It seems that most of the world has a version of schnitzel: cutlet-style meat, breaded and fried. I love meat, I love bread, and I love anything deep-fried, so it’s a no brainer that I love schnitzel-like foods. If we’re…

This has got to be the easiest pulled pork recipe ever. Honestly, it’s no fuss, no muss, it’s almost not even a recipe at all. I wasn’t really a big fan of pulled pork until I tasted this one. It’s…
