Brown meat and DO NOT drain - add rest of ingredients - simmer in pot for 30 minutes while stirring occasionally (cut down on cayenne pepper if spicy hot is not your thing).
Hey, do this
Make dressing first - Whisk together:
Ok, here we go!
Refrigerate the dressing right now... go do it! Cook 16 oz. of pasta (I recommend CELLENTANI type noodles). Drain but DO NOT rinse. After draining for some 5 minutes, transfer to a large bowl to cool to room temperature. Pasta should be sticky. Now pour the dressing over the pasta and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (overnight is best... trust me). When ready to serve, toss with a heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise, a tablespoon of water and a teaspoon of lemon juice. A teaspoon of sugar at this point doesn't hurt!
1 lb. of ground sausage (Jimmy Dean is fine)
4 cups of milk in total
3 tablespoons (heaping) of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of black pepper (yes... tablespoon)
4 or so splashes of Worcestershire Sauce
Note: Make this for dad on father's day. Heck, make it anytime... it's just that &%#@ing good!!!

Preheat a griddle to about 250 - 275 degrees (or you can cook them on the grill).
Mix by hand until thoroughly blended:
Form into 4 to 5 patties and on the griddle, cook for about 10 to 12 minutes flipping the patties every 2 minutes or so. Check internal temperature for safety - 165 degrees F.

Rub the ribs well with a nice rub mix.
Place in slow cooker and pour 2 liters of Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper down the sides so as not to wash off the rub mix.
Cook on low for about 6 hours.
Put ribs on a baking sheet and baste with BBQ sauce - both sides.
Put under oven broiler for a few minutes each side. Keep an eye out so they DO NOT burn!
This is soooo easy!
Using a chopper, chop an entire package of Oreo cookies (the entire cookie... yes, that means the cream center too) into fine crumbs. Place in a large bowl and add one softened package (8 oz) of cream cheese. Mix first by hand and then with a hand mixer until very well combined.
Roll mixture into balls and place on a parchment lined sheet. Place in freezer for about an hour.
Melt about 2 cups of white chocolate in a medium sized bowl. Drop the Oreo ball into the white chocolate and coat it. Place back on the parchment lined sheet and immediately sprinkle with Oreo dust or colored sugar crystals as you do each one (they set and firm too fast to do this after coating all balls)
