Even though eating seasonal foods is important, and I highly recommend it, you can also have some fun in the winter. If having a big fruit salad mid-winter will help you feel better, go ahead and make one with the local grocer's produce bounty! Fresh salads can also help you feel great. Frozen vegetables are a good choice if you'd like out of season treats. Remember to serve veggies with plenty of fat (olive oil on salads and butter on steamed veggies) to help you absorb all nutrients.

Aluminum nonstick inserts are light and tough. They can be used on a stove or in an oven to when sauteeing onions or browning, prior to slow cooker pork ribs cooking. Some ceramic pots can be heated on gas stoves but when heated on electric stoves a diffuser grill is necessary.
The last hour of cooking is a good time to baste with your favorite sauce. This time is meant to enhance the flavor and caramelize a good sauce. Be careful to monitor closely though with sauces high in sugar because they can easily burn. During the cooking process many cooks will use liquids to enhance the flavor and tenderness. Liquids like apple juice, butter, honey, molasses or even alcohol. An interesting combination is to mix half bourbon and half apple juice and use a spray bottle to mist on the smoking ribs during the last hour.
Stop in Porky's bayside sometime for some good southern barbeque, given two sauce-covered thumbs up by Jack and Tony. Think I might have to mosey down to Porky's and review the ribs. Not the Danish baby backs, the real deal BBQ pork ribs. Better get my bib first, this could get messy!
