Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Slow Cooker (crock-pot) Pulled Pork

This recipe for slow cooker pulled pork is super easy and delicious!

Find a barbecue sauce that you love and use it in this recipe. I love the rib sauce from Swiss Chalet so whenever we eat there, I usually ask for a large rib sauce to go. Just keep it in the fridge. It's great on pork or chicken. Next time you eat out at a chicken and rib place, ask for some sauce to go.

Slow Cooker (crock-pot) Pulled Pork
Makes 4-6 servings

  • 2lb pork roast of your choice
  • root beer to cover roast
  • your favourite barbecue sauce
  • soft buns (but I eat mine without the bun)
  1. In your crock-pot, add the pork and cover it with root beer. I ran out so I topped it up with Coke. I suppose either would do. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours.
  2. Remove pork to a platter and shred it with 2 forks. Remove any fat that you see. Return the pork to the pot or juices and cook for another hour.
  3. Remove with a slotted spoon and toss with as much or as little of your favourite bbq sauce as you like.
  4. Toast your buns in the oven with a little butter if desired and serve it with the pork as a sandwich or on the side. Yummy!
