Carnitas means 'little meats' and is traditionally fried then braised. This recipe is made much easier using the slow cooker but the results are just as tasty. This makes a great filling for tamales, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. This filling is also great combined with your favorite barbecue sauce and served on buns.
Fakes (pronounced 'Fah-kehs') is a staple in the Greek kitchen, and an especially filling meal. It is traditionally served with a drizzle of olive oil and lots of vinegar. Though the vinegar is of course optional, try it--it lifts the lentils and adds another dimension of flavor!
These fun and pretty gelatin 'deviled eggs' are made with fruity gelatin formed in an egg-shaped gelatin mold from the craft store and topped with a dollop of creamy filling for the 'yolk.'

A sweet-savory soy sauce marinade sets the stage for these cream cheese and green onion-stuffed salmon fillets. Oven-baked, and finished with a splash of teriyaki sauce and a sprinkling of sesame seeds, they guarantee applause for the cook.
Black beans mingle with onions, peppers, garlic, cornmeal, and spices in this tasty taco filling. Try it in burritos or as a dip for tortilla chips. No black beans? Red, pink, or pinto beans are great subs.
