Anything Dry Rub

Please share:

This is another one of those long-forgotten recipes that recently resurfaced and I’m so glad that it did. I used to use this stuff ALL the time and it made everything taste better. Everything. It’s the “I-don’t-know-what-to-make-for-dinner-but-I-have-chicken-in-the-fridge-so-I’ll-smother-this-on-it” rub, and everyone will love it and praise you.

Obviously, just looking at the measurements, this makes a lot. I just store it in a tupperware in the pantry. I like to make the full recipe portion because it’s great rubbed on an entire roasting chicken. PS, I have a great recipe for a roast chicken that I’ll try to post soon. Just be patient…

  1. I love your spice bottles where did you find them Also the labels are adorable.
    I can not wait to try this, though I may leave out some of the cayenne pepper and all of the coconut sugar since i do not like spicy foods and am doing the Whole 30 so no Sugar.

  2. My husband and I did whole 30 a few months ago and I made this seasoning and used it maybe once or twice. We’re now just trying to stay low carb and eat healthy. I ended up finding this in my spice cabinet and added it to my oven roasted drumsticks before cooking them- they are addicting!! It’s not that spicy (though my nose seems to disagree!), but it’s the perfect combination of seasonings to make you want more.

We have enjoyed this soup both with and without the addition of the pork sausage, so it is both Whole30 and vegan friendly. This minestrone soup tastes even better than the endless soup from a certain chain restaurant, and you can make you own endless salad to go along with it.

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
