Spicy Cumin Rub BBQ Ribs

These Spicy Cumin BBQ Ribs are the bomb! I saw them on Kelsey’s Essential’s and decided to try them because it was the middle of the winter and I didn’t feel like dealing with outdoor grilling. Kelsey lives in NYC and does all of her grill recipes indoors – and she does an awesome job. I don’t think I’ve ever tried one of her recipes that wasn’t a success. She started out on one…

I just kept adding and tweaking until I finally nailed it. What’s funny is that once…

Bill’s Beef Tenderloin

Many moons ago when the girls were growing up, I formed a dinner club in my neighborhood with a F.U.N. group of couples so that we could all get together once a month for a great meal.
