Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Fantastic! I have made the other hi-rated Roasted Red Pepper Hummus on this site, and this is FAR superior. I was looking for a replacement to the Trader Joe's version that they no longer sell, and this was exactly it. I love it! Oh, I did add a tablespoon of oil to get the consistency that I wanted, but that is my only modification. I've made it twice now, and it's about 1 juiced lemon and one big scoop of tahini... that makes it even easier. Thanks!

Chicken Pot Pie III
My first foray into the pot pie - this was very good! I made my own crust (allrecipes 'pot pie crust') and this filled a 11x7 dish perfectly. I think that the cream of celery flavor (I have never really used it in anything) came through a bit too strongly for me... I did use the Healthy Request version. I don't think it was the thyme, though I did reduce it a bit. I'll use this as a template for sure, but I don't care much for the full fat (+MSG) cream of potato that I used. Considering the amount of prep time and quality of product, this was a solid four stars and a great beginning. What more could you ask for in a recipe really, other than a full tummy and a great place to start tinkering. THANKS!

Crust for Veggie Pot Pie
Easy, simple. Came out flaky, just like I wanted. I did prick the bottom with a fork and throw it in the oven for 5 min (425) by itself before loading with pot pie. I can't say how much it helped, but the bottom wasn't the least bit soggy. (Once I filled it, I brought the heat down to 400 and cooked for 30 min with foil on the edges, 30 min without). THANKS! I will use this instead of buying for sure. EDIT: I've used this a second time, prebaking the bottom, and then just putting the top on without foil for 30 min, watching until it browned up. Fantastic!
