Friday I’m In Love, Volume 6 (featuring my favorite seasonings!)

Happy Friday!


A friend shared this with me on Facebook and it made me laugh.

I have a few favorites to share with you today along with a giveaway for my favorite seasoning rubs of all time. Let’s get started.


The weather. The weather, the weather, the weather. It’s INCREDIBLE in Charlotte this week. This Chinese Magnolia is in full bloom in our front yard and it makes me happy every time I see it.


I have been eating meals and working outside and all the windows in the house are open. This is that magical time of year where there is no humidity and the mosquitos haven’t come out yet. I am typing this post while I sit on the patio with a breeze and the pond fountain in the background. 🙂


The girls are loving the weather too. We’ve been making frequent trips to the park to throw the ball.


We are going through a bag of these every two days. So good.


I got a polish change on my fingers and toes today and went with bright blue. I love it!


Filed under things the pups do NOT love…getting baths. It was a full out pity party over here last night.


So I’m super excited to share with you today a GIVEAWAY for my favorite seasoning rubs. My dad introduced me to The Dizzy Pig years ago…gosh probably 10 and I’ve been hooked ever since. He started using them to season things he was grilling on his Big Green Egg but now we both use them all the time for everything. I pulled a bunch of the bottles out to photograph and this wasn’t even all of them I had on hand!


I use these rubs to season everything from meats to seafood to veggies. They are so versatile and flavorful. I also appreciate that all of the rubs are all-natural and MSG-free. They even offer a salt-free formulas of a couple of their most popular blends.


My all-time favorites are Shakin’ the Tree, Raging River and Fajita-ish although I also love Raisin’ the Steaks, Red Eye Express and Dizzy Dust, which is the anchor rub of their line. Recently, I tried Mediterranean-ish for the first time and it’s becoming a fast favorite too. And there are several more that I haven’t even tried yet! I love that they offer so many great options with such diverse flavor profiles. They are a great gift option for the foodie or grill-loving guy in your life as well.

I have mentioned and linked to these rubs in so many previous posts so I’m so excited to offer this giveaway. I rarely reach out to brands but I love this one so much that I asked if they’d do a giveaway for you guys and they said yes!

One winner will receive a full-sized bottle of your choice along with a sample set.

To enter for a chance to win, head over to The Dizzy Pig’s website and check out all of the seasoning rubs they offer. Leave a comment letting me know which one you’d like to try. 

(Giveaway open until Monday, March 14 at midnight EST. One entry per person. U.S. only.)

While we’re talking giveaways, let’s get to some winners from past giveaways. I have emailed all winners.

    Ive never heard of this brand but definitely need to remember it when I am struggling to find a small gift for the men in my family!! I think the sensible choice I should make is the Raging River or dizzy dust because they look to be universal, but I’m really more interested in the Bayouish seasoning because i really LOVE blackened fish and chicken. Just thinking about it is making my mouth water – Yum!!!! By the way, love the pic with the sad looking puppies 🙂

  • Allison March 12, 2016, 9:16 am


  • Jordan March 12, 2016, 9:42 am

    Can you use the rubs for anything or is it mostly just meat? I ask b/c I’m pescetarian and roast a ton of veggies. I imagine the rubs would be really good on fish and veggies since I know you cook a lot of those two things. I think the bayouish sounds amazing and also the Shakin’ the Tree!

  • Laura March 12, 2016, 10:06 am

    Yum!! I love dizzy pig spices! The pineapple head is my favorite for seafood! Would love to win!
