Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Rating: Unrated
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.

Old Fashioned Ozarks Meatloaf

Rating: Unrated
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: Unrated
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.

Basted with a savory sweet sauce, these ribs are definitely finger-licking good!

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

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.

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.

Kickin' Collard Greens

Rating: Unrated
If you like greens you will love this recipe. The bacon and onions give them a wonderful flavor. Add more red pepper for a little more spice.

Ground Beef and Cabbage

Rating: Unrated
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...
