Cooking with the Kids #1 - Honey Roasted Spare Ribs & Fried Rice


This is a FAB little recipe that our Big Lad Jack picked out. He's recently discovered ribs from our local Chinese take-away and the thought of making his own blew his mind! I was surprised to find it in a kids recipe book because I always imagined ribs to be a tricky thing to cook. I was very wrong!
