Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios
These were delicious. It got a thumbs up from my husband which is not easy when it comes to Brussels sprouts! I followed other's advice and caramelized the onions before adding the red wine and I cut the sprouts in half before steaming. The only other change I made was I substituted brown sugar for white.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches
Thanks to ginger, I followed her advice and used a pork butt instead and I cooked it for 10 hours, shredded it and refrigerated overnight and reheated for 2 hours the next day. My changes: I used 2 cans of beef broth to cover it better then drained all but about a 1/4 cup of the broth before refrgerating. The next day I added the bbq sauce (I prefer Maull's sweet & smoky) and also a generous splash of beer. Turned out great and making it the day before was super easy for entertaining.

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup
I used almost a full head of cauliflower and left out the potatoes. I added a chicken boullion cube to the 3/4 cup water. But that wasn't enough water to cover all the vegetables so I added extra chicken broth. We like spicier foods, so I added some red pepper flakes to the boiling pot. I didn't want it to be too chunky so I mashed a little bit with a potato masher after boiling. As someone else suggested, I added a pinch of thyme. Also I used garlic salt instead of regular salt and I doubled the amount of cheese. Turned out great!
