Pumpkin Chili
I was surprised by how much I liked this! I made the recipe almost exactly as written, but I made it vegetarian by leaving out the beef and putting 1 cup extra beans in the blender with 1 cup of the tomato juice and then adding it to the chili. This gives it a slightly meaty texture. I think I'll use less tomato next time, though. It's a bit too much with the diced tomatoes AND the juice.

Mini Cheesecakes III
So perfect! I did the recipe exactly as written, except I used butter for the crust. The only thing I did differently was to make them TRULY mini, meaning a mere inch in diameter. I baked them in paper liners for 14 minutes and they are the perfect consistency. By the way, I'm not a fan of cheesecake.

Fudgy Brownies I
This was my first attempt at baking brownies, though I bake all the time. I followed the recipe exactly, though I accidentally used a little more cocoa powder than stated. These were exactly how I like my brownies. Gooey on the inside, flaky and a little crispy on the outside. I'm very pleased. :)
