This recipe is simple, yet so delicious!  Pizza dough full of flavor, slow cooked pulled pork, veggies, cheese and serious butter love… Perfect!  Why wouldn’t I share the recipe, right?  Hubby and I try to make something special during the weekends.  Since the weather is cooler, it gets a little trickier to use our outside roasting box.  So, instead, we pulled out our roasting box that sits right on our counter.  Everything about pork cooking inside is a plus, especially the way the house smells during the cooking process.  Adding it to our calzones was beyond delicious.  Who wants to share this huge Pulled Pork Calzone with me?

Cranberries are finally on the shelves here in North Carolina and this girl is jumping up and down.  If you like apple cranberry juice, then you will understand why apple cranberry scones will become your new favorite treat.  These scones scream Fall in a serious way with each bite you take.  For the main ingredient I used amaretto apple butter made at my family’s apple barn in Freeland, Michigan.  Then add the cranberries to provide that burst of tartness with each bite.  I think these may be my most favorite scones I have made here at CafeTerraBlog.  Who would like a slice of Amaretto Apple Cranberry Scones to go with your coffee or tea?
