You only think you can’t cook.

These ribs are made in your oven, so no need to wait for nice weather. The sweetness plus just the right amount of spice makes for a perfect combination. While these ribs cook, your house will smell so good you'll be drooling by the time they're ready. The secret ingredient is baby food. Seriously. (Don't knock it 'til you try it.)


Brown ribs quickly in hot oil. Mix remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Put ribs in baking dish and cover well in sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
