Ribs for Kids

"This is one of my standby recipes," reports Valorie Walker of Bradley, South Carolina. "I always have wieners on hand, so it's easy to dress them up with a tangy homemade barbecue sauce to create these 'ribs' that youngsters love. They're delicious served over rice, and leftovers reheat well," she adds.
