Slow-Cooked Barbecued Pork on Buns
I really enjoyed this recipe, and with only two people in the house, we had plenty of leftovers. I got a little bit creative; instead of using garlic powder, I used 3 minced garlic cloves (because I love fresh garlic), and I wanted to do pulled pork, so I didn't slice it at the beginning. I also sadly found that after I got all my ingredients in, my slow cooker didn't work, so... another way to cook this is to put the roast in a baking dish in the oven at 275 for about 6-8 hours. I was skeptical on the sauce with so much ketchup, but I thought it turned out great! Maybe next time, I'll do half BBQ sauce, half ketchup.

Pear Cherry Streusel Pie
This was one of the first pies I ever made, and it turned out to be the life of the holiday party I served it at- no one believed it was homemade. I did get a little bit creative with the ingredients though. I substituted 1/2 c. cherry pie filling for the dry cherries, and I added a pinch of cinnamon as well. I think my next experiment will be to add crushed sliced almonds to the streusel top...
