Scot Hibb's Amazing Whiskey Grilled Baby back Ribs

Endorsed by the Trove Chasers


2 (2 pound) slabs baby back pork ribs2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
coarsely ground black pepper2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. ground red Chile pepper1/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
2 1/4 Tbsp. vegetable oil1 1/4 tsp. liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 cup minced onion2 tsp. whiskey
1 1/2 cups water2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup tomato paste1/4 tsp. paprika
1/2 cup white vinegar1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 cup brown sugar1 Tbsp. dark molasses
2 1/2 Tbsp. honey1/2 Tbsp. ground red Chile pepper

1. Preheat oven to 300oF (150oC).

2. Cut each full rack of ribs in half, so that you have 4 half racks. Sprinkle salt and pepper (more pepper than salt), and 1 tablespoon chili pepper over meat. Wrap each half rack in aluminum foil. Bake for 2 1/2 hours

3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in oil for 5 minutes. Stir in water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with 2 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, liquid smoke, whiskey, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, dark molasses, and 1/2 tablespoon ground chili pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer for 1 1/4 hours, uncovered, or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat, and set sauce aside.

4. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. 5. Remove the ribs from the oven, and let stand 10 minutes. Remove the racks from the foil, and place on the grill. Grill the ribs for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Brush sauce on the ribs while they're grilling, just before you serve them (adding it too early will burn it).

Olive Garden Stuffed Chicken Parmigiana

By 4trax

COOKS NOTES: Leftover cheese filling may be kept in refrigerator for 2 weeks or frozen up to 3 months. Also makes good filling for manicotti.

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of all fat
2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 egg white
1 (15-16 ounce) container ricotta cheese
1 (3 ounce) can kraft romano cheese
1 1/2 cups kraft parmesan cheese (may use any brand)
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
1 (12 ounce) jar pasta sauce (marinara style sauce)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup Crisco or shortening
fresh grated parmesan cheese (optional)

1. Wash chicken breasts, do not dry, and split lengthwise, almost through to make a pocket

2. Combine ricotta, Romano, Parmesan, basil, thyme and oregano in mixing bowl. It will be crumbly.

3. Stuff into pocket of chicken, leaving a small "edge" to seal. Using egg white, rub around edge and pinch to seal. Or may use toothpicks, but be sure to remove before serving.

4. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and melt butter and Crisco in oven at 350 degrees. About 5 minutes.

5. Dredge wet chicken in breadcrumbs, coating well, and place on baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

6. Turn chicken and bake another 15 to 20 minutes.

7. While baking, heat pasta sauce until hot. Remove chicken from oven and spoon hot pasta sauce over each.

8. Before serving, top with grated, fresh Paramesan cheese, if desired.

Fake Cheesecake

by yellow_sunflowers

Graham Cracker Crumb mixed with butter or margarine. Too much butter and the crust gets too hard. Too little butter and it sticks to everything! Keep a little aside for the topping. Place in fridge to harden.

Mix together:
One box of Banana pudding (instant)
500ml Sour Cream
One can of Crushed Pineapple (drained) I use the can that's about 12 fl oz. sorry I don't have one here or I would know for sure!

Pour mixture on top of crust. then sprinkle leftover crumb mixture. Let sit in fridge to set for about an hour.
