After a lot of thought, I have decided to schedule my posts instead of posting when it is convenient. Typically I aim for a daily post but lately it seems I have failed miserably at this. So much has been going on. Lots of work stuff, my aunt’s wedding, a trip out of town. I just haven’t been cooking like I normally would. For the sake of consistency, I am going to try to post Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Of course, I will post more frequently if I do a week of themed posts like Bacon Week or NOLA Week. And if I am off on vacation and cooking up a storm, I’ll be sure to post all the fun.
Dear readers, any thoughts or feedback about this or anything else? I want my readers to be happy!
Spice Rubbed Baby Back Ribs (a variation of this TasteFood recipe)
- 1/8 cup granulated sugar
- 1/8 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tbsp cayenne
- 2 racks baby back pork ribs
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Combine all of the rub ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Rinse and pat ribs dry with a paper towel. Rub the spices all over the ribs on both sides, coating well. Bake in oven for 3 hours. Prepare grill for low to medium heat. Grill until the meat darkens and the fat starts to get crispy. (I did low and slow for about 30 minutes so that that the smoky flavor would really get into the meat.) Serves 4.

It’s good to try to schedule, but it’s your blog. If you miss a post or have to schedule differently don’t sweat it. These look great by the way.
Thanks for the encouragement. You are right. Blogging shouldn’t stress me out. I just wish I could blog full time 🙂
hhmmm…hhmmm…hhmmm.. YUUMMMYYY! Looks so delicious! 😀
Thanks! They were tasty!
This looks yummy!! And, you just post whenever you can! Don’t put pressure on yourself – we’re always here looking forward to another wonderful post from you – whenever you get to them!! As for me, since I no longer have a family to cook for, I don’t cook as often – so my posts are really random… but that works too !!
Just wanted to say that your idea of sometimes doing a week’s worth of recipes based on the same ingredient is a lot of fun. I’ll have to go through your previous ones!!
Thanks for stopping by. I love doing themed weeks because it helps me stretch by recipe repertoire. I am glad you like them. Any suggestions for a future week you’d like to see?

4 posts a week is impressive enough, let alone daily! Thank you for the link – the ribs look delicious!
Thank you for the recipe. Four posts a week is hard but I hope I can keep up with it. Blogging is awesome and I love the community I have met.

I agree with Greg.. The joy of blogging is doing what makes you happy.. and that makes your readers happy:) My son was just asking me for ribs the other day.. these look amazing! xx
Hi Barb! Thanks for your kind words. If you make these, let me know what you think. I have missed you in my feed but I am looking forward to looking back at your posts.
Wish we had BBQ weather over here in England, we just have to make do with the oven which doesn’t get the same smoky flavour 😦 These look delicious!
We only had BBQ weather yesterday. Today it is rainy and 35 degrees. They say “if you don’t like the weather in KY, wait until tomorrow and it will be different.” Sadly it’s true.
Great looking ribs!
Thanks Michelle. Yesterday was so lovely but today sure was sorry in comparison. I am happy for the rain though. The drought is getting old.
I’ve been thinking about scheduling posts. I’m bad. I’ll do a ton of posts for awhile and then burn myself out or life will get busy and I’ll slack off. But like others have said, do what makes you happy and we’ll read them when you get them up. Don’t stress on it.
I have missed you in your absence but I totally understand. It is hard to prepare so many new recipes and post them. Especially if they totally bomb. Glad to see you back though!
