Spicy Korean-Style Beef Back Ribs

This dish was an experiment; it was a successful experiment. Yet again, I was looking for ways to use some habanero peppers and I decided to try it out in some Korean-inspired cooking.

Short ribs are stupidly expensive (in general but even more so at my local store) so I decided to buy a pack of beef back ribs, which were not only cheaper but were also on sale, and make a kalbi jjim-inspired dish. Of course the twist was that it would be spicy and also cooked in the oven, instead of on the stovetop, since beef back ribs do a bit better in ambient heat, as opposed to simmering in a liquid (at least from my limited experience working with them).
Ingredients [serves 4]:
1 rack beef back ribs
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ apple
¼ onion
1 red habanero pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger
¼ cup canola oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 sweet potato, chopped

What I Ate: Crispy Roasted Chicken

You might be over poultry after Thanksgiving weekend, but I thought I would quickly share this pretty awesome chicken I made a couple of weeks ago. I had bought thighs with the intention of making salsa chicken but realized I'd bought bone-in thighs and therefore had to change plans.

I ended up grabbing some rosemary out of the garden (it's still doing remarkably well) and whipped up this all-American dinner.
I don't have a recipe page for this one - it's just too easy to require it and that's why I went with a 'What I Ate' style - but I'll do my best to outline the instructions throughout so you too can whip up this delicious weeknight dinner.

Thanksgiving Recap 2016

Thanksgiving was great this year. We had a modest party of nine with the perfect amount of food. (Perfect amount to us means that there's enough leftovers to make turkey soup and turkey salad sandwiches).
Keeping with tradition, I got caught up in the food and entertaining and didn't take the exact photos I wanted but I have enough to give you a flavor of our festivities.
