A couple of weekend's ago, we went to Darren's dad's for a wonderful BBQ. I had the best ribs, they were smoked and cooked for hours and hours! And all the side dishes were so simple yet tasty, from corn salad, to baked beans, cucumbers in a vinaigrette, to stuffed peppers, a divine mac and cheese, and these awesome yellow & blue corn muffins!

In other news, I will be taking a wee vacation to Burning Man Aug.31-Sept.8th, so there will be no entries during that time.

Happy Cooking, as Jacques P├ępin would say!
