I am so excited as I am writing this……it’s almost opening day for Bear Creek Rubs. This is the cumulation of more than four years of hard work, mixing, cooking, taste testing, going back to the kitchen to make changes. There are so many chefs and cooking shows on television, and a lot of the recipes sound good BUT I am a tried and true comfort food person. Do not get me wrong, I like to spice up my recipes and then enhance the flavors while staying with comfort foods…..fried chicken, lamb chops, pork chops, roasts, meatloaf, mac and cheese, oven roasted vegetables, and the list goes on.
My sister and I are retired so we have time to indulge in something we love: COOKING!! We both traveled extensively across the United States prior to retiring. Judy, teaching and speaking in the field of Gerontology, me, as a Consumer Safety Inspector for the USDA. In our travels we searched out local eateries to get a feel for area food and meal preparation.
We discovered that there were significant regional differences in food preparation, flavor enhancement, and cooking techniques. Underscoring the unique regional differences was the use of spices.
It has been a joy to experiment with different combinations of spices to create flavorful meals. It is an adventure to develop a specific recipe for a particular cut of meat and them decide to incorporate that spice combination to add to the vegetable dish. Or combine it with sour cream for a chip/vegetable dip or add to oil for a bread dip.
Join us as we continue to develop new recipes and limitless ways to use these spice combinations to add excitement to your meals. We also would love to hear from you on ways you have used these rubs.
