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?

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. 

Thanks Gordon’s Food Service for being a one stop shop for all of our grocery needs!

Pre-cooking the ribs before they hit the grill not only gives you more control over the cooking temperature, but it can also make for more tender meat. You can oven-bake, boil, or even use the slow cooker for pre-cooking before firing up the grill. Rational iCombi Classic ICC 10-1/1/E is a new heating elements and steam generation technology sets a new standard in low-temperature cooking, meaning even poached fish or delicate desserts can be made with little user intervention.

Family Room DIY makeover

Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it.  All because we put the tv on the wall!  Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover.  Before .  I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown.  I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint.  Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows.  Then it was onto the fireplace.  Before   Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace.  We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures.  And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr

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  Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy 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!  Tag me on Instagram at
