Home Cooking: Ribs, cornbread, salsa.

More home cooking.  Cornbread, bbq pork spare ribs, corn salsa and some salad greens.

Cornbread recipe, for those interested:

3/4 c. yellow cornmeal
2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. sugar (This is apparently how it is done. It is too sweet for me, I knock it down to 1/3 cup)
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. buttermilk
3/4 c. (1 1/2 sticks) butter, melted (a stick is a USian term for 125gm)
3 eggs, beaten

In a large bowl measure cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and
salt. Blend well. Add buttermilk and butter slowly. Pour in eggs. Stir
only enough to blend the mixture thoroughly. Pour into 9 x 9 x 2,
baking pan (greased) and level with a spoon or spatula.

Bake in 400 degree preheated oven until the bread tests done when
pierced with a metal skewer, wooden toothpick, or the blade of a
knife. If it comes out clean and dry, the corn bread is done. Cut into

You can mix it up by making them in muffin trays, so they cook faster and are easier to separate.  Add jalapenos while cooking, or some cheese, if you want more flavour.
