Barbecue Pulled Pork Sliders

barbecue pulled pork sliders

Applebees restaurant has little barbecue pork sliders that are super yummy.  So the inspiration for this recipe comes strictly from them.  I’m usually not a pork or red meat eater but there’s just something so delicious about it once it’s slathered in rich homemade barbecue sauce.

I found a different barbecue sauce recipe to test out that’s based on ketchup and brown sugar.  It’s another winner!  It turned out sweet and tangy with just the right amount of zip.  Combined with the sweetness of the King’s Hawaiian honey wheat rolls I used, they were oh so yummy!

I find that using a crock pot to slow cook the pork works best for me.  I used around a 4lb hunk of pork this time but I divided it in half after it was fully cooked.  I’m using the other half of the shredded pork later this week for pork tacos.  That recipe will be coming soon too!

bath and body works fall candles

Candles are my thing.  As I type, I have three burning throughout the house.  And since I work from home, I’m burning candles every single day.  So as you can imagine I go thru quite a lot of them.

My newest candle obsession are scents from Bath and Body Works.  I am in love with the four that I have now so I wanted to share them with you.  My absolute favorite is the Creamy Pumpkin.  Oh so good!  It’s a buttery pumpkin scent with hints of sweet caramel.  Mmm, smells good enough to eat.  LOVE it!

My second favorite would have to be the Apple Crumble.  The tart smell of apples mixed with spices and some buttery vanilla.  It’s so good and the apple scent is so strong.  I love apple scents in the fall and this one’s a keeper!

win 6 bottles of Essie nail polish

My newest obsession this year is Essie nail polish.  I love all of their colors and especially their neutrals.  They have so many different shades to choose from and I’m always buying more!  In fact I just picked up another bottle yesterday afternoon in “over the edge”.  It’s an awesome black/steel gray shimmer.  Can’t wait to try it!

Not only does Essie polish have awesome colors, it lasts for a fair amount of time.  Applied to my natural nails, I can usually get 5 days without any chipping or peeling.  And that’s all while doing laundry, cooking, cleaning and typing on the computer.  It’s been my go to polish all summer long!

Since I love Essie nail polish so much, I thought I’d share 6 of my favorite colors with one lucky winner!  One reader will win all 6 of the shades pictured.  These are new bottles that I purchased myself to share with you!  All you need to do is leave a comment below telling me either what your favorite nail polish brand is or what your all time favorite nail polish color is.

Super Soft Pumpkin Cookies

September 9, 2011

soft pumpkin cookies

The weather here turned a little chilly this week and it got me in the mood for something pumpkin.  Really anything would do but these soft pumpkin cookies really caught my attention.

These amazing cookies are delicious!  You will not believe how soft and moist they are.  So much so that they stick together if you stack them up.  The original recipe called for a simple glaze icing but once I tasted them, I think they don’t even need the glaze.  I like the flavor of the pumpkin to be the shining star.
