The best part of eating healthy the majority of the time means that when you do decide to splurge you generally have a lot less guilt. You’ll also find yourself returning to the same indulgent, greasy, stick to your inside’s foods, which is nice. My favorite “naughty meal”, aside from Amy’s (yes Amy’s, not Annie’s) Gluten-Free Mac & Cheese, is a nice rack of ribs. This week I decide to go with some boneless pork ribs. I hands down like the rack of ribs way better—the boneless version wasn’t quite as juicy—but they were still pretty good, and I used the same rub recipe I got from The Pioneer Woman.
This craving for rib couldn’t have come at a better time, because I had just bought this really cool plate set to do some more shooting on. From looking at other food blogs, I can tell one method is to get out all the ingredients used to make the dish, line up the boxes, jars, and canisters, and take a picture. Alas, my kitchen is rarely clean enough to do this, so I’ve latched onto the other “photo-of-thought” where you take a small amount of spices used and “haphazardly” arrange them on a chopping board. Lemme tell you, there was no haphazard. I was in there with my basting brush trying to wrangle everything into neat little piles.
Garlic Salt (a must have in the kitchen! Throw that on some homemade Mac and Cheese and you’re in business, baby)
Brown Sugar (don’t forget to add a heel of bread to wherever you’re storing it so it doesn’t harden up)
Dijon Mustard (to rub on the meat before sprinkling with the spices)
