Slow-cooker Pulled Pork

Best cuts for pulled pork

There are lots recipes for pulled pork.  Some recommend the pork butt, some the pork shoulder and you can even use pork tenderloin.  I like to use the shoulder – you can get a good sized one – around 4-5 pounds, it fits in the average sized slow cooker (3-5 quarts) and is reasonably priced at the butcher or grocery store.

Best Ever BBQ Sauce

Once your pork shoulder is cooked, and drained, following my recipe, you need a premium BBQ sauce to bring out the flavour of the pork.  In our home that means our own special homemade BBQ sauce.  So here is the recipe, just for you.  It’s so easy to make, you will always want to have lots on hand – for barbecuing any time of the year.  The hickory smoke flavour is perfect for pulled pork.


The Best Creamy Coleslaw

The secret to the great flavor in this best creamy coleslaw recipe is onion. Green cabbage, chopped onion and carrots combine with your favorite salad dressing. BIG flavor and a crowd pleaser every time!

My Mom used to say the secret to the best coleslaw was adding enough onion!  Coleslaw can take many forms but the tangy sweetness in this recipe is always great with outdoor BBQ, smoked meat and our slow cooker pulled pork.  It comes together in minutes and you can serve it again the next day.


Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake with Hot Water Frosting

This Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake is BIG on flavour and short on prep time. The recipe makes a large Bundt cake big enough to feed a crowd!

You are going to fall in love with this Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake.  We first enjoyed this cake last summer at a Canada Day BBQ!  I made a few of my own changes to it, and turned it into a bundt cake.  The Hot Water Frosting is something I hadn’t tried before, and this is definitely a one-bowl scratch cake.  Yes indeed!

S’mores Magic Cookie Bar Pizza

S'mores Magic Cookie Bar Pizza. The ooey gooey combination of chocolate, coconut, and graham crackers topped with a thick layer of sweetened condensed milk – oh wow!  You know what I mean!

Remember Magic Cookie Bar squares?  Some folks call it Seven Layer Cookie Bars.  Well I took the recipe and turned it into a dessert pizza!  I know, I kind of have a thing for ‘pie-shaped desserts”.  Yummm!
