Eastern Carolina-style Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Eastern Carolina Style Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Pulled pork sandwiches in the South are an amazing, yet polarizing meal.  While most of North Carolina considers pulled pork to be a tender, juicy, messy style of sandwich whereby the meat is smothered in barbecue sauce, along the Coastal Carolinas this little gem reigns.  Still tender and juicy, it's flavor is primarily achieved through a combination of different vinegars and spices.  You control just how spicy it is, so don't worry about making this for little ones.  Click below to read more.

Grilled honey chipotle lime chicken served with grilled onions and peppers and guacamole
Tex-Mex style food is probably my most favorite style of cooking (and eating).  I have all sorts of recipes from this genre in regular rotation in my kitchen, but one of the all time bests is this recipe.  The spicy heat of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce is offset by the sweetness of honey, and a good dose of fresh lime juice and orange juice brightens up the flavor and tenderizes the chicken in a way that is impossible to achieve otherwise.  To read more, click below.

Fresh Guacamole

 It never ceases to amaze me how a handful of simple ingredients, when thrown together in just the right way, can turn into something so delicious.  Guacamole has got to be one of the most perfect foods on Earth!  It works perfectly as an appetizer when served with chips, but it's also an amazing accompaniment to grilled chicken steak.  As a dressing, it's creamy flavor and chunky texture makes even the most mundane salad more interesting.  Click below to read more.

This is all you need to make your own Daily Shower Spray
Spraying your shower down with daily shower spray, like this one from Tilex, is a great way to keep your shower looking, feeling, and smelling great in between deep cleanings.  But it's not cheap!  One 32 oz. bottle can cost over $3, and it will only last for a week or two at the most!  For just a few dollars more, you can purchase the ingredients to make many gallons of daily shower cleaner.  Click below to read more.
