Sticky oven ribs

Here I go.  I’m so excited about this side project I can hardly contain myself. It has been in the making since 2012, yup…that is when I purchased the domain name And everything has been on hold since that point, just sitting there waiting, you all know the excuses, life gets in the way, more important things to take care of, etc. I have been wanting to have a food/lifestyle type blog for the longest time. Food & pretty things get me excited. And I often get asked for recipes…so here goes nothing. ;o)

I love ribs, love them, finger licking deliciousness at it’s best. There’s just something so amazing that happens when you slow roast meat. Yes these ribs take a little while, but the nice thing is your oven does all of the work…really!!
