the first dessert I baked for my then-fiance was red velvet cake, and he was hooked...I love to cook, and my 3 daughters are following in my footsteps. This is a collection of recipes that we love. Feel free to comment - good, bad, indifferent - if you try any, let me know how they turn out.

French Dip in the Crock Pot

This is delicious - you can use chuck roast or pork shoulder.

chuck roast or pork, fat trimmed (I've done anywhere from 3-6 lbs)
onions, sliced (I used 5 large for 6 lbs meat)
garlic, peeled, left in whole cloves (I used ~10 cloves for 6 lbs. meat)
small amount peppercorns
beef stock, enough to fill crock halfway up meat

Place onions in bottom of crock; add meat, garlic and peppercorns. Pour in stock, cover, and cook on low 8-12 hours or until meat falls apart when forked.

Remove meat, separate fat and shred. Pour liquid through sieve and let fat rise; spoon off fat. (I put mine in the fridge for a while until the fat hardens and it's easier to remove.)

Serve on crusty rolls with onions and juice for dipping.
