Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker
This is a very delicious basic pulled pork recipe for anyone out there who haven't tried kalua pig before. I have read reviews of people saying that it's too salty and even bland tasting, again, for those who have never tried kalua pig before, this recipe is just right with the actual Hawaiian Red Clay Salt or the Black Salt. If you decide to use normal table salt or sea salt, you will definitely find it very salty. To address the blandness, what I do is to add 1 1/2 tablespoon of hickory liquid smoke and that gives it the extra smokiness to the pig. An excellent suggestion was to add 2 bananas slit open and placed on top. If you decide to do that, make sure it's not over ripe or spotted, organic bananas would be great. The bananas will turn black and your kalua pig will have a sweet banana smell and very subtle "island" flavour that will keep your guests wondering what created that fruity sweet aroma. Now again if you find it bland, then I would suggest adding bbq sauce as you eat it or, simply make a BBQ pulled pork instead which would require a much more lengthy ingredient list :) One radical change that I have done twice out of the 5 times I have made this recipe, is that I use the pork sirloin roast from Costco instead of the shoulder/butt roast as stated in the recipe. At the end of the cooking, the texture is as tender and juicy as the shoulder roast but I noticed far less fatty oils in the juice. I also cook this for 10-12 hours on low. Simple cooking tastes the best!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread
You have to try this recipe! Delicious sweet loaf with a slight chewy texture. A suggestion, use 2 big bowls, mix all in first bowl, then after punching down dough and adding additional butter/honey, transfer to the kitchenaid mixer bowl for kneading. Wash the first bowl and brush/spray with oil for 2nd rise. The only thing I did different was using a kitchenaid mixer to knead the dough. I used the dough hook and kneaded the dough for about 3 mins at 1 and 2 speeds. As instructed on the recipe, you must add flour to prevent dough from sticking to your hands/dough hook. Use the 2 speed to pick up added flour on bottom of bowl and do stop the mixer and use a spatula to remove dough to "reset" the kneading. After brushing the baked bread with butter, I put the bread back into the oven for about a minute or so and that gave it a nice golden crust. As mentioned by another member, I also put the extra dough in the freezer to bake later. I baked it for 30 minutes for those wondering.

Creamy Mushroom Soup
This is a delicious and easy recipe for anyone! I also substituted cinnamon with nutmeg to get that nice kick. Since I did not have cream, used 1 1/2 cup 2% milk instead (it's also a lighter option). Another ingredient substituted was shallot, instead used 1 1/2 tbsp of dried chopped onion (from Costco). Even with a few substitutions, the soup was delicious and will definitely make again! We put the soup over baked chicken cutlet and dinner was taken care of :)
