Pork Potato Casserole

Pork Potato Casserole Served

A couple of weeks ago I shared a delicious recipe for Pulled Pork Nachos.  Pulled pork is an absolute Southern staple and one of my favorite foods!  I love ordering it from local barbecue places, and I also love making it at home!

The only problem with making it at home is that it takes several hours to cook, which means I always have to plan ahead and be prepared to spend a day or an evening watching over the meat as it cooks.  It’s definitely well worth the time and effort, but I don’t always have time to do this!  And when I’ve been busy working all day and it’s time to pick up Noah from school, I definitely don’t have the time to cook a whole pork roast in time for dinner….until now!  Enter Farm Rich® Smokehouse Pulled Pork BBQ!

This pulled pork is just as delicious as anything you can make at home or get from a bbq stand, and it cooks up in the microwave in minutes!  Today I’m going to show you how I paired this delicious pulled pork with some Birds Eye Steamfresh® Flavor Full Sour Cream and Onion Potatoes to make a delicious and easy weeknight meal!

Caramel Apple Waffles with Aunt Jemima

Aunt Jemima Waffles

 There’s nothing like hot waffles for breakfast… that soft, chewy confection with the crispy, crunchy edges drenched in butter and syrup, has always been a classic favorite of mine.  And Aunt Jemima makes it so easy a kid can do it.

Making Breakfast

 This weekend Noah made his own breakfast with just the push of a button.  Now that’s convenient!

These days, however, the waffle has branched out.  If you stroll the internet, you’ll find waffles topped with fruit, cream cheese, peanut butter, and even chocolate!  Waffles also make a great bread substitute for your bacon, egg, & cheese sandwich, breakfast casserole recipes, and more!  Recently I bought some Aunt Jemima Homestyle Waffles, and they inspired me to think outside the box (literally)  and create a recipe especially for this fall season.

Snuggle Scent Boosters

Have you tried Snuggle Scent Boosters yet? I’m always excited to try new cleaning products, especially laundry detergents and fabric softeners!  When you live with a man and a “young man” you have a lot to contend with in the laundry departments (stains, sweat, and other smells), so I always try to use the best products possible to get their clothes smelling clean and fresh.
