In a gallon zip bag, combine 3 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil, 2 heaping tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp blackening seasoning, 1/2 tsp mustard powder. Shake/mix well, add 2 lbs boneless pork ribs, shake to coat and tuck the bag in the fridge to marinate a spell. This was a big hit the first time around.

Business Insider: How to keep a turkey from being dry In the last couple days I tried to coax an anti-vaxxer FB friend (probably met through Castle Age, doubt she still plays but I digress) to at least peek out of her ideological prison, and was met with hostility. No, the former VP of Pfizer has not come forth to decry Gardasil as "deadly". A couple of the sites promoting this fiction are apparently recognized and trusted by anti-vaxxers (NaturalNews, e.g.), but most of the top Google results are paten... (...more)
