Chinese Braised Pork Spare Ribs

You guys i’m excited.

Why you ask? Ok, this may be kind of stupid but guess what?

finally got some of my pictures onto foodgawker!


Feel free to laugh at me now. I know tons of people get their photos published on foodgawker but i’d been trying for a while and everytime there was always something wrong with them.

There isn’t enough room around the plate.” “The lighting is off.” “You’re just not good enough a food photographer.” 

Ok, maybe they didn’t say the last one, but seriously it’s hard. But finally, finally I got now one but 3 published on foodgawker so far! Woot, go me!

It’s a foodblogger milestone.

I know these pictures aren’t nearly good enough to get onto foodgawker and also it’s driving me crazy how the pictures get smooshed when I upload them onto this blog… I’m not sure how to fix it yet, but hey I got something up there and while these pictures may not be the greatest, this recipe is great!

Although it’s the hottest part of the summer right now and a lot of you don’t even want to think about turning your oven on, I really urge you to give these babies a try. Seriously, what’s better than pork ribs?
