I love to bake, but I hate to cook. The only recipes you’ll find around here are those that have received Kaufman approval all around – quick and easy, “normal” enough for three young kids, and tasty – like this super easy pulled pork. I have such little interest in cooking that I have no idea how frequently or infrequently a new recipe will be posted… but I know there might be some of you out there who sympathize. The rest of you will want to get your dinner inspiration elsewhere. 🙂
Adapted from every pulled pork recipe I’ve ever found, because none tasted perfect to me. Until now.
