Summer Eats: Kansas City Barbecue Ribs

Summer is in full bloom. The kids are finally out of school, the weather is hot, and the pool is open. So it isn’t surprising that all of that fantastic summer barbecue food is out on the shelves at the grocery store and begging to be brought home and grilled. We love summer barbecues. Ribs are a HUGE favorite in our house. My husband makes them several times during the summer season. I love to have them with lots of sauce. So I love to bast them after they are grilled, and we even keep extra sauce on hand for eating. But, we love trying new recipes. So of course when I saw this recipe for Kansas City Barbecue Ribs I knew we had to try it.

What You Will Need:

 

What You Will Do:

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Transfer ribs to grill.

Ribs are a great entree for summer barbecues and potlucks, so enjoy them all summer long with friends or at home with family. 

Summer Goodies: Summer Eats

Summer means a lot of simple yet super meals. We love to cook out in the summer, which means a lot of chicken, and a lot of beef. So the recipes can get pretty boring and bland after a while. So I love finding new and different ways to fix chicken and beef.

This fun recipe from Carlsbad Cravings creator Jen is a fabulous summer meal. It is sweet and savory all in one. Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken is so easy to make and will impress just a bout everyone in the house. It has quickly become a favorite amongst my kiddos. We make it out on the grill, but it can be made on the stove top as well. Thank you to Carlsbad Cravings for creating such a fun and simple summer meal.

So far we have paired this fun dish with grilled potatoes, pasta salad, grilled veggies, homemade french fries, and even rice. It is one of those fun dishes that really does go well with just about everything. We love to cook a lot of it at once because we can use it again during the week, or freeze it and use it later. I have done this and shredded the chicken and put it over rice for an easy meal that travels with us to swim lessons and swim team meets. Check out Carlsbad Cravings now for some awesome eats, and be sure to try this fabulous recipe soon!
