Knorr Four™ Recipe Contest

BlogHer, the wonderful network of bloggers, is having a recipe contest using the new Knorr Homestyle Stock. The product is a concentrated stock (in my case, chicken), to which you add water for your recipe. Simple!

For my recipe, I made a pulled pork that you can use for taco/burrito fillings, sandwiches, or just with rice. It's a slow-cooker recipe, perfect for a busy summer day!

Sweet Pulled Pork
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 3-6 hours
servings: 8

1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 c light brown sugar
2 t garlic powder
1/4 t ground ginger
1 container Knorr Homestyle chicken stock
1 cup water
2 pound pork loin roast

tortillas, buns, or rice for serving

In a slow cooker, combine first 7 ingredients. Stir well. Add pork roast. Cook on low for 6 hours, or high for 3-4 hours. Shred meat with forks and serve as desired.

Pinkalicious Cake

Ok, maybe I'm the last mom of daughters on earth who hadn't read this book, but someone asked me to make a Pinkalicious cake so I finally read it. Adorable!!
This cake was for a sweet little 6 year old. The mom really liked this cake, so that was the inspiration. The bottom cake was chocolate and the cupcake was vanilla.
