Love on a Plate – Riblets with a Twist

Source: Brownie Sims, The Final Sauce

Recipe Type:

The Sims Girls, Brownie and Princess Sims, grew up surrounded by good food and even better family. Like many households, The Sims Girls remember the kitchen as the foundation of the family and cooking was a tradition passed down from the matriarchs. But one thing was special to them, and that was Aunt Marion’s secret barbecue sauce. Growing up, the sisters watched Aunt Marion make pots full of her famous barbeque sauce, stirring it with a big wooden spoon for hours. At family gatherings, the countertops were lined with mason jars in anticipation of leftover sauce. One day, Brownie decided to try to recreate the sauce on her own. Although Brownie recreated the recipe in 2014, The Final Sauce wasn’t perfected until Princess packed up her bags, drove 3,000 miles, and joined her sister in the kitchen. By combining Brownie’s creativity and Princess’ business savvy, the Sims Girls bring love and laughter to every batch of sauce.
