Braised Beef Short Ribs

I took a break from the La Cucina cookbook today. I actually revisited some older blog posts that I had bookmarked. Tonight's dinner comes from Smitten Kitchen, Braised Beef Short Ribs. There are certain meals that remind me of winter and Short Ribs is one of them. Probably because having the oven on for 3 hours in the summer is not going to happen. This is an easy to prepare dish. The house smelled so good today. Kramer was beside himself trying to get to the ribs. Archie did not seem to notice...

As a side dish I made one of my favorites, Roasted Cauliflower. The last time I had Roasted Cauliflower was when I got it from La Rosticceria. I loved it and I wanted to try to make it myself. I found a recipe which seemed close to what I had from La Rosticceria. It was as good. Yippee! The recipe if from the FoodNetwork.com. We also had mashed potatoes.

Did a bit of baking this weekend. I made Hot Cross Buns. I got the recipe from my sister who got it from our mom. They came out perfect, nice and moist. Hot Cross Buns are the best part of Lent.
