Key Lime Pie VI

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
I tried this recipe twice. I used a flaky tart crust both times to keep it from being too sweet. I also used bottled lime juice both times and think fresh would have been better. The first time I followed the recipe and found I needed extra corn starch to thicken after adding the lime juice. It was also SO sweet that I threw it out and made a second one. The second time I used 1.5c water and 1c lime juice, plus added a half tablespoon extra corn starch in the beginning and it was MUCH better. I also made fresh whipped cream instead of the meringue as it was still very sweet. I guess in the end I just don't like my deserts sickly sweet, even with a zing of lime. Here's a picture prior to the whipped cream!

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
Won't make this again. I followed the recipe and when it was half way done cooking I tasted it. There was NO flavor, just as another reviewer commented. With the number of ingredients, I was perplexed but I added more chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. The flavor improved dramatically. I let it cook the rest of the time and then had a bowl. While this isn't bad, it's not great either. I'm not sure if it's the tomato paste and basil combo (which as an Italian, I love!) but it's just got a strange taste to it, as another reviewer also warned. However, unlike yet another reviewer, I did like the texture of the celery in it. That's about all I took away from this. So sad.

Pakistani Spicy Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This is a really good dish! I would add some additional chili pepper and probably a few more tomatoes as well; however, it has a really good base to get started. I love that it's healthy yet hardy and full of flavor. It's not one of those vegetarian dishes that an hour after eating you feel like you need something else. This will make you happy!
