Allie's Awesome Easy Spice Cake
Wonderful cake! I only had homemade peach pie filling and didn't have nuts. I reduced the sugar by half a cup- per reviewer suggestions. I used 2 and a half cups of peach pie filling- and omitted the cloves entirely because we are not a fan of cloves.. The rest is PERFECTION! It baked in 50 minutes, did not stick either and the house smelled lovely! I think those who had problems with it being sticky is because store bought pie fillings can contain corn syrup and starch which mine didn't have. In any case it's a wonderful cake and it will be my go to spice cake for this years holidays! I will probably make it with peach again since I still have more of the filling but I bet it will be amazing with it's original apple filling too and the nuts will certainly make it better. Thanks Allie for suggesting this cake :) It's a hit with my family!---UPDATE: OMG! it is %200 better the next day. You can taste the fruit much more when it sits longer. If making for a party make a day in advance. YUM!

Simple Carnitas
I read all the reviews good and bad, yes All ! it was my first time cooking this and I already had concerns about the amount of salt and whether the orange rinds would make the meat bitter. BUT it turned out delicious! I adjusted it for our taste as follows: fOR 2.5 pounds meat (I did not cut in pieces) I added 1 scant tablespoon salt and 1/3 teaspoon cumin and 1 small orange. I cooked for exactly 3 hours and it was delicious and melt in your mouth tender! I will freeze the extra portions for tacos enchiladas, sandwiches and omelets. Totally Yum.

Quiche
Although I had had Quiche many times I had never made one. I found this recipe to make something savory with my extra pie crust. I had all the ingredients. The only change I made was adding about a third of a cup chopped red bell pepper that was leftover from a salad. It was delicious! I will make this again!
