Ribs with a Kick Recipe

Favorite Barbecued Chicken
What better place to find a fantastic barbecue sauce than Texas, and that's where this one is from—it's my father-in-law's own recipe. We've served it at many family reunions and think it's the best!
—Bobbie Morgan, Woodstock, Georgia

Ribs with a Kick
The meat just falls off the bones of these slowly grilled spareribs. My mom created the delicious sauce, tweaking it until it suited my dad's taste to a T. I have to agree with him that these ribs are the best I've ever had.
—Desiree Whittaker, Rathdrum, Idaho

Grilled Pizza Sandwiches
My father-in-law loves pizza toppings and grilled cheese sandwiches, so my mother-in-law and I came up with this recipe that combines the two. These are great with ranch dressing, too.
—Stacie Simpson, Florence, Texas

Grilled Veggie Wraps
I love this vegetable marinade, but the key to this recipe's success is the three-cheese spread. My father is a meat-and-potatoes eater, but the grilled wraps passed his test!
—Britani Sepanski, Indianapolis, Indiana

Chocolate Croissants
From time to time, we have stuffed French toast made from rich buttery brioche. One Father's Day when I wanted to make it for my husband, the store was out of brioche, so I tried croissants instead. They turned out to be even simpler to use.
—Phyllis Johnston, Fayetteville, Tennessee

Peanut Butter Cookies
In the mood for homemade cookies? These crisp, chewy treats are a delicious way to show someone you care. The original treasured recipe is the only one my grandmother wrote down. Freeze any remaining cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw cookies at room temperature before serving.
—Janet Hall, Clinton, Wisconsin
