Pulled Pork Sandwiches With Classic Cole Slaw

I have a love-hate relationship with BBQ. Which is why I created this delicious slow cooker pulled pork sandwich. It’s my “go-to” recipe for large Family Parties or Summer BBQ’s. The classic coleslaw on top of the pulled pork, combined with the BBQ sauce, makes for one AMAZING juicy lip smacking sandwich! You’re gonna love it…and so will the relatives! Hope ya don’t mind them hanging around…lol…

Kicked Up Ultimate Boxed Brownies

I admit it! I’ve always been a Boxed Brownie snob. I was convinced that there was no way a boxed brownie mix could ever be better than my homemade brownies. It just wasn’t possible. Then one day…Ol’ Betty and I had a little get together. What happened next was nothing short of AMAZING…

Best Cheesy “Funeral” Potatoes

I can actually remember when these Cheesy “Funeral” Potatoes showed up on the scene! (YES! I’m THAT old!) Back then we didn’t call them “Funeral Potatoes”. I’m O.K. with that! We nicely called this recipe “Cheesy Potato Casserole” and left the event of “death” out of it! I mean, I do realize they are “To Die For”, and they are now a standard staple at every funeral across the country…but I really hate their acquired “nick name”. I mean if they are stuck with the nick-name of “funeral” potatoes…allow me to introduce you to “funeral ham”, “funeral” Parker house rolls, “funeral” bagged salad mix with Great value “funeral” ranch dressing… and let’s not forget about “funeral” Texas sheet cake! Okay, okay…I’ll put away my sarcasm for the day…but first, could you pass me the “funeral” margarine…
