I’ve been meaning to share these Cinnamon Rolls for a long time now. I can’t wait any longer!!!
If Buffalo chicken wings and Nachos had a baby… this is what you would get.
Are you ready to play a game? Well, you’ll have to read quite a bit more if you want to know what it is. If you’re too curious to wait, I put the game in bold letters so you can easily scroll down and find it. But what fun is that? If you do read on until you find it and you don’t enjoy yourself…. well, let me know and I’ll give you your money back.
Whether you’re having a huge gathering at your house, taking a dish to someone else’s gathering, or just making dinner for your family, then it’s time to make Spicy Pop Pulled Pork.
Some pulled pork recipes take a bit to get together… even the slow cooker ones… but this one is not one of them.
In fact, I would challenge you to see just how fast you can get this in the pot. Next time I make it I’m setting a stopwatch and I plan to keep track so I know if I break my record. It’s just that fast!
The recipe is for cooking it in the oven but I made it in the slow cooker to save on energy and heat… 6 hours with the oven on in the middle of the day means an air conditioner that has to work DOUBLE time… not an option for our budget right now!
Lemon-Garlic Chicken with Creamed Corn
Super simple, super easy, super budget-friendly….
I had a hard time picking out a “C” ingredient but I have finally come to a decision. We LOVE this ingredient… my husband and I… even my 2 year old daughter seems to like it. She likes it plain too… no sugar or anything else needed. She likes it black.
Do you know what it is now? 🙂 C is for Coffee!
Both my husband and I worked at Starbucks in college. When we started there I’m pretty sure neither of us had really had anything coffee-like from there besides a Caramel Frappuccino. In Chicago I would make myself “steamers” (just hot milk and syrup) to stay warm. If you don’t like coffee you should try it. My favorite flavor to add to the steamed milk was hazelnut. Soon after starting work there I “graduated” to white chocolate mochas… pretty much the sweetest, least coffee-like espresso drink on the menu. My husband was the same: white mochas. Now he drinks black coffee or espresso shots over ice and my “poison” of choice is a Grande Americano (black). I like to order a cappuccino from time to time, but it’s hard to find a barista who steams the foam the correct way. I think it’s the hardest drink to make but one of the yummiest if it’s done right. It’s hard to mess up an Americano (just espresso shots and water). I’m officially addicted.
So, Coffee? Does this mean all desserts? Nope! I have short ribs and bone-in pork chops in the line-up and probably one other main course recipe to come! We’ve already tried out the short ribs and I’m SUPER excited to post them. It’s a crock pot recipe so you have work on the front end but then you can just relax! Woohoo!
Don’t worry… there will be desserts too! I have been drooling over them for days now. The Espresso Chocolate Mousse… it’s to die for. AND… it’s SO easy.
If you’re a coffee-lover I bet you’re excited! If not, we’ll convert you 🙂
