For some reason, it is assumed that men have a thing for meat, especially grilled meat. If you happen to be attached to one of those type of men, I have been working on the perfect grilled meat for you to surprise him with. Succulent, tender-as-can-be ribs. And approachable enough for any female unfamiliar with the grill.

And even simple-to-make homemade barbecue sauce. This recipe is going to make your man so happy.

When will this recipe be ready for your kitchen and eating pleasure? The hope is to have "The Family Flavor: Practical Recipes for the Simple and Delicious" to be done and ready to send to my project manager by mid-November. From there, we go through editing, layout and design. So maybe another month or two after that. If you want a job done right, you take the right amount of time. In complete honesty, I am ready to see a finished product. I know the day I get my first copy of my book in the mail, I will cry like a big baby.


  1. I'm imagining the final scene from "Julie and Julia", when Julia opens the package and sees the book for the first time and lets out that fantastic joyful exclamation.
    I cried.
    So excited for you, friend!

  2. I can testify to these ribs.

    And to this cookbook. It's going to be amazeballs.

  3. I'm very excited! I plan on buying a copy for all the ladies birthdays in my family.. Everyone needs some good recipes in their life. ;)
