Heaven! The hardest part about setting up pictures like these is not taking a bite out of the food mid placement. I literally had to stop myself because it was just oh so tempting to nibble on it as I worked.

2 lbs of boneless pork rib meat
36 fl oz of your favorite soda (I used Dr. P)
1 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of lime juice
1 tsp of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Sides and toppings:
1 pack of tortillas
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup of cilantro
1 can of black beans
2 cups of mexican rice

Place the frozen pork rib meat into a crockpot, pour in the soda, cover with the lid and place it in the fridge over night. The next morning add in the brown sugar, lime juice, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Set it in the crock pot base, turn on low, and let it cook for about 8 hours. After the allotted time (when I got home from work) shred the pork with a fork and knife and let it continue to cook for another 30 minutes. Then serve with your desired toppings and sides. Enjoy! Your husband/boyfriend/invisible friend will thank you!


Four delicious juicing recipes for your recipe arsenal.
Don’t forget about the newest, Pineapple Carrot Juice.
I do believe there’s a juicing revolution going on around here.
Beet Juice
5 carrots – peeled
4 stalks of celery
2 beet – peeled and sliced
1 apple – cored and sliced
Grapefruit Juice
4 mandarins – peeled
1 grapefruit – peeled
1 lemon – peeled
1 apple – cored and sliced
Green Juice
5 mandarins – peeled
3 handfuls of spinach
1 apple – cored and sliced
Green Lemonade
5 stalks of celery
2 handfuls of spinach
1 apple – cored and sliced
1 lemon – peeled


Some tricks for beginners:
1) do one veggie and the rest fruits, sweeter is safer at first
2) stick with foods you like, if you dislike beets don’t juice them right away
3) juiced bananas can be weird, throw them in the blender afterwards instead
4) if you want to do a ton of veggies always add an apple or orange to add some sweet

For those wondering, I have the Breville multi-speed juicer. Here’s a less expensive version also.
