Hi everybodaaaay!!! Soooo excited for the weekend, I'm able to spend some time with the family and just relax. This is the perfect weekend to enjoy the people you love and why not throw some delish food in there as well! So I've been spending alot of time with my favorite family I babysit for and me and the boys, Jack and Joe made some fabulous Double Choco Chip Cookies. They are all chocolate lovers so we had to make something for all the people out there who cant have enough of it. Also! We've been wanting some Pulled Pork Sandwiches over here and my lovely mother made some,, crockpot style. So easy and with a mouthwatering Peach BBQ Sauce. Sounds amazing right?? I know, I know. She topped it with a Blue Cheese Slaw and served it up with some kettle chips. This is the perfect meal to serve when you're in a rush and want some good ole BBQ! Enjoy!!
