I have done a lot of eating this summer, especially in Lima, but I haven't done a lot of cooking. Between the travel, the park picnics and the unappreciative kids who would prefer plain pasta, it just isn't happening. I had plans over the 4th of July to try some new summer recipes, but between the parades, the parties and the beach, I was too wiped (just like Xavier apparently) But I did, however, manage to get some boys to cook for me!
Peter made great pork spareribs based on a recipe I researched so I feel I can take some credit. And Ryan made frozen coconut limeade with rum from the Smitten Kitchen blog which I follow so I take credit for that too. Kind of a stretch?
Peter had made ribs before many times but they never quite worked out. This recipe calls for using a dry rub, wrapping them in tinfoil and baking them at 250 for 3-4 hours. You then smear them with BBQ sauce and finish them on the grill. They were awesome with the coconut limeade which is like lighter, tart pina colada. Summer heaven!
