Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Rating: 5 stars 1378
Man, when your guests bite into these at the Memorial Day cookout, they'll savor meat so tender and juicy that it slides right off the bone and gets you the respect you deserve! I have found that the major restaurant chains who make this awesome dish pre-cook their ribs SLOWLY before the quick grilling process.

Arkansas Sin

Yummy cream cheese, Cheddar and ham spread! Great for a gathering! If you like it spicier, add another jalapeno pepper.

Catfish fillets are seasoned with honey mustard and onion, then baked until golden brown in this easy main dish.

Old Fashioned Ozarks Meatloaf

Rating: 4 stars 18
This is the best meatloaf of them all! This is made with love and lots of Ozarks flair! Use fresh-ground meat, fresh eggs and homemade breadcrumbs for the best flavor.

Arkansas Green Beans

Rating: 4.5 stars 432
My family would drink the sauce to this green bean dish, if I would let them! Your family will never look at Green Beans the same again. These beans are sweet and savory and smell fabulous in the oven.

Maple Glazed Ribs

Rating: 4.5 stars 214
Basted with a savory sweet sauce, these ribs are definitely finger-licking good!

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Rating: 4.5 stars 259
This is the same recipe my mother's side of the family has been making for years, with my own special touch. Serve it with all of the fixin's. It goes great with cornbread, fried potatoes and fried cabbage.

Buttermilk Pie III

This was given to me by a 94-year-old lady in Arkansas and she said she had been making it all her life.

Ozarks Potato Salad

My momma always made this for those hot summer days we would all go to the creek or floating on the many creeks we have around here.

Ground Beef and Cabbage

Rating: 4.5 stars 320
My mother was a country cook, plain and simple. But as I have traveled and worked and experienced foods from around the world, I look back and realize that many of the dishes she prepared, while simple, were perfect for that moment. Sometimes we have to put emotion and love in a dish to make it extra-special. The dish I am going to give you today is one like that. Simple and easy, yet full of love and goodness. My mother used to serve this with corn on the cob and cornbread. Very inexpensive and very good as well. Enjoy an Ozark memory...

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs
Rating: Unrated 303
These ribs will have the smoky flavor without all the grilling time. It takes just 30 minutes on the grill to give the ribs that smoky flavor Southerners expect. You can use this recipe for spare ribs too, just bake for 15 minutes longer.

Baked BBQ Fried Chicken
Rating: 4.5 stars 127

This is a wonderful Southern treat in which everyone will enjoy! Remember, you can also eat the chicken without the BBQ sauce as well.
