When both the kids came home from Iraq we had a huge Rib dinner at our house for close family members. So anytime these patriotic holidays roll around I think about cooking Ribs.
Melt like Butta Dry Rub and Black Raspberry Barbecue Sauce are two amazing recipes that will help you celebrate Independence Day like a pro. In this post is a recipe for a Dry Rub which is so good you won't have to use barbecue sauce but I also included a yum yum yummy barbecue sauce recipe. The ribs cook slow so you can do other things like enjoy your company while they are cooking. If you cook them slow like I show you then you will have amazing ribs every time.
For dessert try my Black Raspberry Peekaboo Cake. This cake can be made with your own freshly picked Black Raspberries or for simplicity you can buy pie filling. Our farm has exploded in black raspberries this year so I'm using them in every recipe I can. Other fruits that work well are Blackberries, and Cherries. If you're going to buy pie filling just remember to make sure your pie filling is gluten free.
Have your friends bring the side dishes, light up some sparkles or watch the lightning bugs put on a show and enjoy the day. Reflect on what you love about living in a free country and count your blessings.
Happy 4th of July!
