  1. HI Ada-Marie, I’m always up for a new and yummy recipe. So funny – I visit DALS often and just this past weekend, I was catching up on her blog posts and I saw one of your recommended recipes. I was like, “Hey, is that the Ada-Marie I know?” So funny. The blogging world is so cool like that. Don’t you love DALS – it has been such a lifesaver for us when I’m completely clueless as to what to make for dinner! 🙂

  2. Great idea! My favorite easy & delicious recipe:
    Thai pork w/ peanut sauce

    Pork tenderloin
    2 red peppers
    ½ – ¾ cup teriyaki sauce (depending on how big the pork tenderloins are)
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
    2 cloves garlic, minced or 2 teaspoons +/- garlic powder
    ¼ – ½ cup peanut butter
    Lime juice
    Crushed peanuts

    1. Slice the red peppers into strips
    2. Put the pork, peppers, teriyaki, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, and garlic into cooker
    3. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours (or on high for about 6 hours)
    4. Remove pork from cooker and cut / pull apart pork.
    5. Add peanut butter to the liquid in the cooker, and stir well to melt and blend the peanut butter.
    6. Return pork to sauce and mix together
    7. Serve over rice
    8. Top with a squirt of lime juice and crushed peanuts
