Oh how I love the spring, even on slightly overcast, cooler days like today, its still warm enough to fire up the grill and make some delicious food for dinner.

Tonight I tried out two new recipes and they were a hit with the hubs. And now thanks to the Epicurious app for the iPhone many more new recipes are to come no doubt.

Spice-Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops
  • 3 tablespoons sweet paprika, preferably Spanish
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt, either kosher or sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • Six to eight 10- to 11-ounce bone-in pork rib chops, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • Vegetable oil spray
Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic and Herbs
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1 1/2 pounds red-skinned sweet potatoes (yams), peeled, cut into 1/2-inch-wide slices, then again into 1/2-inch-wide strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

My husband and I love sweet potato fries, but never tried with the garlic and parsley on top. Sounds really yummy and something I will try soon :)
