A dab of flour on noses, oops! a little juice spilled. Cooking with kids, what a delightful mess and such fun, say paper towel companies.
More like, splat! there went a dozen eggs. No, you can’t eat raw bacon. How did spaghetti sauce wind up on the ceiling?
So, cooking with kids. Delightful and fun? Yes. A mess? Definitely! Continue reading

I always get excited about grilling as soon as the weather gets above freezing after a long winter. It’s not exactly grilling weather, but I’m ready anyway! This rib recipe is perfect for that kind of weather. Most of the cooking actually happens in the oven to make the ribs really tender. Then they are finished on a hot grill with a tangy honey-lime glaze to create a tasty crust on the tender ribs.
This is also a great make-ahead recipe. You can marinate and pre-cook the ribs well in advance, and then just throw on the grill for 20 minutes when you’re ready to serve dinner. There’s a significant amount of time involved in making really good ribs, but most of it is inactive time so it’s easy to execute with little ones running around. If you’re serving to your kids you may want to omit the jalapenos from the glaze for a little less spice.
My Honey-Garlic Glazed Ribs are the perfect reason to break out the grill this season!
