Black Bean and Chickpea Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This was tasty and pretty easy, I followed the recipe almost exactly except I used 1 green and 1 red pepper and canned corn. I think it lacked salt so I added a little. It's really very pretty and fall like, the colors of the vegetable look so nice. I brought the left overs to work and everyone loved it. We are only two people and it makes quite a bit. It actually tasted better the next day, I guess all the flavors get to blend together. My husband does not like chick peas and picked some of them out but all in all it was quite good and very healthy. One more thing, it is not very spicy at all so if you want it spicy you definitely have to add more chili powder or maybe fresh chili pepper.

Hazelnut Crusted Halibut with Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I never had halibut before and it was delicious with this recipe. I had bought frozen halibut from Costco and defrosted it in the refrigerator over night. I did almost exactly what the recipe says except I used only about 4 tablespoons of butter and for the broth I dissolved a knorr's vegetable bullion cube and used about 4 tablespoons of that. I wish I had used more broth, it was very tasty with the browned butter. The recipe calls for 2 halibut steaks, I made 3, so I thought I would need to increase the nut/bread crumbs so I made 1/3 cup of each, it was way too much, the regular recipe is enough for at least 4 steaks. Overall it was an excellent dinner; and it was so easy and quick to make. I will definitely make it again.
