Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

This is a fun and delicious recipe for these hot summer nights. Serve over ice cream or a warm fudgey cake. It is SUPER fast and easy and mmmmmm.....

1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
1 Package Chocolate chips (12 oz)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla

Heat milk, chocolate and sugar to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Stir in butter and vanilla until mixture is smooth and creamy. Serve warm over ice cream, cake or brownies. Store in refrigerator up to 4 weeks.

Pulled pork sandwiches

I got this idea from my friend, Jennifer. I made them last night and they were oh so yummy. My mom makes these occasionally with a beef roast. Just as good.

Take a pork tenderloin and toss it in a crock pot. Let it simmer all day so that it is really tender. You can put BBQ sauce on it all day or add later. I did a little of both.
About 1 hour before you serve, take the meat out and shred it with a fork. I drained the juices because it was very watery. Put the meat back in the crock pot and pour BBQ sauce over top. Serve on rolls. Mmmm....
Jennifer insists that you use "Sweet Baby Ray's" BBQ sauce. It was yummy.
