Oven Roasted Grilled Baby Back Ribs

These fall off the bone baby back ribs will make it seem like you spent days prepping them. A simple homemade spice rub and two hours in the oven are all they require.

Rolo Chocolate Chip Cookies

What summer BBQ would be complete with a delicious pile of cookies? Make this cookie dough with Rolos, browned butter and chocolate chips (WHAT!!) days in advance and toss them in the oven as everyone is sitting down to eat and serve them warm. Or make the cookies the day before and serve at room temp. Either way, everyone will be begging for the recipe!
