  1. Hello all, I have had a busy week and just realized that yet again I am cooking from the ebook and that I hadn't sourced the page numbers for the chapters. That said, I figured it wouldn't be such a big deal to simply list the chapters without the pages. If this is an issue please share feedback so I know for future postings.

      1. It's only June 3rd and I already have 6 recipes to report on. A good sign that I am finally going to get off the sidelines this month!

          1. finally got around to trying the caramelized pork ribs. loved them, though we both would have liked them spicier - and that's after i added 4 dried thai bird chilies to the sauce. this really is a very easy and quick dish, with very good flavors, and the meat was super tender. i made it yesterday and we ate it today. i actually think i would have preferred to eat it last night - the flavors had a little more vibrancy. The only thing i did different was using Makers' Mark instead of bourbon (it's what i had) and of course, the chilies.

            the garlicky coleslaw was particularly good. it calls for any veggie you want, and then the dressing of mayo, RWV, dijon, pepper, and minced garlic. i used green cabbage, scallions, arugula that needed to be used, jalapeno, cilantro, radishes, cherry tomatoes, and minced ginger. very nice with the pork. i'd probably go a little lighter on the mayo next time, as it was very rich (although, admittedly, i was using Kewpie mayo which i find creamier and richer than regular mayo.)
