Barbecue Spice Rub

Barbecue Spice Rub

I’m long overdue to share my favorite Barbecue Spice Rub with you. It’s salty, peppery, and slightly sweet. If you’re vinegar-averse, this is for you!! I’ve loved it ever since I first made it 8 years ago, when I started this blog with my 365…

Spicy Pork with Asparagus

Making and enjoying this recipe for Spicy Pork with Asparagus is directly related to our spring cleaning efforts. Recently Alex and I have gone through much of our stuff to try to downsize. One day, eventually, we will buy a house, and we had might…

Hot Tamales!

Hot Tamales!

I grew up eating tamales from a can. We would usually top them with chili. [They’re a little bland on their own.] Tamales were one of my favorite foods as a kid, but I went a long time without eating them. [This post contains affiliate…

Caramel Pork

Caramel Pork

Tonight for dinner I made Caramel Pork. This meal was quick, easy, and delicious, so I wanted to be sure to write about it while it was still fresh in my mind. Before I roasted a pork loin yesterday, I cubed about a pound of…

Meals, meals, and more meals

Although I’m lumping these several recipes together in this post, I didn’t actually make them together. I just realized that I hadn’t blogged about any recipes since last weekend, and I want to get a couple more out there while I’m thinking about it. I…
