Recipe Thursday-Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Posted on August 22nd, 2013 | Posted in Breakfast and Brunch, Dessert, Recipes

With all the summer harvest there is an abundance of zucchini and summer squash being passed out from my neighbor’s garden. I was the recipient of a very large 7 pound zucchini that I made two loaves of Chocolate Zucchini Bread with and still have half of it leftover for something else. The bread was for our morning Birthday and Anniversary Treat so I made one loaf with walnuts and one without. This delicious bread was moist as all zucchini bread should be, and the cocoa powder was a nice change to a traditional bread. Serve with cream cheese and European style butter.

Featured Product-Clemens Country Style Ribs

Posted on August 19th, 2013 | Posted in Featured Product, Supplier of the Month

I grilled Clemens Country Style Ribs for the first time this past week and loved them! I believe that everyone should give them a try. If you are under educated on this style rib, as I was, enjoy theses basics from PorkBeInspired.com.

Country-style ribs are cut from the sirloin or rib end of the pork loin. The meatiest variety of ribs, country-style ribs are sold either as “slabs” or in individual servings. Clemens are sold as individual servings. These pork ribs are perfect for those who want to use a knife and fork.

Ribs are commonly prepared with either “wet” or “dry.” Ribs rubbed with a mixture of herbs and spices are called dry ribs. Such rubs can be applied just before barbecuing. Ribs basted with sauces during the barbecuing process are called wet ribs. For best results, brush ribs generously during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
