Baby Back Ribs
Hi everyone! I used spare ribs browned the ribs first in EVOoooh no :) I placed them in foil pans, made one flavor homemade honey garlic ginger teriyaki and one oney mustard BBQ. I put tons of seasonings on them and tons of garlic then covered with foil and baked as directed. i served them with extra sauce, cut up into individual ribs. Nom nom nom!!! VERY inexpensive for ribs and simply delicious!

Pammy's Slow Cooker Beans
Thank you SO much for a great base bean recipe! The beans turned out perfect for me. I added salt after 6 hours. (I cooked for 9 hours total.) I also used a few slices of bacon rather than the turkey. THIS is the perfect recipe for making beans to add to dishes, or just on it's own!

Burger or Hot Dog Buns
Great recipe. We made these as burger and hotdog buns. The texture was great. We used shortening in place of the butter. Turned out beautifully. SO much better for the wallet than buying store bought too!
