this recipe and impress your friends and family!!

Green Tomato Relish
This is the best relish! We get this from a relative as a Christmas present every year and we go through it so quickly, we can't wait for the next year to get another jar. I have a large amount of end of season green tomatoes and I decided to look up the recipe to see if I could duplicate it, and this was a match. We joked that this is so good we would eat it on ice cream! I made half a recipe and didn't change a thing. I found another reviewers suggestiong of adding water to the blender to help chop the tomatoes very helpful as I don't have a food processor. I would add one cut up tomato (or pepper or onion) and just enough water to cover. Pulse a few times until chopped to the consistency you want, then drain through a fine mesh strainer. Then into the cheesecloth. Thank you for the tips and for a wonderful recipe!!

Antipasto Pasta Salad
This is the best pasta salad I have ever made. I have brought it to three parties and I always end up writing down the recipe for everyone. I followed the recipe exactly and the only thing I added was a can of sliced artichoke hearts. I had trouble finding asiago cheese at my grocery store and then I found that they sell it in the deli. I ask them to slice two half inch thick slices for me equal to half a pound and then all I have to do is dice it. I wouldn't want to use any other cheese, the flavor of the asiago really adds to this recipe. Thanks for a great recipe!!
