Slow Cooker Carnitas
A total hit with my family! My 2 and 5 year old and my Husband loved it. They called me a Star after serving this one with taco fixings! For a 6.5 lb. pork shoulder blade roast, I did triple each of the seasonings, leaving the salt and cinnamon as recommended for that size. And added fresh cilantro to the crockpot per our preference. Cooked on low for 10 hours. Just before serving, shredded it and put in the oven @ 400 degrees for 20 min with a cup of broth poured around it to crisp it. Looking forward to making it again soon! This was super affordable to make with plenty to freeze!

Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwich
A smash hit with my 2 year old! We love this with organic peanut butter spread on one cinnamon whole wheat Eggo waffle topped with thinly sliced apple. Then, serve it folded in half or cut into fours.
