The temptation to buy a new cookbook is nigh irresistable sometimes.

You would think that a couple who thinks they have copious cookbooks would not have any issues finding a good recipe for a new dish. Or, at least, a dish that we don’t have a lot of experience with.

All we wanted was a recipe for how to best grill ribs. How to Cook Everything had some rib recipes, but nothing about grilling (that man’s into oven-roasting, apparently). Joy of Cooking has something (and, in the end, we’re following that recipe that didn’t seem like much of a recipe). Beyond that, though, our books utterly failed us.
