Chocolate Pretzel Treats
Try making with the Hugs style Hershey's Kiss. The stripes with the candy looks so pretty! I usually do Christmas M&M's but I think this year, I will use Halloween colors.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
So many of these reviews just raved about this recipe and yet there were a few that complained about the "root beer" taste in the meat. I was convinced those few were just crazy... well, they were right! (Hear me out!) When you take the roast out to drain the root beer and pull the meat, you can most definitely taste the root beer. However, if you follow the directions and suggestions from others, put the meat back in the crockpot mixed with the BBQ sauce for an hour or so. After that you will not taste the root beer. You get a very tender and flavorful pork sandwich. Do not use tenderloin, a waste of good meat. I used a 4.5 lb pork roast on sale (the one with a bone) and a bottle of good ole K-C Masterpiece sauce. With some toasted buns and pinto beans, you got yourself a down home meal. Thanks, we really loved it!

One Pot Pinto Beans
Very good! I followed the cooking directions exactly except I used a yellow onion and did not add the pico or cheese. I'll make this again and probably adjust the seasoning more to my tastes. Thanks!
