Soul Dust

Soul Dust

I almost forgot to share this recipe. My bad.

I’m always looking for a good dry rub and then I caught the last few minutes of an old Triple D episode (Guy Fieri), where the owner of a BBQ joint was making something that looked like the perfect rub to me. He then went ahead and messed it up by drizzling way too much honey on his ribs, but that aside.

No quantities were given, so I just gave it a go and tweaked until I had the perfect balance for me. It’s a flavourful sweet and salty rub with a mild kick and can be used on anything, but is especially good on ribs!

I already thought it tasted somewhat familiar but then it hit me; this one’s pretty close to the Dizzy dust all-purpose rub! Makes it even better.

 

Ingredients:

1/4 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoons freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp lemon pepper (Lawry’s of course!)
1/2 tbsp chili powder
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon ground cumin
 

Directions:

Easiest recipe, ever! Just combine all ingredients…

Toss it all in a big bowl.

That’s why I like making my own dry rubs; it just looks so cheerful.

Bibimbap

This tastes so good, it is ridiculous! How’s that for an opener. When I signed up for the foodblog swap—a fun concept between a group of Dutch foodbloggers who cook something from each others blog—I was real happy to have been dealt Ellen’s blog, In My Red Kitchen. Had a hard time picking just one recipe… girlfriend can cook! While perusing her blog, my eye was drawn to something called…

Sweet & Sour Chicken

This is one of those dishes that keeps me coming back to Chinese food over and over again. It rocks. ‘Nuff said. It’s comfort food to the max, but light and fun to eat at the same time. Very family friendly too because it’s not spicy, not overly acidic, sweet or salty. It’s just right. J-man loves this dish. Also, it’s not MSG-laden, which is a big plus to me because…

Mama’s Herbed Chicken

Here’s a recipe my love got from his co-worker; Michael. Actually, this Surinamese herbed chicken recipe belongs to Michael’s mom. He’d been raving about it so much that I just had to have it! Never rave about a recipe and then not give it to me, that’s exceptionally cruel. Plus, and this is a biggie; Kay + Surinamese food = match made in heaven. Got it in the mail, had…

Parmesan & Black Pepper Waffles

I don’t do sweet stuff. You probably know that by now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t transform something that’s usually sweet into something savory. And amazing. And into the best waffle in the world. There, I said it. I love these waffles! Been trying to come up with more breakfast recipes, especially because J-man is crazy about extensive breakfasts and has helped me out in the kitchen a lot….
