Perfect Pork Ribs: How to cook ribs in the oven

Want fork-tender, fall off the bone ribs but you're unable to grill? Let me show you how to cook ribs in the oven the easy way!
  1. Remove ribs from refrigerator at least 30 - 60 minutes before you are ready to cook.
  2. Preheat the oven to 225F.
  3. Flip the ribs so that they are laying meat side down on a cutting board.
  4. Use a sharp knife and slide it under the white membrane on the back of the ribs so that the knife is between the meat and membrane. Cut a hole into the membrane.
  5. Use your fingers to slide under the membrane and pull it away from the meat. If it is hard to hold onto, use a paper towel for extra grip. Remove all of the outer membrane and discard.
  6. Flip the ribs so that they are now meat side up. Pat them dry.
  7. Press the dry rub onto the ribs so that they are evenly coated.
  8. Cut the rack of ribs into thirds.
  9. On a large piece of foil, place the ribs meat side up in the middle. Fold over 3 sides of the foil to create a pocket: pour the apple juice into this pocket and then fold over and seal the 4th side.
  10. Tightly wrap the ribs again in a 2nd layer of foil and place on a baking tray.
  11. Cook for 4 - 4½ hours. The ribs are ready when you can pierce them easily with a fork.
  12. Remove the ribs from the oven and preheat the broiler.
  13. Unwrap the ribs and place them on a baking tray, meat side up. Use a BBQ mop to baste the ribs with BBQ sauce.
  14. Place the ribs under the broiler and broil until the BBQ sauce sauce is bubbling and browning. Watch carefully so that they do not burn - the more sugar there is in the BBQ sauce, the quicker that will happen.
  15. Remove from the broiler and serve.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
