    These ribs are so yummy and… They were so easy! I saw them in Bon Appetit Magazine in my July 2012 issue and was reminded of my Grandma’s recipe for how she used to make BBQ ribs..in the oven.  She used to lay them inside of tin foil, top them with sliced onions and lemons…

    At any given time, my husband could show up at our house with just-caught catfish.  Or, our freezer in the garage could have an entire shelf dedicated to frozen fish he’s pulled in from one of our Oklahoma lakes. One night this summer, early on before the water all dried up, We cut up a…
