Pressure Cooker Beef Chili
This recipe is a KEEPER!!! Thank you so much, Chef John. This has really hit the spot for my chili fix today. I made this earlier and it was perfect, so easy to make. I also made your recipe for Tzaziki sauce to go on top of it! By the way, I had to tweak the spice down because my dad can't handle hot food. If you can't handle those spicy chili powders that he adds, just use plain chili powder only. I also increased the cumin and oregano just a touch, to counteract the other missing chili powder flavors. I also used beef broth instead of the water as well. That was just my preference, is all. Enjoy guys, this is something you'll never regret making. People at my culinary school would love to eat this.

Healthier Chantal's New York Cheesecake
This was missing a lot of flavor! This recipe wasn't that great of a "healthy" modification. Save your money and ingredients and don't make this recipe. Just make Chantal's original recipe and have a smaller slice, you'll be much happier with a slice of heaven!

Cream of Broccoli Soup III
When I was on a diet, this soup was my go-to. I omitted the milk and replaced it with more chicken stock. Delicious, and fairly healthy. If you're concerned about salt content, whatever. do your thing.
