Easiest Pulled Pork Ever!

Easiest Pulled Pork with only 4 Ingredients

With only 4 ingredients, you can't go wrong! It is now our favorite pulled pork recipe. As long as you can remember to put it together in the morning, you will have a meal ready with minimal work after a busy day!

Pork Roast {mine was about 2 1/2 -3 lbs}
1 can Pepsi or Diet Pepsi 
1/2 bottle barbecue sauce {we love Sweet Baby Ray's}
Seasoning Salt
  1. Place roast in slow cooker and cover roast completely with seasoning salt.
  2. Pour Pepsi and barbecue sauce in a bowl and mix together. Pour over roast.
  3. Cook on low for at least 6 hours, even longer for more tender pork.
    {I have also tried this with a frozen roast and cooked on low for 10 hours. It was fantastic!}
  4. After 4 hours, take two forks and shred the pork.
  5. Let it sit and cook for the remaining time. The roast will soak up the flavor and tenderizes even more!
  6. Put on roll or bun and enjoy!!

Valentine Conversation Hearts

As promised, here is the tutorial for some more Valentine decorations!
To go with my Valentine Apothecary Jars, I made these super fun, super glittery conversation hearts!

They are very simple to make - and not a bad price tag, either!
I bought 4 wooden heart plaques at 50¢ a piece
(these 4" heart plaques are at Hobby Lobby for 79¢ regular price)
I already had the acrylic paint, canvas and glitter spray paint!

Not bad for $2!!

First, I painted each of the hearts a different color. Each one has a couple of coats.
Let dry completely before doing the next step.

I typed and printed out 4 messages, 1 for each heart.
You could also do this on the Silhouette/Cricut/Cameo etc, but I didn't have red vinyl. So, I'm doing this the *other* way!
1. First, turn the print over and trace over the letters, putting quite a bit of pressure and color it in dark.
2. Next, turn the paper over and color over top of the letters, again with quite a bit of pressure.
3. Carefully remove the paper from the wood and ta-da!! You now have the letters to paint over!
{Just to see the difference, I traced the letters for the purple heart pretty light. The pink ones I did darker.}

Then I carefully painted over all the letters with red and let dry. The letters all needed a couple of coats.
Next, I spray painted over them with glitter spray paint.

I also spray painted an 8x10 canvas with the same glitter spray paint and
attached the hearts on with some Amazing Goop glue and let dry overnight.

Makes for a pretty cute Valentine shelf if I do say so myself!


Valentine Apothecary Jars

*Love* day is sneaking up on us fast!
Have you started decorating for Valentine's day?

Here is a simple decoration I threw together in less than 10 minutes, and for only abut $3 total!

After emptying out my winter apothecary jars, I wanted to decorate them for Valentines Day. So I bought a bag of the chalk-like conversation hearts that no one will eat anyway and poured them into the jar. The bag only filled up one of the jars, and I wasn't about to go buy more... so what to do??


I grabbed two empty toilet paper rolls and put one in the center of each jar. Then, I carefully poured hearts in to cover them up. And voila! The jars look full and no one will ever know... until now, anyway. Then I taped some glittery silver ribbon {the same kind I used for the Magic Santa Key} around the top of the jar to give it some glittery-goodness.

*LOVE* it!!
