Pulled Pork Casserole

June10

I saw this one morning on Mr. Food. It caught my eye because it used refrigerated BBQ pork, a staple at my house. I loved how convenient this was to make, how quickly it came together for supper, and that my husband raved over it. There’s nothing pretty about this casserole, but the taste was delicious!

Toffee Pecan Crunch Bars

May30

I actually tried these bars at a funeral. Liked them enough that I tracked down the recipe on the internet. I believe I’ve seen similar recipes using saltine crackers as well. I just sprinkled the chocolate chips on top, but they could be spread out, or even melted and drizzled over the top. Honestly, the toffee is so good that the bars would be great without the chocolate as well.

I found this recipe idea on the minimalistbaker.com site via Pinterest and adapted it a bit. They’re definitely not ‘typical’ pancakes, but they’re pretty good when you’re looking for a change of pace.

Basic Chili Mac

April15

I love chili mac, but it’s one of those things I always have to google because I can’t remember how to make it. This is a recipe I threw together using various recipes with the ingredients I happened to have on hand. We thought it turned out pretty good.

Vodka Barbecue Sauce

This is a recipe a friend found on the BBQ Pit Boys website. Great on ribs in combination with the Brown Sugar Dry Rub. It’s a spicy barbecue sauce with a bit of a kick.
