Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I
Let me preface this by saying I hate coleslaw. At least I thought I did and so did one of the guests I served this to. But my goodness, this is a killer recipe! I omitted the onions because this recipe was to be served over Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with thinly sliced onions as an additional optional topping. I also thought it'd be safer for my picky kids. My eldest ate it straight out of the bowl, just couldn't get enough of it. Heck, even I ate it straight from the bowl! Yes, the recipe is runny but just use tongs to serve and you're fine.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
I was really hesitant about this recipe at first (root beer?!) but I decided to try it out because of the rave reviews. Huge hit! I'm a picky eater, one of our guests is a picky eater, and we have 5 young girls that are all picky eaters and this stuff was devoured. I doubled the poundage of the recipe but used a pork shoulder which is much less expensive. Cooked skin on (in case anyone else is confused by that. I wasn't sure if I should leave it on or not. Leave it on, remove after cooking before shredding) and it took only about 6 hours (but my slow cooker runs high). Admittedly I thought I had made a terrible mistake making this recipe to entertain friends with by the smell. It wasn't awful but a very interesting odor (it is pork cooking in root beer, after all). But once I got it drained, shredded, and the BBQ sauce on it (we used our favorite: Garland Jack's Secret Six Original) all our mouths were watering. I put it back in the slow cooker for an hour on low with the BBQ sauce and served with Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I on top; though I omitted the onions from the recipe in favor of thinly sliced onions as an additional optional topping. It was so good my husband requested it for Father's Day.

Honey Baked Chicken II
AMAZING! I cut the butter in half (1/4 cup) and used olive oil instead (we have dairy allergies in the family) and besides using a bigger bird (pushing 5lbs) I kept everything else the same. The family wants to make this a weekly meal and I'm not arguing with them.
