  • Juneteenth and the 4th of July is over, but I’m still in a celebratory mood all Summer long! Enjoying all the backyard bbq’s and in this case, “in home bbq” I can muster. .

This recipe is fall off the bone tenderness right in your oven. They taste like your favorite Uncle Rodney bbq these thangs! .
.

Step 1. Buy your favorite type of ribs, I used baby backs here, be sure to ask your butcher to cut the membrane off the backs. It will save you time at home😉 🐄

Step 2. I like to squeeze some lime to cleanse the meat for good measure 🤷🏽‍♀️ 🐄

Step 3. Sprinkle kosher salt and cracked black pepper to season. Sprinkle Paprika, Cajun seasoning (Tony’s will do) and a bit of brown sugar. Rub it in nicely. 🐄

Step 4.  With heavy duty foil paper, wrap the ribs tightly. Place on a baking pan and bake slowly on 250 degrees for 2 1/2-3 hours. When 🐄

My homemade sauce is a bit extensive, too extensive to put in this post ( I’ll blog about at some point).So feel free to slather your favorite BBQ sauce on the ribs once they are done. You could put them back in the oven for 10 minutes more to get the bbq sauce all married into the ribs, or not.

The ends results are tender, fall off the bone, melt in your mouth goodness. Try it!
  • This is certainly the season for all things salad 🥗. Lettuce can become a bore, so try other fresh ingredients such as cucumbers, red onions, garlic scapes, quail eggs and tomatoes. Crack some pepper on top with salt add your favorite vinaigrette. And for extra zest add some crumbled feta cheese. Easy, delicious and healthy♥️ .

Classic Homemade Buttermilk Strawberry Shortcake

Ah!! Summer! The longer days, the ripe trees and berries in all it’s abundance. This is the season to indulge yourself in everything berry, strawberry to be exact.

No summer is complete without having strawberry shortcake at least once throughout the season. It’s simply delicious and fun to make, instant smiles happen when you plate this up for your loved ones. Not to be confused with the equally delicious cake version, but we’re going old school style with this classic dessert. A delicious made from scratch biscuit will have you feeling like you been baking for years!

I’m quite proud about this  strawberry shortcake recipe. It took me so many trials and error to finally get a delicious, tender, and flavorful biscuit. I couldn’t be more delighted to share this with you all.

The biscuit has a nice subtle sweetness, filled with sweetened strawberries that creates a juicy sauce to drizzle for an eye pleasing experience. And of course theirs freshly made whipped cream that’s way to simple to make, so skip the cool whip and get your hand mixer out.

Bonita’s Simple, Fresh Fruit Salad

Salad season is upon us in a big way and if you’re like me I love-making the most out of it. A salad is not limited to just lettuce and tomato, fruits can be a spectacular salad hence making it a fruit salad.

Fruit

Colorful and delicious fruit salad.

What elevates this fruit salad is the wonderful dressing that accompanies it so well.

For the dressing I use one lime squeezed, half of a naval orange, agave nectar, cardamom. Simple and quite luscious.

This salad is ideal for any sort of gathering. Think a wedding, brunch gathering, a tea party, or in a big bowl at home on a Saturday morning. Tasty all by itself, but even more delightful as a topping on a nice slice of cake! Continue Reading…
