Cuban Ropa Vieja
Really good flavor and liquid to meat ratio with the following adjustments: Salt/pepper the meat before searing, add a pinch of oregano, use more cumin, and omit the 8 oz. tomato sauce. I cooked on low for 7 hrs, but the meat still came out kind of chewy, and definitely stringy. Might try a different cut next time, since flank steak is not known for its tenderness.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili
A great, simple chili recipe. I use plenty of chili powder and a couple tsp. cumin instead of a chili spice mix. Yum!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce
Fantastic flavor combination! Definitely double the sauce. May also want to tenderize your chx breasts a little with a meat pulverizer, or use tenderloin cutlets.
