Slow Cooker Carnitas
I used broth and beer, since I have a kegerator and I figured what the heck! I also added a sliced up orange (peel and all)to the cooking broth. After shredding I recommend spreading pork over a foiled cookie sheet and drizzling reduced cooking liquids over the pork and then broiling in the oven for a few minutes to crisp it up. Serve with plenty of homemade guac, diced red onions with cilantro and lime, and Mexican table cream for drizzling!! Delicious!!

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce
It turned out all right, but after reading other reviews I guess I was expecting something more amazing. I brought it to an office party and used the lime tortilla chips as dippers, and I think it was just too much lime. Not the best to make if people aren't a fan of sour cream as well. I felt like the quantities were unbalanced, maybe more tomatillo?

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup
This was a great soup!! I cut the squash in half and spooned out the seeds. I then brushed the meat with a little olive oil and placed in the oven at 375 for 45 min. Once it was out I spooned the meat into the onions and garlic and let them simmer together for about 5 min. I threw in half an apple peeled, cored and sliced into the squash mixture and then I eyeballed the amount of broth I put in so that it was still pretty thick before I put it in the blender. After I blended it smooth I poured about 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream into the blender and blended again. Once it was back in the pot I added a little more broth until it was the consistency I wanted and then added a little more sugar and the other half of the apple sliced. It turned out AMAZING!! The slices of apple really add something, and keep the soup from being texturally similar to baby food. the hubby loved it :)
