Pulled Pork Meatloaf
Pulled pork roast is a huge hit around our house and last year, my son asked for a pulled pork "meatloaf" for his birthday dinner. He told me he thought it just "sounded good, Mom." I'd never heard of such a recipe and finally came across one. It was an even bigger hit than our pulled pork sandwich recipe! This recipe is almost exactly the same as the one we found a year ago, only difference is our original recipe calls for 4 cups of pulled pork and I don't chop the pork up further, just leave it shredded. 'Tis easy to add or take away veggies from the loaf, just listen to your tastebuds. Whether you use 3 cups or 4 cups of pulled pork, do keep with the 2 eggs. I typically make two loaves using a total of 8 cups of shredded pork and 4 eggs. We always make this recipe using our favorite mustard BBQ sauce made with balsamic vinegar (not found on this site yet) along with Sweet Restaurant Slaw (found on This is a wonderful recipe; folks may be surprised just how good!

Mexican Tinga
A friend gave me her tinga recipe years ago and is almost identical to Fredda's. It is now an oft-requested menu item around our home. If short on time, an already baked rotisserie chicken is super easy to shred. Our preference in preparing the chicken breasts is to poach them until almost done and then shred into the sauce mixture for a final simmer of flavors. Thankfully, we were advised early on about the power of chipotle peppers in the adobe sauce. After making tinga numerous times, we've slowly increased the chipotle pepper to sauce ratio. I tend to make more sauce than the recipe calls for my simply adding another can of stewed tomatoes. IF EVER TOO HOT - Add honey. I now keep my honey jar right at hand when making this treat. You have to taste test it, right? And if too hot, immediately dab honey on your tongue. Then add honey, little bit at a time, to the tinga mixture. Those mild mannered tongues in your family will thank you! Honey is a better treatment for "heat on the tongue" than milk or bread, in our opinion. Thank you for this recipe treat! Oh - if anyone in your family thinks they "hate" onions, try pureeing one and then cooking the pureed onion in a bit of olive oil with nutmeg (yes - nutmeg!). This will temper the oniony taste and, chances are, they'll never even notice that you've added it to the sauce mixture.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake
Loved the idea of my slow cooker doing all the work without heating up our oven on a hot summer day and so went to town on this recipe last Sunday. Three hours in a 6-quart slow cooker on low turned into four and then plus hours until I finally gave up on getting the cake cooked through. My son and I ate around the edges and found the texture, flavor and moist factors all heavenly. However, the middle remained the consistency of unset pudding. Still love the idea and plan on making once again but on medium heat in my slow cooker. I've also considered purchasing a newer slow cooker as the one I have may not be heating to the appropriate levels. Am giving 4 stars as I have faith that this recipe can be mastered!
