Honey Apricot Pork Chops
I followed the advice of other reviewers and added some extra honey. It tasted nice, but I'm not sure it was to our preferences. I think it's unlikely that I'll make this again.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
I recommend making this with ~ 3lb pork shoulder instead of the recommended tenderloin. I used a 2lb one, and the meat to sauce ratio was not quite right. I didn't read the directions and added the BBQ sauce and root beer at the beginning, as well as a bit (about 2-3Tbsp) of white vinegar, to cut some sweetness. It turned out well. No need to drain this recipe, which was good. I served it on buns with crunchy fried onions, which made a nice contrast in texture.

Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts
I decided to make this recipe after eating an amazing cashew chicken dish at a Halifax restaurant. This recipe was good, but not as close to what I had in mind as I'd hoped. Like the restaurant I went to, I quartered two whole oranges rather than using water chestnuts; other then this change, I prepared the recipe as directed. The mixture of foods was good, but I found the sauce more bland than I'd hoped for. I will try something similar again, but will research more into possible sauce ingredients first, and will plan to make more sauce.
