What is it that is so enticing about baby back ribs?!?! Even as a kid when I would barely eat any meat, I always wanted to go to Tony Romas for a kid's basket of baby back ribs! Slightly crazy I still remember that, right? But they've always been one of my favorite foods. I mean who doesn't love to eat with their hands and get barbecue sauce all over their face? The cave woman in me just loves this Primal (and Paleo) comfort food. I rarely eat ribs but when I saw them in Sprouts advertisement this Read more [...]

Summer is making its entrance in LA which means it's time for barbecues and pool parties! I had my friends up to the canyon for a Sunday Funday pool party this past weekend, and since Topanga is such a fire zone, we don't have a barbecue out at our pool.

It may not be as easy as throwing the pork roast in a crock pot Read more [...]
