Meatiest Vegetarian Chili From Your Slow Cooker
This recipe is an excellent chili all on its own but can also be used as a base to do some personalizing. I made it with morningstar crumbles instead of the tofu. We also like our chili with chunks of tomatoes so I added to 15oz cans of diced tomatoes with the juice (which makes it go further and balances out the thickness the crumbles add to it). if you want it with more (like my hubbie) cut the chili powder in half and add a mccormick HOT chili spice packet. I've even made it with 1 cup of guinness stout and it gives it a great depth of flavor (turn the veggies up to a high head at the end of cooking them, add the guiness & cook for a few minutes).

Amish White Bread
I gave this five stars b/c the bread itself is amazing and easy. however, if you are using regular active dry yeast and NOT a rapid rise kind, the rise time needs to to be increased. Otherwise you will get a denser bread. I've found 3 hrs for the first rise and 1 hr 15 min for the second. It is definitely worth the extra time!
