I’ve created a delicious BBQ rub for all types of meats and vegetables. Don’t buy the premade stuff in the stores. It’s much more fun to make your own.


  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Kosher Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Sweet Paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons Smoked Paprika
  • 4 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 4 Teaspoons Mustard Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Thyme

Mix spices in a medium-size bowl. Transfer to a jar. Store up to 6 months.

Yup, it’s that easy.

Makes 1 1/2 Cups 


Victoria Hart Glavin has been cooking and writing recipes since she was a teenager. Originally from Nebraska, her appreciation for culinary technique took off when she moved to Lyon, France.

While living in France, Victoria studied French cooking from an expert Lyonnais chef. Victoria learned to love the local culture of preparing and enjoying fresh, seasonal foods. While in France, Victoria experienced the joys of shopping for local produce at the market and preparing fresh foods simply and beautifully in order to enhance the experience of the table. During her time in France, she says she “learned how to squeeze tomatoes at the local market” and “took everything in by osmosis.”

Currently, Victoria creates tasty treats in her tiny kitchen, in New York City, for all to enjoy and on weekends she explores Fairfield County where has a second home. Victoria has shared her recipes with others and now you can enjoy the Tiny New York Kitchen recipe collection, too!  Victoria is a member of Culinary Historians of New York and a member of the Association for the Study of Food and Society.
