SUPER EASY Three Ingredient Chicken Bar-B-Q

I love the taste of chicken and pork B-B-Q, but I have always been slightly intimidated to try to make it myself.  Finally after my husband’s favorite Bar-B-Q restaurant closed down, I realized that I was going to have to take the bull by the horns (or chicken by the beak?) and come up with an easy recipe to make it at home.  Honestly this could not be any easier…all you need is 3 ingredients, a crock-pot, and some time.

Step 1:  Add to crock pot; 6-8 boneless chicken breast, 1 jar of BBQ sauce, and about 20 ounces of Coke or Pepsi.

Step 2:  Cook on low heat for 7 hours.

Step 3:  This is a personal preference step…I like to ladle out all of the Pepsi/Coke.  This gets rid of all of the fat and extra soda that has not been cooked into the chicken.

Step 4:  Use a fork to shred the chicken and add another jar of BBQ sauce to replace all that you ladled out.  Return to cook on low heat for another hour.

Step 5: Serve!!

And that is it….super easy right?!  We like to serve ours with coleslaw on top, but again that is personal preference.  This recipe could easily feed 8 to 12 hungry people depending on how big the chicken breasts are.  You can also freeze leftovers and reheat in the crock-pot with barbeque sauce for another meal.  Let me know if you give it a try :)

Crazy Dog T-shirt Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review a T-shirt from Crazy Dog T-Shirts.  I love T-shirts and especially ones that are soft, comfortable, and fit well.  I can say that this T-shirt has fulfilled all three of my requirements for an awesome T-shirt that I will wear again and again.  I have washed it a couple of times, and every time it comes out of the washer looking like new and feeling even more comfortable.  One of my favorite scary movies is The Shining so this Overlook Hotel Shirt was an easy choice for me.  If The Shining is not your favorite movie browse the Movie T-Shirt section, and you are bound to find the perfect shirt for your taste.  Crazy Dog offers so many choices at such great prices you cannot go wrong :)

Disclaimer: This product was sent to me for consideration to review. I was not paid for this review,  I am not affiliated with this company and the fact that the product was free absolutely does not influence my opinion.

Teacher's Appreciation Picture Frame Dry Erase Board

Well, Teacher Appreciation Week crept up on me, and I was very unprepared!  So after some thought and serious web searching I came up with this super easy and super cute idea!  Trust me if you are looking for a homemade gift for the teacher in your child's life it does not get any easier than this.

For the first step (sorry I do not have a picture, but I promise it is easy) you want to pick a picture frame.  I used a standard 8X10.  Any size will work but I thought this size gave the most space to write without it being overly big.  If you plan to hang it on the wall you may want to go bigger, but I envision the teacher propping it up on her desk.
Next you are going to want to pick a piece of scrapbook paper that coordinates with your theme.  My daughter liked this one the best because it looked like a chalk board.  You will want to cut the paper to the size of the frame.  I used the picture insert to trace the exact size and then cut it on the paper cutter.  Regular scissors will work.
Next you can add embellishments to your piece of scrap book paper.  My daughter chose red letters to spell out her teacher's name, but you could also use decorative stickers, buttons, or other cute embellishments.  Once you are done decorating your scrap book paper the next step is to slide it into the picture frame the same way you would a picture. 
Next I took a dry erase marker and wrapped it in Velcro and then put a tab of Velcro on the back of the picture frame in order to stick the dry erase marker directly to the back of the frame for easy access.  You could also put it on the top if this is to be a hanging dry erase board.

Lastly my daughter and I created a cute bow for the corner to accent the frame.  I wrote with dry erase on the front of the board so that you could see how it worked.  Before we wrapped the gift I wiped it clean and my daughter wrote a personalized message to her teacher on the front thanking her for being such a wonderful teacher :)

And that is how easy it really is!!  I am thinking about using this same formula for a Mother's Day gift.  Hopefully I will have a chance to work on it tomorrow...I will post my picture if I do :)

How to help tornado victims in Alabama

While I normally post deals, coupons, freebies, etc., I want to take a break from that tonight and let you all know about an area that can really use our help.  Tonight while reading Couponing to Disney (another blog)  I realized that Kristin from Couponing to Disney lives in an area of Alabama that was hard hit by the recent rash of tornadoes.  I do not know Kristin personally, but I am a long -time reader of her blog.  She has shared many ways that we can all help the victims of these horrible tornadoes, and she has given her personal assurance that anything you send will be distributed directly to those who need it the most.  Please consider helping in any way that you can...even used items would be a blessing to the victims.  Thank you for taking the time to read this, and no need to worry I promise to post more great deals, freebies, and coupons tomorrow :)

 Ways to help:
Copied from Couponing to Disney
Online: You can ship items directly to the church via Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. A few people have ordered cases of diapers, wipes and even food. Anything that you want to send would be appreciated!
Share it: Please feel free to share this information via your blog, email, Facebook, Twitter, whatever. The more people that know of this option, the better!
Used items: We will gladly accept used clothing, shoes, and household items. Please use your own judgment on if they are in good shape or not.
Wednesday my town was hit by a tornado. We suffered loss of homes, businesses, vehicles, etc. Praise the Lord we did not suffer many losses of life. Unfortunately, it wasn’t over. Later in the day, more tornadoes touched the ground in Alabama killing at least 250 people. They are reporting that the tornadoes were EF3, EF4 and EF5s (which is the worst kind).
Southerners are in dire need of some of the most basic necessities and I am working with my local church to start an online donation drive to help the victims of these storms. If you have any items that you would love to mail to us, we will gladly take them. Here are a few things that we are in need of:
New items:
Can openers
dog collars and leashes
pet beds for the shelters
paper plates and plastic silverware
Previously listed items:
dishwashing soap
laundry detergent
hand sanitizer
clothing in all sizes
shoes in all sizes
small toys for displaced children
ziploc bags
bandaids and other first aid products
femine products
baby formula
baby food
toilet paper
individual juices
pet food and treats
We will gladly take anything that you are willing to send.
You can mail your donations to my church. We will ensure they get into the right hands. You have my personal guarantee that all donations will be distributed:
Disaster Relief
c/o First Baptist Church of Moody
902 Church Street
Moody, AL 35004
If you would like to send a monetary donation, please memo your check as Disaster Relief.
And above all, we request your prayers. God bless!
