If you’re a busy person then you know there’s nothing better than a good slow-cooker recipe. Today we’re gifting you with this delicious pulled pork recipe you can put together and forget about. You’re welcome.

Ingredients

1 (3 lb.) boneless pork shoulder, skin and excess fat removed
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth or water
2 cups bottled or homemade barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Salt and pepper

Directions

Trim pork of any excess fat. Scatter onion over bottom of slow cooker and place pork on top. Add broth, cover and cook on low until very tender, about 8 hours. Remove meat and let cool.
When cool enough to handle, pull meat into thin shreds, removing all fat and gristle. Skim excess fat from liquid in slow cooker.
Return pulled pork to slow cooker and stir in barbecue sauce, mustard, honey and soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 1 hour longer on low. If desired, serve with hamburger buns and sides of pinto beans, corn, tomatoes and coleslaw.

Happy Friday, Flicka Friends! This week I have another winter-themed cocktail ready for you to try. I found it on Pinterest and it is just perfect for this time of year.

Ingredients:
– 
4 ounces of vanilla vodka
– 4 ounces of Malibu Rum
– 4 ounces of Coco Lopez Coconut Milk
– 1/2 an ounce Blue Curacao

Directions:
Prepare your chilled martini glasses by rimming them in honey and then, dip into shredded coconut. Pour all ingredients into a martini shaker with ice. Shake well and carefully strain into 2 martini glasses and toast to the end of the first month of 2013.

Cheers!

Looking for some inspiration for your Labor Day Weekend celebration? Then take a peek at this festive roundup we’ve put together of all things red, white and blue! From food, to nails, to decorations, you’ll be sure to find something to help bring out your holiday spirit! 

We here at What The Flicka believe in parties and get togethers that don’t require weeks of planning and a day’s worth of cooking and house cleaning to execute. For this reason, we love a good recipe shortcut. But, if there’s anything we love more than a recipe shortcut it’s booze.

And that’s what is so great about this guacamole recipe. It combines a handy shortcut with just a little bit of booze… (and don’t worry, you can drink the rest). Win-win!

It’s the 4th and it’s time to celebrate this great country’s birthday! Why not do it in style with the layered cocktail the 4th of July? It’s perfect for sipping while watching the fireworks show.

To make this drink you will need the following:

1/2 oz. of Grenadine
1 oz. Blue Curacao
1 1/2 oz. of chilled Vodka

When making this drink it is important to remember to pour the ingredients in order. First you will add your 1/2 oz or Grenadine. Next, with a spoon turned over so that the round side is up, slowly pour your Blue Curacao over the spoon into the glass. It will be approximately 1 oz. or the same width as your 1/2 or Grenadine. Finally, pour your chilled Vodka, the same way you did the Curacao, into the glass. This will be approximately 1 1/2 oz. or the same width as your Curacao. And there you have it, The 4th of July Cocktail!

It’s almost here! It’s almost here!

We love Independence Day. It’s a birthday party for our country and we celebrate in style. Fireworks are legal and available here. Everyone up and down our street has been shopping and we all anxiously anticipate sundown.

Finally dusk arrives. Cookouts wrap up and fireworks come out. All the neighbors set up chairs in our driveways for the show. For hours we watch the colors light up the sky, hear the bangs and pops, and smell the cordite.

But the tastes? Those are my domain. I love to bake, that’s no secret, but Fourth of July is an especially fun time for preparing desserts because of all the ripe, juicy berries available this time of year. Many of my desserts feature them.

Just before sundown on Independence Day I set up the kitchen island with desserts. Kids and adults alike are in and out of the house all night long. Some of these will be offered this year:
