BEST Ribs EVER :)

Cooking Tip

The Key to Great Ribs -

Great ribs are made by applying multiple layers of flavor. Use a rub or marinade to apply the base layer. Swab on a mop sauce to apply a second layer of flavor and keep the ribs moist during cooking. Apply the barbecue sauce at the end as a laquer or glaze. (For even more flavor, sear it onto the meat directly over a hot fire.) And of course, the wood smoke provides the most important flavor of all.

Grilling Season is HERE!

For those of us who love to entertain, are there four more beautiful words in the English language? Actually, yes: Our weekend is free! Invite friends over, fire up the grill, and throw the easiest kind of party. People love to gather around the grill, so you can chat while you cook.

The most fun finger food? Grilled Ribs. The best thing about this quintessential summer dish (besides the fact that it calls for a complete abandonment of all manners) is that the ribs take only a few minutes to finish on the grill. Most of the cooking happens in the oven at a low temperature - until the meat is falling off the bone - hours before guests arrive. Slather on the sweet-spicy-tangy sauce at the end. Offer more sauce (and wet naps) at the table.

Grilled Sesame Chicken Skewers

Everything tastes better when it's cooked on the grill! Just knowing there's an outdoor feast ahead makes guests arrive with a hearty appetite and the assurance that there will be a good time. Natives of Texas, South Carolina, Alabama, and Kansas City have known all along about the nuances of barbecue. And those of us who live in the North have come a long way from the once-a-year Fourth of July fete when we ate chicken, burgers, and ribs that all tasted the same - charred with a sweet and spicy sauce on top. Today, we want the great flavor of grilled food flavored by the brush of an herb, the smoke of fruitwood, a distinctive marinade, or a savory salsa. And each spring it seems we send our kitchen ovens into an earlier retirement as we get impatient for the taste of grilled whole chicken, giant shrimp in the shell, mussels, game, and every garden vegetable imaginable.

Memorial Day Weekend - The Unofficial Start to SUMMER!

The Memorial Day weekend is usually an active one - not warm enough for sunbathing on the beach, but a great time for friendly competition among friends. Before a lavish afternoon picnic, structure a morning of individual or team events, with some guests acting as umpires, judges, and referees.

The more the merrier, as you strive for the gold with tennis, three-legged races, softball, touch football, soccer, croquet, volleyball, badminton, miniature golf, Frisbee tossing, and broad jumping. Keep score, provide lots of cold chicken and hot dogs, and stage an awards celebration!

Summer Paella Salad

Summer Paella Salad is great for parties because it's dinner in one dish! But instead of a hot dinner, this is a cold version with similar ingredients - saffron rice, chicken, shrimp, mussels, and lots of spicy sausage. It can also be prepared ahead completely, cover and refrigerate it for up to 3 days. Making it a stress-free dish to serve at a Memorial Weekend party!

Don't forget... the Farmer's Market can make your party planning a lot easier! Check out our Farmer's Market Party Trays and our Deli Counter for a wide assortment of prepared food items ready to take with you or to order in advance!

"Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women ot the Armed Services make to defend our way of life."
