You must go make this

One of my favorite meals that I don’t eat all that often because the meat can be expensive, is pork tenderloin. For the past number of years I’ve been making my cousin’s marinade and completely fell in love with it and haven’t changed it up for that very reason.

That is, until I saw Julie from Peanut Butter Finger‘s post about the dry rub recipe she found on the Food Network, she mentioned she couldn’t get enough of it and from that I was sold. 

Well, those were my exact thoughts too. It was delicious and will definitely be linked to the Food Network’s site when I post it up on my recipe page. It looks a little burnt on the top. I followed the directions properly, but I think the first step in cooking it in the pan, I had the heat up a little too high.

Don’t worry about the amount of butter on those potatoes. We rarely eat baked potatoes. Oopsie.

My mouth is watering just looking at that meal. I kinda want to make it again really soon.

Coconut Wild Cherry Christmas Cookies

Hope everyone enjoyed opening their gifts yesterday, for those who celebrated! Julie is my second poster lined up and this is her second guest post for me which I’m so thankful for! Plus, I envy her hair. Julie did a tutorial on how she curls the ends of her hair with a straightener and it comes out looking so put together on her. I’ve tried countless times and it just doesn’t work on me.  I always love that hair style she’s sporting. You can also find Julie over on twitter!!


Hello Spiffy Kerms fans! My name is Julie and I am the face behind the blog Peanut Butter Fingers which follows my life as I try to work out regularly, eat (mostly) healthy and navigate life as a newlywed living in a brand new town.

With the holiday season in full swing, I thought it might be fun to share a festive cookie recipe with you guys while Nancy is livin’ it up and enjoying her Christmas vacation!

Since I am all about super-simple recipes, this particular recipe is beyond easy and only requires five ingredients.

The best part (besides the taste)? They sound pretty darn impressive.
