Recipe for the best ribs ever.

You can imagine my excitement when I discovered Gordon Food Service. I used to pass by it weekly and wonder what the heck was in there. Do yourself a favor and look them up ASAP and see if there is one close to you. I am a fan for life!




As a busy mom who loves to cook and make delicious meals but also needs to stay on budget, I can do it all with Gordon’s Food Service!

If you have a big family or throw parties, this is the place to shop. 

We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful. 



And you see those peanut butter krispies? 
To die for! 
In the frozen section. Thank me later. 



You know our deep love for ribs. 
Chris does them like no other. 
So I thought I’d finally share our recipe. 
All of our items are from Gordon’s Food Service Store. 
(Recipe will be posted below)


Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. 
Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part. 


These sides were delicious. 
That macaroni and cheese is out of this world!


Are you drooling and ready for the recipe yet?


My little foodies and their favorite foods. 



Recipe for the best ribs ever 

This is for a rack of ribs, double the recipe as you add a rack. 

  • Rack of pork loin ribs 
  • 9x 13 dish
  • 2/3 cup of orange juice 
  • 2 Tablespoons of lime juice 
  • Seasoning of choice. (Our favorite is sweet rub of mine)
  • BBQ sauce. (Our favorite is Gordon’s sweet bbq sauce)
Cut the ribs to fit in the dish. Place ribs in the dish and pour orange and lime juice over the meat. 
Coat in seasoning and/or sauce generously. 
Cover with foil. 
Place in oven at 250° for 4 hours or until meat start to fall off the bones. Once it’s done in the oven then transfer to finish off on the grill over medium heat for about 10 min. Add more seansing and/or sauce. 

Enjoy! They are truly the best ribs and quite easy to make!
Pair with your favorite sides.

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
