Slow Cooker Carnitas
Delicious - I left out the cinnamon due to personal preference, added onion powder and tripled the rest of the spices for a 6 1/2 pound roast. Made this the day before I planned on serving - after refrigerating over night, I skimmed a lot of fat off the surface. Baked it at 400 in a shallow layer on a cookie sheet as suggested by many others, (After which even more fat could be poured off) - leaves the meat very tasty without having to eat so much fat. May try this with a leaner cut of meat in the future. This is a great versatile recipe -- cook a big roast and have meat for several meals for tacos, burritos, add BBQ sauce and serve on buns, I even put some on a salad. If there are leftovers, I bet they would freeze well.

Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken
left out the cinnamon and allspice as we don't care for it in savory dishes so this probably made it very unauthentic. Subbed a few shakes of paprika and turmeric. Used greek yogurt, so my marinade was a bit thick, but I wanted to try a yogurt marinade to see if it kept the chicken moist - this definitely did. Family gobbled it up.

Aw-some Cole Slaw
Very good basic recipe. Due to personal preference, I went a little light on the mayo and sugar, and a little heavier on the vinegar (used white vinegar). Did not have lemon juice so left it out. Added a few shakes of dried minced onion since I was too lazy to cut up fresh and a tablespoon or so of chia seeds for extra crunch (I think my grandmother used to use celery seeds...) Serving it with BBQ pork sandwiches tonight.
