PW Ribs and Fun Stuff in the Mail

I saw these ribs on PW's site a while back and wanted to give them a try. It was a bit sacrilegious as hubby does a wonderful marinade for ribs which I've chronicled here, that pretty much needs no improvement.
But I'm all about variety, people.
These ribs were tasty, make no mistake. I really liked the rub, it was sweet and a little spicy at the same time. But over all, I'd say I like hubby's ribs better. They have a deeper, tangy flavor. And they're easier...since he makes them :)
A nice surprise arrived in my mailbox from the folks at Country Bob's. It's a beautiful cookbook, chock full o' recipes mostly employing the different sauces and seasonings made by Country Bob's (except for a dessert section that thankfully leaves those out..hehe)
There are a few nice, full color pictures of the yumminess in store, and scattered throughout are some encouraging scriptures .
I'm especially looking forward to trying the 30 minute chili mac! I don't think they sell Country Bob's out here in my vicinity, but hopefully someday.
And last week as part of Foodbuzz's tastemaker program I received two varieties of Nature's Pride whole wheat bread to sample.
I really enjoyed this bread, it's full of little nooks and crannies for your jam to nestle itself into, and it's got a nice rustic feel with little bits of whole wheat throughout it.

Awesome- a cookbook and carbs. How can that get any better?

I've never made ribs, but now I'm wanting to give your husband's recipe a try! If only I can get mine to make them. Yeah right.

p.s. Thanks so much for stopping by last week on my SITS feature day!

Havent tried PWs ribs yet, yours look delish, her french breakfast puffs are fantastic, as are her orange muffins.

Nice cookbook, a girl can never have too many.

I saw these ribs on PW's blog, but I'm with you...we all have our favorite rib recipes. These do look good, though. Excellent execution. I'll have to try your hubby's ribs next time.
