Zinfandel's Barbequed Ribs

2 slabs pork spareribs
1/2 cup Zinfandel's Rib Rub
2 cups Zinfandel's Barbecue Sauce

The night before grilling (or at least several hours before), rub the Rib Rub into the spareribs, covering both sides. You may or may not need to use all of the rub.

About 3 hours before serving, build a charcoal fire, using about 2 quarts of good quality hardwood charcoal. When coals are covered with gray ash, but are still burning fiercely, spread them out and push them against two sides of the grill. You want to cook over indirect heat, not directly over the coals.

Place marinated ribs, bone side down, on the cooking rack and position the rack over the coals so that the ribs are in the middle of the grill, not directly over the coals. Cover the grill, adjust the top vents to open and walk away for 30 minutes.

After a half hour, lift the cover and take a peek. The ribs should browning nicely, and your neighbors should start wandering over to see what you are doing. Flip the ribs over to cook meat side down, replace the cover and wait another 30 minutes.

After an hour, the ribs should be dark brown, crispy and pulling away from the bone. At this point, pull them off the grill, cut between the bones and enjoy with warm Zinfandel Barbecue sauce. Serves 4.

Zinfandel Skillet Cornbread

Post  justmecookin on Mon Oct 13, 2008 11:56 am

Zinfandel Skillet Cornbread

1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal (preferably stone-ground)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups well-shaken buttermilk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
Buckwheat-Honey Butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Put a dry, well-seasoned 9- to 9 1/2-inch cast-iron skillet in middle of oven to heat. Stir together cornmeal, baking soda, and salt, crushing any small bits of baking soda.

Whisk eggs in another bowl until blended and whisk in buttermilk. Remove hot skillet from oven carefully and add butter, swirling gently to coat bottom and sides of skillet. (If butter begins to sizzle and brown around edges, so much the better.)

Whisk hot butter into buttermilk mixture and return skillet to oven. Stir cornmeal into buttermilk mixture just until moistened.

Scrape batter into hot skillet and bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Invert skillet over a platter and cool bread at least 3 minutes. Serve with Buckwheat-Honey Butter. Serves 8.

Buckwheat-Honey Butter
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened unsalted butter
2 tablespoons buckwheat honey (or pure maple syrup)

Combine both ingredients.

Zingers

Post  justmecookin on Mon Oct 13, 2008 12:08 pm

Zingers

Cake:
1 (18.25 ounce) box Duncan Hines devil's food cake mix
1 1/3 cups water
1/2 cup oil
3 large eggs

Filling:
2 teaspoons hot water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups (7 ounce jar) Marshmallow Creme
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Frosting:
1 cup confectioners sugar
1/4 cup Hershey's chocolate syrup
2 tablespoons shortening
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of salt

Prepare the cake batter following the directions on the box. If you use Duncan Hines brand, you will need 1 1/3 cups of water, 1/2 cup of oil and three eggs. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

To prepare the cake pans that will make cakes the size of Zingers, tear off 20 pieces of aluminum foil that are each about 8 inches wide. Fold the foil in half and then in half once more so that you have a rectangular piece of foil. Wrap this piece of foil around a small prescription medicine bottle.

Tuck in the ends and take the bottle out, leaving the foil open at the top. This will form a little pan. Flatten the bottom so that the mini pan stands up straight. Place this into a baking pan and repeat with the remaining pieces of foil.

When you have arranged all of the foil pans in a baking pan, spray the inside of all the pans with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each little pan about halfway with cake batter. Bake cakes for 15-17 minutes or until a wooden pick stuck in the center comes out clean. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely.

To make the filling, combine the hot water with the salt in a small bowl and stir until the salt is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.

Combine the Marshmallow Creme, shortening, confectioners sugar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy. Add the salt mixture to the bowl and mix.

To make the chocolate frosting, combine all the frosting ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer until smooth.

To assemble your snack cakes first poke three holes with a wooden pick or skewer in the top of a cake and swirl around inside the holes making little caverns for your filling.

Use a pastry bag with a small tip to squeeze some filling into each hole. Be careful not to overfill, or your cake will burst open.

Once the cake is filled, use a butter knife to spread frosting on top of the cake over the holes. Drag a fork lengthwise over the frosting making groves. Makes 20 snack cakes.
