Spicy Coffee Rub

Who likes to grill? For most I think grilling season is just getting starting, personally I feel like in Arizona it’s just about getting too hot to be out grilling 😀 I joke in the summer time that you can slow cook some ribs without charcoal, with the lid down our grill gets up to…

Southwest Potato Casserole

Southwest Potato Casserole

I gave potato casserole a makeover and spiced it up a bit! This southwest version comes together super easy and makes a great side for just about any meal. You could make it even quicker by using frozen potatoes, like they homestyle kind, I think, I never buy those. But I you’re in a hurry,…
