So what have you done lately to spark your sex life? I know it can be a shy subject for some people. The truth is, if you don't work on it, it won't go anywhere. Men and Women both want to feel needed. They need reminders. Sure it is great to just do fun romantic things, but EVERYONE wants a healthy sex life with the one they love. So what can you do to let your loved one know you are ready and willing tonight? Think back to your first encounter with love. Love notes were huge. I know the days have changed now and it is all about instant messaging and social media, but nothing is better than a hand written note. It is personal.
Romantic Tip: Write your partner a note about your most memorable sexual encounter or time together. It will spark your memory and theirs and get the creative juices flowing, you can even spray the note with your favorite perfume or cologne.
Now on to the food. My husband loves a good set of baby back ribs. Most people like to just smother them in barbeque sauce, but my man loves them with a good dry rub, then he dips them in the sauce. This recipe is amazing. You won't believe how flavorful they are!
Dry Rub Jenga Ribs
adapted from Bon Appétit | February 2013
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
1/2 tablespoon (packed) light brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 rack Baby Back Pork Ribs
Whisk garlic powder, salt, brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, pepper, cumin, onion powder, cinnamon, and coriander in a small bowl to blend.
Preheat oven to 300°F. Rub ribs all over with spice blend.
Wrap rack in foil, crimping seams to seal tightly. Place rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake ribs until fork-tender, about 3 hours. Serve with your favorite barbeque sauce for dipping. I served mine with steamed white rice and Spicy Bok Choy.
