Instant Pot Carnitas

Quick and easy with the use of an Instant Pot or pressure cooker, this tasty pork is incredibly tender and full of flavor with just the right amount of heat. Perfect as taco filling, I love it in a Quinoa or rice bowl as well. To make it in a slow cooker - follow the recipe and cook the meat on low for 6-8 hours. YUM

Red Lentil Soup with Ham

This easy, delicious soup is the perfect vehicle for a left over ham bone. The red lentils are delicate and light and the spice mixture adds a fantastic depth of flavor. If you don't love ham, omit it and/or substitute some shredded chicken.
