Baby-Back Ribs With Homemade BBQ Sauce

"I know there are many passiote rib connoisseurs who are horrified by people who boil their ribs before broiling or grilling them, but it's a quick and easy way to make them super tender and I can't tell the difference... These are SO easy and good, you'll wonder why you ever paid so much for ribs at a restaraunt. I often use country-style ribs instead of baby back."

<p>I never realized how easy it is to create restaraunt-quality dishes at home until I lived with my grandparents over one of my summer breaks from college. As soon as I got my first apartment (a year&nbsp;or so&nbsp;later), I started cooking and have been addicted ever since! I like to challenge myself with new ingredients and techniques. I'm big on research, and will spend hours learning the how to's of new ideas ahead of time, because there's nothing more depressing than making a disappointing meal! <br /><br />I've taken it upon myself to be in charge of Thanksgiving dinner for the past 5 years (I'm 27 now)...I enjoy the challenge, and think I put together a pretty darn good spread! :) <br /><br />My fiance and I both LOVE to eat good food, but although we won't deny ourselves some wings and a beer now and again, we try to eat pretty healthfully on a day-to-day basis.</p>
