CAPTAIN COOKS – BABY BACK BEER RIBS

CAPTAIN COOKS – BABY BACK BEER RIBS

Our weather here in the Great White North, has been on a meteorological roller coaster lately.

CAPTAIN COOKS: SPICY ITALIAN CRESCENT RING

Today I was doing my usual browsing through recipes for ideas and I came across one that caught François’ attention: spicy, Italian, and meaty. and then he announced: “I want to make that!” Really? So this was the day the Galley Kat stepped back and let ‘he who offered to cook’ take over. …(happily)… …he shopped… …and returned with all his treasures… …I offered help and he gave me this look… (“back off! this is my show!”)   …’OK, so…
