Southern Style Pulled Pork BBQ in the Slow Cooker

Pulled pork barbecue is pretty much heaven on a bun as far as I’m concerned and it seems every region has their own way of doing it. In the South, the barbecue is smoked and juicy, served as pictured here or with a little bit of clear mild vinegar sauce poured over it, perhaps some of our white bbq sauce. If you haven’t tried it, it’s a must!

This recipe makes it easy with the help of a slow cooker.

Indulge in a bite of heaven with this luscious Strawberry Punch Bowl Cake. Layers of moist vanilla cake, velvety pudding, and juicy strawberries are crowned with a cloud of whipped cream, creating a tantalizing symphony of flavors and textures. This recipe always screams summer! 

loaded baked potato salad

With a sneaky shortcut, my quick and easy loaded baked potato salad recipe is so full of flavor, with crispy bacon, boiled egg, mayo, mustard, and sweet pickle relish.

Macaroni Salad 

Al dente macaroni, crisp vegetables, savory bacon, and tangy pickles are what make this the perfect side for any pot luck! This is always a crowd pleaser. 

You know, every time I grill out I end up with leftover hamburger buns. Now I get excited when that happens because this is the BEST french toast ever! Okay, sometimes I even go and buy buns just to do this with them ~grins~. Instructions for freezing also included 🙂
