Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie
I'm sorry to give this a bad review. because I was so excited to try this highly rated recipe. I prepared it exactly as stated (using whole milk, and adding a whipped cream topping that I made from heavy cream, with shaved chocolate for garnish). The flavor was good, but the overall result was disappointing. I had announced that I was bringing a chocolate cream pie, and several people said (when it was being cut), "Where is the chocolate?" It's not the reaction I was hoping for! I used 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream, in order to fill the pie plate to the proper height, but it overwhelmed the filling. Not sure if I would make this again with double the amount of chocolate filling or not. It was a lot of work (including stirring for 15 minutes), for not a lot of Wow. Again, sorry.

Nicole's Accident Chili
To make it less soupy. mash up a small portion of the beans and stir them in. Works great as a thickener. I also add 1 tsp or so dijon mustard -- gives it more depth but you can avoid the "spiciness" you would get with cumin, chili powder, etc.

Irish Lamb Stew
This was a huge hit! Be sure to plan ahead and make it the day before, it is immensely better that way. If gravy is too thin, mash up a few of the potato pieces and stir them into the gravy -- it will thicken up nicely and taste great. I served with corn muffins and rosemary focaccia bread. Several guests put a slice of the bread at the bottom of their bowl and ladled the stew on top of it. This was a great way to sop up the gravy! I used wine as in the original recipe, and wow. We had dinner for ten, and 4 were from the UK and they said this stew was really authentic (and delicious). One hinted strongly for a doggie bag, so I gave him some leftovers!) I added 2 small packages of whole pearl mushrooms. Button mushrooms would also work -- again, I would add them whole. My butcher did not have shoulder, so he cut cubes from a boneless leg, worked great. I used slightly less meat, slightly more veggies, and just over half the bacon. Awesome!
