Could it have been the coriander sauce below? This is the only Canarian ribs recipe that I can find.

 (Potatoes with corncobs and pork ribs)

 2 kgs (4.4 lbs) potatoes
 1 kg (2.2 lbs) salted pork ribs
 4 or 5 tender corncobs

 Soak the ribs overnight in cold water.   Drain and cut the ribs into
several portions and place in a saucepan with  fresh water. Add the sliced
corncobs (large chunks, normally cut each one  into three). Bring to the
boil and cook until tender. Add the peeled  potatoes, cutting the large ones
in half. When the potatoes are boiled,  drain off the stock and place the
food on a serving dish. Serve with MOJO VERDE (coriander sauce), crusty
bread and a good local wine.

 Mojo Verde

 1 head of garlic
 1/2 hot red or green pepper
 1 bunch of fresh coriander
 cumin seeds

 Lightly roast a teaspoon of cumin and pound in a mortar. Add the chopped
garlic, finely chopped coriander, seeded and chopped pepper and a little
salt, blending these ingredients thoroughly. Pour in half a cup of oil,
vinegar to taste, a little cold water and mix well.

I had a Chinese Bread I don't remember where it was dough, with sesame seeds
and like brown sugar, honey or butter. I am not sure how the dough was
cooked but it looked raw but it was done. I am trying to find a reciepe of
what exactly is in it if its all that less or more and how to make. Can you
please help.

Thanks Brenna

Hello Brenna,

The below recipe is the only one I could find.


Shao Ping (sesame buns)

1 cup sesame seeds
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
Vegetable oil for frying

Spread sesame seeds on tray or baking sheet and set aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine salt, sugar, flour and baking powder.
Gradually add water, stirring with wooden spoon to make a smooth dough. Mix
in sesame oil.
Pour dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes. Shape
kneaded dough into a long roll about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Cut into 1
1/2-inch sections, pat each piece into a little ball, and flatten to about
1/2-inch thick. Moisten with a little water and press wet side into sesame
seeds. Coat thoroughly.
Fry cakes, seed side up, in a lightly greased skillet over medium heat for
about 5 minutes but do not let them burn.
Arrange fried cakes seed side up on a baking sheet and bake under preheated
broiler for about 4-5 minutes. They are done when the sesame seeds begin to
turn brown and smell fragrant. Serve hot.

Subject: Question???

What is the difference with email in a TEXT format or email in a HTML
format? Can you explain this to me & why should I use one over the other?
Thanks Chuck 

Hi Chuck,

You know those e-mails that you get that have fancy graphics and pictures in them? Not the ones that just link to a website, but the ones that have graphics and fancy formatting in the e-mail itself? Those are HTML format e-mails. The ones that are just plain text, like this one, are TEXT format.

If you want to send or recive the fancy kind, then you should use html format and have "receive HTML" turned ON in your e-mail program.

If it makes no difference to you, then turn off HTML formatting in your e-mail program. It's possible for computer viruses to spread by HTML e-mail, even with no attachment to the e-mail.
