Homemade BBQ Sauce

February 29, 2012

The other day I posted a recipe for Crock-Pot Pulled Pork. One of the main ingredients is BBQ sauce, but I don’t recommend using commercially produced bottled BBQ sauce. It’s usually filled with sugar, artificial colors & flavors, and sodium – ugh! Take a look at the ingredients in some BBQ sauces next time you’re […]

Check out the new blog here  Crock-pot recipes are still the most popular recipes on my blog, and I only have two recipes posted. So I’ve got another one for you today. I’ve been meaning to make pulled pork in a slow-cooker for a really long time, but I have a couple of issues with […]

It’s Heart Health Month, and honestly, I haven’t given you very many heart healthy recipes {mini Oreo filled chocolate chip cookies, icing, and sugar cookies aren’t exactly healthy – oops}.

Remember Jump Rope for Heart? I used to love it; instead of school I got to jump rope and just play with my friends. When you’re 8, what’s not to love about that? If my memory serves me right, I think it was always around this time of year, possibly because February is Heart Health […]

You will make them these cookies!! I had a perfectly good post written, and then something happened: I made these cookies last night. And now my world is forever changed! I’m not sure I will ever be able to make a chocolate chip cookie without an Oreo inside of it. Oh bother… If you know […]
