Corn on the Cob - microwave method





I have been glamping the last few weeks and on one evening, I had both my burners occupied and it was raining outside.....I wanted to cook my corn and tried a new method, that worked perfectly!

I took the husks off my corn, and wrapped it in a damp paper towel. 

I then put the corn in a single layer on a paper plate and placed in the micro wave. Cook on high for 5 minutes.....PRESTO!!!  You have corn ready to eat! 

Have a super holiday week end!

Irish Lamb Stew

  

What could be more delicious than a bowl of heart warming Irish Stew? This is the favorite in Ireland and is loved all over the world! Irish stew is traditionally made with mutton (older sheep) but, nowadays, it is made more often with lamb....may seem like a waste but the flavor is amazing.

Bolognese Sauce


This sauce is the best sauce I have ever tasted! It is worth every minute! The layers of delicious flavor will delight your palate! I like to double the recipe and freeze in increments that we know we will use.

Making this very authentic Italian sauce is easy and requires no special skills. I perfected this bolognese sauce over several years. Adding this, taking out that. The end result is stunning and miles away from that awful tomato sauce from a jar.

This traditional spaghetti bolognese is a real winner. Your family will thank you for it!

Cambozola Tarts




Blue cheese is one of Wee Bears favorite cheeses, he loves a couple tablespoons crumbles on his salad. He loves blue cheese on his hamburger.....he loves it! It is a cheese you love or hate! So, here comes a milder version. Cambozola has a particular mildness similar to a buttery triple creme or a brie. Cambozola is a combination of Camembert style cheese and Gorgonzola.  You sort of get half of each! You get a delicious mushroomy brie quality- it has delicious pockets of blue cheese, tiny little pockets....perfect for introducing someone to the world of "Blue".

Instant Pot Baby Back Ribs





My mouth is watering as I sit finishing up this blog just in time for Super Bowl. I made these delicious baby back ribs a few months ago for football season. They are so delicious! Of course so tender because, as in my previous rib recipe, Baby Back Ribs, I used the instant pot. So much quicker than the oven or boiling method. The sauce contains a Hoisin sauce, similar flavors as in the  Asian Style Flankin Ribs  I made a year ago. You won't be disappointed, these are KILLER!
