Blackberry Barbecued Ribs Dinner Menu
Enjoy the best barbecued tender, slow-cooked ribs you have ever eaten! Plus complete your summertime barbecue with these tempting side dishes. Your family and friends will definitely have satisfied tummies!
1st Course – Appetizer:
Cheesy Kale and Bacon Dip
Move over spinach dip – Cheesy Kale and Bacon Dip is the new party dip in town! The cheese and bacon flavors in this dip are sure to win over your party guests and this would especially please a sports watching crowd. Your guests will not even realize that they are also enjoying healthy super-food kale that’s mixed in. I introduced this dip at a couple gatherings to rave reviews and several recipe requests.
2nd Course – Salad:
Smoky Grilled Caesar Salad
Smoky Grilled Caesar Salad is a whole new flavor experience! I first drizzled the romaine with olive oil and sprinkled salt and pepper before grilling. The romaine was so tasty that I could have eaten it all by itself without adding any extra toppings or dressing. When I finally did add the rest of the ingredients, we had one sensational salad with our dinner! Try it out for yourself.
3rd Course – Main Course and Side:
Blackberry Barbecued Ribs
These Blackberry Barbecued Ribs are so good that you will lick your fingers clean! The blackberry sauce is absolutely wonderful. You probably thought that blackberry jam was only for toast!
Asiago and Sage Scalloped Potatoes
This delicious Asiago and Sage Scalloped Potato recipe is my family’s favorite scalloped potato recipe. You will want to make these scalloped potatoes again and again.
4th Course – Dessert:
Peaches and Cream Pie
This is so good and so easy to make! I often use a purchased pie crust when I am in a hurry.

Golden Rules of Food Safety
IF IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT! If you have any question in your mind about the freshness or safety of eating a food product, throw it out. It is better to be safe than sorry!
Picnic Safety Tips
There is nothing more American than the picnic. Picnics can take on many forms, such as the community picnic, friends and neighbors, tailgate parties, or ball games. There is also one sure thing at every picnic-lots of good food. The important point is to have safe and healthy food, not food that can cause food borne illness. Always prepare and store food properly.
Summer Safety Tips
Summer is the time for barbecues and picnics. The biggest party crasher at summer picnic and buffets is food borne bacteria. You can not see them and you can not taste them, but you sure can feel them if illness occurs hours or days later.
