BBQ ribs & slaw are the quintessential “Dad” dinner! But most BBQ ribs get cooked entirely on the grill and you need to call the fire department before they’re even done. Instead, my Foolproof Ribs with Barbecue Sauce are roasted slowly in the oven until they’re tender and delicious and then quickly grilled for just enough smoky flavor. Served with my classic Vegetable Coleslaw and a few beers and you’ve got a perfect dinner to celebrate all the fathers who love us.
Every great party needs a great soundtrack! Life is starting to feel more normal again and I just feel like dancing. My new playlist, "Ina's Dance Party" is available on Spotify and Apple Music. I hope you love it!
It's almost Memorial Day weekend and I feel like having a party! I'm starting with these Smashed Hamburgers with Caramelized Onions from Modern Comfort Food! OMG they’re so good, and you don't even need to light the grill. For the sides, I'm making Maple Baked Beans and my Vegetable Coleslaw - it doesn't get more classic than that. The coleslaw can be made in advance and the beans simmer away in the oven while you go about your day. And finally, for dessert, I'm thinking Red Berry Shortcakes with Honey Yogurt. I take my flaky shortcakes and pile them high with strawberries, raspberries, and Greek yogurt sweetened with a drizzle of honey. So delicious!! Have a happy and safe holiday weekend!
What mom wouldn’t love a Bacon, Egg & Cheddar Sandwich in bed this Mother’s Day!?? This easy recipe from Modern Comfort Food is mostly made in the microwave so the kids can help, too! Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there!
I’m so excited to start thinking about having my friends for dinner again!!! (Once they’re vaccinated!!) I miss them so much. Since everything around me feels like Spring, I’m thinking about making the Spring Green Spaghetti Carbonara from my new book Modern Comfort Food. I took a delicious - but very rich! - classic pasta dish and added crisp green vegetables like asparagus, peas, and snow peas that add a wonderful freshness to a decadent carbonara. Plus a nice chilled glass of Chablis and I think my guests will be very happy!!
