I guess we have no choice, right? So, on that note, let’s take a look at the top five posts here on the blog for the *sniff sniff* month of June!

EASY Crock Pot BBQ Ribs – with Stubb’s BBQ Sauces! GIVEAWAY INCLUDED!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Stubb’s DID provide me with these products to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

The 4th of July is practically upon us! (Can you believe that?!) The year is flying by, y’all!

When I think of the 4th of July, I think of BBQ. I mean, doesn’t everyone?! In fact, I think of BBQ when I think of most summer gatherings! Cookouts, pool parties, picnics…BBQ. And when it comes to BBQ, there’s no brand I love more than Stubb’s.

STUBB'S LEGENDARY BAR-B-Q LOGO

BBQ is BBQ, you might say. You’ve had one kind of sauce, you’ve had them all! NOPE! Not true! You know why?

Stubb’s BBQ products are all-natural, gluten-free and non GMO. Plus, their sauces don’t use any of that nasty high-fructose corn syrup! They average out at about 20 calories and 110 milligrams of sodium per tablespoon. And trust me, you don’t miss all the “junk”. These products, from their sauces, to their marinades to their rubs, lack nothing when it comes to flavor!

So I decided to do something a bit different this year…

My hubby LOVES BBQ, and he’s a fan of ribs, too! He had just made mention to me not long ago that I had never made him any ribs, and I mentioned back to him that he had never grilled ME any ribs! HA! We laughed and left it at that, because we live in Florida, and let me tell you…IT’S WAY TOO HOT FOR GRILLING RIGHT NOW! 

Hence the crock pot idea. Of course!

I picked up two flavors of the yummy Stubb’s BBQ sauces and about 5 pounds of ribs (boneless this time).

On the Road in May

May The Road to Domestication

Less than 7 months until Christmas, y’all.

I’m sorry – I couldn’t resist.

Can you believe that today is JUNE 1?! (It’s also the beginning of hurricane season, which is a big deal for us in Florida. And since the painters literally finished painting the outside of our house on Friday, I’m not sure whether we’re totally smart – since everything is nicely sealed now – or totally gonna have an insurance claim on our hands – and have to pay for new paint all over again! I guess we’ll find out…)

Anyway…today is the day we find out the top five posts here on the blog for the month of May! Let’s see…

Stubbs Review & GIVEAWAY!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Stubb’s DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

I’m a huge fan of most anything Stubb’s. Ever since I discovered that their products have no HFCS, no gluten, and are also free of MSG, I’ve been a loyal customer! But probably my FAVORITE thing about Stubb’s is their awesome variety! Marinades, sauces, rubs and cookin’ sauces, you really can’t go wrong, and you absolutely could eat for weeks using just their products and still not be bored!

I also love the story of how Stubb’s became the company it is today. It started with Stubb, a mess sergeant in the United States Army, moved on to open a restaurant, and it only gets better from there! If you want to know the whole tale, CLICK HERE! (It’s a good one!)

Today, I decided to use one of their marinades! I had used their steak marinade before, but I decided it was time to test out their chicken option:

Stubb's BBQ Chicken Marinade (Citrus & Onion)

Their chicken flavor is Citrus & Onion, and it smells amazing right out of the jar, first off! Another thing I love, as you can tell from the photo above, is that you can literally SEE how many awesome ingredients are packed into a bottle of Stubb’s! (If you’d like to marinate beef or pork, look for their Soy, Garlic & Red Pepper or Chiles, Lime & Ginger marinades!)

New Product Review – Southern Recipe Pork Rinds

**PLEASE NOTE: While Southern Recipe DID provide me with these products to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.** 

A lovely package arrived on my doorstep the other day. It was a box full of pork rinds.

My husband was almost as excited as I was.

Now, being that we live in Florida, and being that we were both raised in the SOUTH…we know food from the South when we try it!
