Pulled Pork with Root Beer BBQ Sauce

Ladies and gentlemen, the easiest dinner recipe ever. Well, okay, maybe I exaggerated, but it is pretty darn easy and delicious. I added coleslaw to mine, feel free to omit that if you'd prefer. Recipe courtesy of one of my favorite cooking websites of all time, Mennonite Girls Can Cook.

  1. Are you serious? This sounds sooo good! I love root beer.

  2. That looks really good. Who would have thought about using root beer? Genius!

  3. These sound delicious! I've used Cola for slow-cooker pork, but root beer sounds amazing! I can't wait to try this:)

  4. Does the Root beer make it super sweet? If so, is there any other substitute you'd recommend in it's place? Does the fizz help to break down the meat? What about selzer water with no flavor? I love my slow cooker, but don't like sweet too much! Thanks

  5. I Love it! Mennonite girls can cook but did you know Mennonite boys can BBQ?

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb

I tried out this delicious recipe from the wonderful blog Smitten Kitchen. The only thing I forgot was to add a dusting of powdered sugar on top. I love rhubarb so this was a winner. Enjoy!
