Wish no more, because I've got your weeknight meal run rescue right here. All you have to do is get your slow cooker ready for a day's worth of cooking those meaty bones low and slow. When you get home to these bad boys, your home will smell like BBQ and you'll be drooling in anticipation of that fall off the bone tender meat!

It's the rub PLUS the Pig of the Month BBQ Love Me Tender BBQ Sauce that make these ribs so ridiculously flavorful and delicious. You don't have to worry about adding extra liquid because these ribs will put their own juices to work. You don't end up with a gross watery mess at the end of this cooking round. Nope, you get those perfectly cooked, tender, melt-in-your-mouth ribs you've been dreaming of. So who's hungry?!

INSTRUCTIONS: In a small bowl, whisk together spices to create the super secret rub. Remove the membrane from the ribs and cut slab into three equal pieces. Add one of the three piece to the insert of a slow cooker. Top with one third of the rub, using your hands to rub it into the meat. Top the slab piece with one third of the BBQ sauce. Repeats these layers (ribs, rub, sauce) until the last layer of sauce. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Remove from slow cooker and serve.

BBQ Chicken Avocado Flatbreads | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthemonth.com)

Welcome to 2017 piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I am not ready to get back into the swing of things to kick off the New Year. It feels like there are 5 million to-do's on my list and I am barely making a dent in them a few days into the new year... One thing that's falling off my radar? Dinner. I am struggling with pumping out tasty meals without spending wayyyyy too much time on them. Since I have too much to do at work, I am starting to rely on meals of popcorn and soda - NOT how I wanted to start the year.

BBQ Chicken Avocado Flatbreads | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthemonth.com)

Instead, I'm pulling out my Pig of the Month BBQ Shredded Chicken and I'm making something more than just a sandwich with it. These flatbreads are one of the easiest meals EVER and there's no one that can resist them, I don't care how picky of an eater they are. The fluffy naan with BBQ sauce, chicken and avocado is the best base for any pizza. Throw in the bite of some red onion and salty cheese and holy wow, this pizza is one the entire family will be begging you to make on a regular basis. Not to mention it's pretty dang healthy in terms of pizza, so you can feel ok about sticking to those New Year resolutions ;)

Lightened Up Chicken Mac N Cheese | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthemonth.com)

My ultimate comfort meal? A heaping bowl full of macaroni and cheese. No, not the stuff from the box people. I mean the real, down-home heart stuff that fills you up and warms you from the inside out.

Lightened Up Chicken Mac N Cheese | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthemonth.com)

Of course, eating bowl after bowl of that cheesy deliciousness is a little bad for the waistline... On the other hand, I don't believe in compromising flavor in favor of just eating the healthy stuff. That's why this Lightened Up Chicken Mac N Cheese is the one dinner you have to add to your winter weeknight rotation! It's creamy and dreamy and oh-so cheesy, but the lightened up cheese sauce and whole wheat noodles keep you from adding too much to your hips.

I can honestly admit that my attempts at getting healthy this year are pretty dang lame... I am not the biggest fan of sticking to a strict diet. For obvious reasons I'm sure. I mean when I have Pig of the Month BBQ Pulled Pork in my fridge, why the heck would I ever want to just eat my fruits and veggies?! Nope, instead I want to load up on my pork and I GUESS I can load up on some veggies at the same time.

Pulled Pork Veggie Avocado Toasts | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthhemonth.com)

With the pulled pork, these veggie avocado toasts burst with tons of flavor. It's like eating a pulled pork taco but on toast! I love making this for breakfast or lunch, or a mid-afternoon snack, because it's super easy AND it's easy to throw together in even the smallest of kitchens (like that dinky one at your office...). So load up and get healthy (well healthy-ISH)!

13 Easy Bacon Lunches to Get Your Bacon Fix at Work | Sauce + Style

Another work week, another boring lunch packed away in the office refrigerator that you are dreading eating... We've all been there, haven't we? You get sucked into the monotony of easy "healthy" lunches and before you know it, your work lunches are no longer a blissful break. They are a sad way to attempt to fuel up and survive the rest of a crazy work day. Honestly, I believe you deserve a better lunch. Lunch breaks should be about stuffing your face with delicious homemade food and temporarily forgetting all the to-dos on your list for the rest of the day. There's no work, no kids, no distractions - just time for you to eat and enjoy the company of co-workers, or even just yourself (hey, we all need that breathing room some days!). Even if you can only spare 30 minutes, those 30 minutes should be special, right? What makes anything more special than bacon? Nothing. Bacon is the ingredient you need to not only get through the work day, but also to actually enjoy your lunch. With back-to-school craziness coming up, you need some easy lunch ideas in your back pocket to get your bacon fix with at work.

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash | Sauce + Style

You all know we LOVE to get our grill on in the summer. There's only a few precious month's of grilling and boozing to make the most of before the cold weather sets in. As much as we still love those fall months (can you say 'tailgating heaven'?), we kind of wish we could grill all year round.

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash | Sauce + Style

So when those warm temps hit, it's all about grilling all the things. We grill our meats, our veggies, our desserts and now, even our cocktails. Grilled pineapple is already one of our fav summer treats, so why not throw it in with some bourbon so you have something delicious to sip on while you're working hard over that hot grill? There's no reason not to, obviously.

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash | Sauce + Style

These bourbon smash cocktails are packed with grilled pineapple so they are almost like a sangria with all that chunky fruit in there. Of course, instead of wine there's a ton o' bourbon - right up our alley for cocktail hour. Keeping those summer vibes going and working our grills as hard as possible is all we BBQ-loving peeps know how to do, after all. Cheers to the summer!

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash | Sauce + Style

INSTRUCTIONS: In the bottom of a double old fashioned glass, muddle grilled pineapple with lime juice.

Grilled Pineapple Bourbon Smash | Sauce + Style

Pour in bourbon and stir. Fill glass with crushed ice and top with soda water. Stir once more to combine. Serve.
