Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Slow Cooker (crockpot) Mexican Pulled Pork Tortillas

I had 3 big pork chops that I didn't know what to do with so I thought I'd put them in the slow cooker and let her do the work today.

You could probably use a pork roast if that's what you have. Oh, and my chops were still frozen but the recipe turned out perfectly!

Slow Cooker (crockpot) Mexican Pulled Pork Tortillas
Makes 12 tortillas (depending on how much meat you put in)

  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 3 1" thick boneless pork chops (about 2 1/2 lbs of pork)
  • 1 cup of your favourite barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Mexican seasoning blend
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 sweet bell pepper, sliced (I used yellow today)
  • 1 recipe Homemade Flour Tortillas or Homemade Flour Tortillas 2
  1. Place the onions and water in the slow cooker and place the pork chops on top. Mix all other ingredients and pour over the pork. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
  2. Use two forks and shred the pork chops right in the slow cooker. Add the peppers and stir it up. Cook for another 30 minutes or until peppers are tender. Serve on tortillas.
  • Barbecue sauce can be sweet, so if you want to cut the sweetness, serve this with some sour cream. But I like it just the way it is!
