“As soon as I saw the recipe, I knew I needed to make it immediately. I’m eating a piece now. Delicious, and so easy to make! I really could eat the whole pan! My father wanted me to put some chocolate on top… until he tasted it. He’s normally a chocolate-only dessert type of guy, but he gives this a huge thumbs up, and so does my mom. I will make this often ~ I can’t believe how good this is with only three ingredients. Thanks so much for such a wonderful and easy recipe!” — Amy

This will indeed be joining my recipe collection! Thank you so much for making me a pulled pork convert!” — Jill



2. Spicy Sausage Pasta

“I am not one to cut corners to speed up a meal while sacrificing flavor. I am not really interested in 3-ingredient crockpot recipes. I’m mentioning this because I was somewhat skeptical about this recipe as I was putting it together, and when I say that we loved this recipe, I want to be sure the full weight of the compliment is conveyed. Don’t let the ease of this dish trick you into thinking you compromise on flavor, because it doesn’t!” — Bethany
