BBQ Pork Spare Ribs and a little baking...

I found this recipe on cooks.com and have made it before. It is always a winner.

BBQ Pork Spare Ribs
2 lb. pork spare ribs
1 onion

Sauce:
1 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 c. water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
1/3 c. ketchup

Place spareribs (meat side down) in roasting pan. Cover meat with thinly sliced onion. Pour sauce over meat. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until done. Last 10 minutes of cooking you can remove cover to "crunch up" the top slightly.

The recipe gives a variation on the cooking method by saying you can gently boil ribs 1/2 hour, then roast as above for 1 hour. But that would require dirtying another pan...

So I wanted to make some bread today. They are predicting a "blizzard" for tomorrow. On Sundays we have egg and cheese sandwiches from a local restaurant. I decided to make rolls just in case we are actually snowed in (I think that has happened only once in my life... 1978). Anyway, I made the same recipe I used to make the rolls for the sausage and peppers last week.
Next I wanted to make some bread for lunch this week. I found this recipe in back in January on Smitten Kitchen. Light Wheat Bread is a bread that I made quite often last year. It is a perfect sandwich bread.
Being a few days before Christmas I wanted to make a sweet bread. I happened to have almond paste so I pulled out a recipe that I downloaded a while back. Rumanian Almond Braid. The date on the print out is 12/21/97! I revisited the site today and found more recipes!Snow is starting to fall...

All of your bread looks fabulous! I'm curious to hear about the snowfall in NY. It looks like you all had quite a lot of snow come your way!

Great day in the kitchen!

I hope the snowfall was not too bad....I love watching the snow falls... but I hate it when I need to walk outside right after with inches of snow on the ground
