I can’t take all the credit for this idea, my husband came up with it but now it has become a favorite in our house because they are sooo good! You will not be disappointed, all you need is some pulled pork to start you off. You can find the recipe for my version here. For more options for your pulled pork, don’t miss my Pulled Pork Potato Skins or my Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese! [Read more…]
Pregnancy is a wonderful time, you anxiously await your new little baby and read all the baby books. There are some things that those books don’t cover though, here’s a list of what you should be aware of. [Read more…]
Pulled pork is something that I enjoy making regularly. It’s tasty and versatile. I make this in my crock pot so this is good to make if you have a few hours to let the pork really cook and get tender. Some people like to slow cook this with soda but I prefer spices alone. This is the stand alone recipe I use, I make this and use it for my Pulled Pork Calzones and Pulled Pork Potato Skins. This recipe is very versatile. [Read more…]
Children are cute but man can they stink up a place. I’m sure I’m not the only who notices how the smell from the diaper pail can start to spread throughout the whole house and after awhile the smell stays even when it’s empty. Here is a way to clean your pail that stops the stench and keeps the pail smelling….well as good as a diaper pail can. [Read more…]
I hope you all had a happy new year! The first post of 2014 is for a smoky homemade BBQ sauce. I used to always have a bottle of sauce in my fridge but realized one day in the middle of dinner that I forgot to stock up. I tried making my own and it has been a staple ever since. It’s much better than the bottled stuff. This is great for any kind of meat but really brought out the flavor in BBQ chicken. [Read more…]
As 2013 draws to a close and I look back at the last year I’m very grateful to those of you who have started reading this blog and have followed me in the last few months. I think we all know that starting a blog is not easy and getting up and just starting the blog itself is the first step. For those of you who are thinking of starting a blog yourself, DO IT! With a new year comes a new outlook. If you want to try something, try it. You can’t say that it didn’t work out if you never even tried. I felt myself getting burned out with the holidays so I took a break from here to recharge. I have several new posts coming up for the new year and I look forward to reading your thoughts on them.
My goals for the next year are to continue to be as healthy as I can with my pregnancy, focus on being the best wife and mother I can be and to put work into Domesticated Wild Child but to remember that I started this to be a fun hobby, not a job that I dislike. If I need a break I will take it but I encourage you all to continue with the e-mails and social media, it keeps me motivated. Do the things you love, work when you have to and use your free time to make you happy.
I wish you all a wonderful and happy 2014!
My Facebook has been on fire today with the news that Phil Robertson of A&E’s Duck Dynasty has been suspended over remarks made in an interview with GQ magazine. Now normally I would read the comments and let people have their opinions, but there is a glaring comment that keeps jumping out at me. “His rights as an American are being trampled!”
No, they are not. [Read more…]
Christmas time is a special time of year. People are happy and excited, stores and houses are decorated amazingly and a ton of great movies come on. There is nothing better during a cold, snowy night then cuddling under a blanket and watching a classic. Here are my top 10 Christmas movies to watch during the holiday season! [Read more…]
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I’m guessing that you are like me and either all turkeyed out or almost there so I wanted to post a non-Thanksgiving recipe like meatloaf. I love making meatloaf this way. It’s individually portioned so there is no giant loaf to deal with. I use ramekins instead of a pan and it makes great and easy dishes right out of the oven.

I know that I have been MIA lately. I’ve been super busy with travel, work and just being exhausted from being pregnant. But I am back and have a few new posts in the works so stay tuned.
This “Blogs I Love” segment is about Budget Savvy Diva. She is fabulous at finding amazing deals and free goodies. Thanks to her I have received a free Snapple iced tea K-cup sampler for my Keurig, a free magazine subscription, a great deal on a Christmas present for my son and a coupon for Buy 2 Get 2 Free at Yankee Candle. She is a genius and if you follow her on social media you will get constant updates about new deals coming up. She is also a cook and comes up with great recipes on her site too. Bottom line, if you are looking to save money (who isn’t), go see the diva.
