Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
It's a good base recipe - and I have to admit I use it often. However, I choose to spice it up by throwing three minced jalapenos in it and bump up the chili powder to a full tablespoon - sometimes more. I remove the membranes and seeds from the jalapenos as my spouse can't handle too much heat and I shouldn't be handling too much - but if you like a bit of extra spice my advice is to keep the seeds and membranes in, add a bit more hot pepper sauce and maybe bump the chili powder up even further.

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
These brownies are very good, but I only gave 4 stars because I made some alterations to the recipe to get a taste/texture that I prefer. First, I only had unsalted butter, so I increased the amount of salt to 1 1/4 tsps. Second, rather than using unsweetened chocolate, I used 4 squares bittersweet and 2 squares semi sweet - and cut back the amount of sugar by two-three tbsp. And third, I only used two eggs instead of four because in my experience too many eggs gives brownies a more cake like consistency and I prefer the chewy, fudgy ones. I also omitted the nuts - and altogether I found that these brownies produced the PERFECT bar.
