Fool-proof BBQ Ribs/Chicken

The weather definitely crisps up these days in San Francisco. I was out and about doing chores and realized that a tank and a hoodie are not going to keep me warm enough anymore. For some reason, when I was walking on the street, someone's waft of perfume instantly reminded me a holidays' coming.  Not sure if it is an ordinary scent that I sniffed all the time when walking by cosmetics counter in the mall. ha~

Holidays, hum,... I know some friends are doing their Christmas shopping already. Well, yes, you hear me right: Christmas. I think I might start looking just to get a head start. Other than gifts preparation, holiday's cooking is another big task. Now is definitely the time to horn my holiday cooking skills. 


Today I am going to share the easiest recipe I found online with my personal twist to make the perfect succulent BBQ Garlic chili Ribs and BBQ honey chicken drumlets and wings with you.

Ingredients:
  • 1 medium sliced onions
  • 1 cup of ketchup  
  • 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar 
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar 
  • 1 lb. pork spareribs ( You can make up to 4 lbs and ust double the amount of ingredients listed above.) 
  • Half bottle of Garlic-chili BBQ sauce ( store bought at Wholefoodsmarket ) and I also used William Sonoma's peach Jalapeño BBQ sauce in another batch.

Directions

  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F 
  2. In a large bowl, combine onions, ketchup, red wine vinegar, brown sugar and split ribs down to the center between the bones. 
  3. Heat a large lightly oiled willet over medium-high heat. I brown my ribs directly in the Le Cruset. 
  4. Directly place the oven proof pan ( in my case I just stick in my Le Cruset pot). Or if you need to transfer to another pan or casserole dish, make sure you pour half the sauce over ribs. Reserve the reminder. 
  5. Bake ribs in preheated oven for 1 hours first. Take out, and pour the rest of the sauce in. Baste and turn meat every twenty to 30 mins. You can cover the pan with foil but I only do so when I see the browning too quickly and want to slow down the process. After 2 hours, pour half bottle of Garlic-chili BBQ sauce or whatever flavor you like into the pan. Baste and turn the meat, cook for another 30 mins. The total cooking time is 2 1/2 hours to 3 hours depends on your oven/meat quantity.

Brown the ribs over the stove top first 


For the chicken, I simply drizzle grape-seed oils over chicken drumplets and wings, sprinkles some black pepper before I pop them into oven uncovered. After 30 mins, pull out and pour your favorite BBQ sauce, sprinkles 1 TBSB extra brown sugar and bake for another 10 mins. You can adjust the amount of sauce according to the quantity of chicken you wish to make. As long as all the pieces are covered with sauce and you baste them again for about 10-20 mins, I guaranteed you will have a flavorful BBQ chicken no matter what!! ( There are tips of cutting the wing tips off...... well, for me, I don't want to get into that much work. But maybe when you are doing larger batches, you just make sure every piece was soaked evenly in the sauce.)

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
