Sangria Honey BBQ Sauce

Daughter got to come out for Labor Day and I promised her some ribs on the grill along with all the normal side dishes including cole slaw, potato salad and corn bread! It is so sweet to have her back into our lives after years of having to avoid us due to a husband that was paranoid of people?; so sad as she is a people person like her mom and he is also very lovable………..

Homemade cole slaw and potato salad...YES!

Homemade cole slaw and potato salad…YES! And don’t forget the Cowboy Cornbread….:-)

You can use this sauce to baste about anything you want to, including pork or chicken or you can also use it as a marinade for them, so here we go…………

Sangria Honey BBQ Sauce
  • 2 cups sangria wine, homemade or store bought (didn't have any homemade unfortunately!)
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¼ mustard, I used Dijon but next time I think I might try some horseradish!
  • 1 tbs minced sweet onion
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • ½ teas lemon zest
  • About 4 pounds of cooked ribs, I used baby backs
  1. Cook or smoke ribs the way you like them!
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes to slightly thicken and sauce is reduced by about half.
  3. Place cooked ribs over medium-high heat on your grill and brush with sauce; turning and basting frequently until heated and done to you desired taste (I like mine a little seared on the outside).
  4. Serve with remaining sauce for dipping...........

These babies melted in our mouth and reminded Kenny of ribs we used to serve in a restaurant where I used to work; he was a happy camper! Daughter Michelle wasn’t too bashful either as she ate her fair share, but I wasn’t keeping tabs………….enjoy!

On another note, I am writing this on 9/11/15, only 14 years after the horrific attacks on our homeland and I remember that day like it was yesterday! Please join me in prayers for the families that lost loved ones on that day and pray that it never happens again in our home, the great United States of America; may she forever stand tall……………

Dipity Do Dah Dilly Dip

Dipity do dah dipity ya dip dip dip dip all day!

Dipity do dah dipity ya…dip dip dip dip all day!

Yadda, yadda, yadda, no recipes lately! Well you see, I was kinda on strike until Husband put my counter tops in to share with you as I was so proud of the work he did and how nice it is to have beautiful, working counter tops again”! ” With the old ones, I was to the point of just cutting veggies or anything else you could imagine, right on top of them without having a care in the world of what I did to them, see? But now I treat them with kit gloves like a child or aka my husband, ha ha! Now after that improvement, Husband is Hell Bent to redo the floors in the dining room and living room, God help me, here we go again! I have to wonder what he has in store for us after that project as he is running out of things to spruce up in our home and no I am not going to be on his to-do list, another ha ha!!!
After the 4th and all the cooking that occurred shortly thereafter, I had so many leftovers that I was obsessed with not throwing anything away and so, I have not been trying much on the new side. This recipe did however intrigue my taste-buds as we have an ample amount of fresh veggies coming into our stores and Kenny and I both love to indulge in dinners that have only veggies even though we are not vegans and so last night was just that! It all started when we had bought some Dill Dip at our local store and I said, how hard can this be? So with that, I found a couple of recipes and came up with this one for us……..

Dipity Do Dah Dilly Dip
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup mayo
  • 2-1/2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 3 tbsp chopped green onions, half tops and half bottoms
  • 1 generous tablespoon of dried dill weed
  • ½ teas fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teas lemon zest
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Fresh veggies
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix well and chill for a few hours to meld the taste.
  2. Serve with fresh veggies or if you're having burgers, it also goes super as a dip for potato chips!


My husband also loves this recipe as a substitute for mayo on his burger with sliced olives, tomatoes and onions,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Oh my! Hope you enjoy as much as we do as it is a must for the summertime heat…………..Don’t forget to like us on Facebook  and Twitter and join our Saturday news letter..up there..at the top.. to keep up with the latest recipes.
