Hickory Bacon
Baby Back Ribs

Have you ever just tasted something so divine and delicious that you just wanted to jump through your screen and shout it out to anyone that would listen. This is that kind of recipe! The meat just falls off the bone, it is so juicy and loaded with Bacon and hickory flavor. The spice used has 0 carbs and 0 calories! such a bonus! Baby Back Ribs loaded and I do mean loaded with tons of flavor. My husband has no teeth (prob more info then you wanted LOL) but he kept telling me he could not eat ribs because of the gristle in them. So, we were looking for this spice my daughter tried, (which they were out of) and ran across this spice called hickory bacon. OMG, it is to die for! Top with Sweet baby rays and you have a meal you would have paid over $50.00 for in a restaurant! Try our Baked bean recipe to go with this and caramelized carrots

Seriously Enjoy this recipe we sure did!
