Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This was tasty! Needs quite a few modifications for my tastes, though. How can you have chili without beans? I added a can of kidney beans, a can of corn, lots more chili powder, lots of cumin, some sriracha sauce (we like our chili SPICY!), barbecue sauce, and a bit of peanut butter. Sounds weird, but is actually very good and very spicy. If you try the peanut butter, don't add too much! It can very easily overpower everything. ANYWAY, I love pumpkin and it really made the texture wonderful in this chili -- nice and thick. Will make this again next October, when I get a craving for everything pumpkin. :)

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This was *delicious*. I followed the recommendations from BAMBARBIE and L Sacher. I used a crust recipe from Joy of Cooking, which was actually very close to the one in this recipe, but didn't really roll out very well... maybe it needed more time to chill? Regardless, it ended up being very tasty & flaky. I pre-baked the crusts for a few minutes and brushed on egg whites to the insides of the base and both sides of the top. I omitted the mushrooms (my own preference), added a little bit more onion to the roux, steamed the carrots and celery, and boiled the potatoes in the broth for ~6 minutes. I also used bouillon cubes to make the broth. I agree, the filling this recipe makes could fill 2 pies... not a bad thing, though! I made a pie, 3 tiny pies in a muffin tin, and froze the rest of the filling. Quite a few modifications are necessary to improve the recipe... but a good base recipe nonetheless! Chicken pot pie at its finest.

Brownies III

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I'd like to give this 3.5, but oh well. These were pretty tasty... but all I can smell is all of the OIL that went into them! No chocolatey aroma that's usually present when I make brownies... just oil. Granted, I was trying to find a recipe that didn't call for butter since I was out, but still. Anyway, the brownies themselves weren't too incredibly oily... it was just a weird disconnect between the oil smell in the air and the taste, which was actually pretty good. The texture was just right, and I baked them for about 25 minutes. I also added some caramel on top after they'd been cooking for a few minutes, and swirled it in. I followed other users' recommendations and used less salt.
