Cochinita Pibil MéxiCanada! | Mexican Pulled Pork | Slow Cooker Recipe Hop

Mexican Pulled Pork | Cochinita Pibil Recipe | Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Autumn is my absolute favourite season for cooking, because I can pull out my slow cooker and let it work its magic on our weekly meals! Stews, soups, slow-cooked roasts, and of course… pulled pork! I discovered the deliciousness that is pulled pork as an adult, thanks to my husband’s Mexican roots. There are many variations on Mexican pulled pork, but the most famous is probably cochinita pibil, a specialty from the Yucatan.

This recipe incorporates achiote paste, which is used in a lot of Mexican cooking. Achiote can be bought at Mexican specialty stores or restaurants, ordered online (just do a quick google search), or sometimes even found in speciality grocery stores. It is also called anatto, and is a paste that combines several different spices. Definitely worth having in your pantry! I usually just line my suitcase with about 15 boxes of achiote when I come home from Mexico. I swear they must think I’m smuggling the stuff in when they scan my bags… I wonder what I should call my foodie smuggling operation? #OrganizedThyme 

[Whatever, I laughed.]

Mickey Mouse Inspired Treats

Summer is drawing to a close, and with it, those last few precious family vacation days. I hope that everyone has had at least a little time this summer to relax with their loved ones! I am headed back to work after my year of maternity leave… tomorrow! (And I am SO excited for my new teaching adventure.) Today’s Spectacular Summer Blog Hop post (the third-to-last) is from Crafting a Family, who has not one but TWO Mickey Mouse inspired treats to share with you (along with a printable gift tag). 

Mickey Mouse Inspired Treats

Our little girl has just started daycare, which opens up a whole new world (if you’ll forgive the pun) of Disney-inspired paraphernalia. Birthday themes, treats, backpacks, and of course the movies themselves. These Mickey Mouse treats are definitely getting pinned for when it’s my turn to bring something cute for her daycare friends. 🙂

Delicious and easy Roasted Red Pepper Dip recipe | red pepper and garlic dip with cream cheese and sour cream | flourishandknot.com

Way back in June when I revealed my Canada Day BBQ set-up, I promised you my Roasted Red Pepper Dip recipe. I always like to test out a recipe a few times before I put it on the blog, and I am happy to report that this dip has been a real crowd-pleaser at several gatherings this summer! So, I feel confident sharing it today as part of the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop. 

This dip is ridiculously easy to whip up, and it can even be made sans oven on a grill if the weather is too hot! With only a few basic ingredients, it’s great for unexpected guests. 🙂
