Fry Bread Tacos II
I only made the fry bread part of the recipe, and I tweaked it so that it became a cross between Navajo fry bread and Chinese scallion pancakes. I increased the salt to a full tablespoon and added about 1/4 cup of chopped scallions (green onions). Oh and I also added a tablespoon of olive oil before mixing, as suggested by another reviewer, even though olive oil is neither Navajo nor Chinese. I prefer the taste of Chinese scallion pancakes, but the texture of fry bread, and this was PERFECT. Yummers!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili
I left out the celery because I'm not fond of it, and heartachingly left out the bell peppers even though I love them, because my boyfriend doesn't. I also used a whole can of beer, because I didn't see the point of keeping half a can around... and I hate drinking the stuff so... in it went! Put in two tablespoons of bacon bits instead of one. Oh and used sriracha hot sauce instead of the usual tabasco because I'm Asian and it's our go-to hot sauce, hehe. I know chili tastes best the day after, but I couldn't help trying some out of the crock pot tonight with Ritz crackers... YUMMMMMMMMMMMMM! Can't wait for tomorrow! =D

Creamy Caramel Flan
Very very yummy. Didn't expect it it to be QUITE so thick; next time I'll use half a package of cream cheese. Took another reviewer's advice and poured the caramel into a pan that had been resting in the preheated oven. Also put the mixture through a strainer before pouring into pan to get out any remaining lumps of cream cheese.
