Pigapalooza 2014

Each year we host a big Pig Roast to celebrate the end of summer/beginning of fall and our wedding anniversary.  We have been married for 4 years now and I have to say that I have married a good man who I know will take care of me for the rest of my life.  I love him to the moon and back!  Enough of that mushy stuff!!    

My husband smokes the pig in the smoker that he built and it always turns out really delicious.  We shred the shoulders and make a big mess of pulled pork doused in my almost famous barbeque sauce.  People actually think I should bottle it!  It is a big hit and the highlight of the party. The rest of the pork is cut up and served in all it's smoky goodness.  
I also make Baked Exploration's Honey Cornbread Muffins....yummmm, homemade applesauce (you gotta have applesauce with pork, right?)  All the guests bring delicous covered dishes and we have a grand time!

I also make a bevy of sweets and desserts! 
 The desserts, my friends, are the reason I am here!

This year I made my traditional Sunflower Cupcakes, Brooksters and Brown Butter Snickerdoodles.  Along with those tempting treats;  Apple Pie Cheesecakes,  Banoffee Tarts, Gluten-free Chocolate Piggy Cupcakes, Oatmeal Pumpkin Cream Pies, S'Mores Macarons, Sunflower and Piggy Sugar Cookies and I tried to make some adorable little piggy buns.  
It is alot of work but I absolutely love doing this every year!
