Pastelon de Platano Maduro (Dominican-Style Yellow Plantain Pie)
We make this in Puerto Rico too! Most of my family doesn't mash the plantain, they slice it and layer the bottom. I have eaten it both ways and it's so yummy!!

Greek Pasta with Tomatoes and White Beans
I like this recipe because it's simple and versatile. I had to tweak a few things because, I couldn't find the Italian style tomatoes and I used half kale/half spinach (because the kale was about to go). The *major* change I made was making it all using one pot. LOL Made the sauce while pasta was straining. :) Great recipe.

Slow Cooker Barbeque
I used a round of pork and Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. I didn't have onions so I used onion soup mix and it came out SO GOOD! It wasn't greasy & maybe next time I will try it with beef.
