Easy Sweet Chili
Wow, I was expecting the best chili I have ever had. This was OK but certainly not the best. I was very hesitant about the corn since I have never had chili with corn but I followed the recipe. Should have followed my instincts. The corn was overpowering and completely changed the consistency of the chili. I used the brown sugar but didn't really taste it. It also seemed very thick and lacking the chili gravy I am accustomed to. Definitely not enough meat. I might try some changes but still looking for that great recipe.

Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche
I used the bacon pieces as suggested by other reviewers and it overwhelmed the quiche plus it made it so salty. If I had to do again, I would use less than half the bacon and half the onion. In any case, I will try again with no bacon or onion and use mushrooms and salt and pepper and see what happens. Quite frankly, I am not a big fan of strong tastes like bacon and onion and if I use them, I use in moderation.

Chili I
I read all the reviews saying this recipe was too sweet so I reduced brown sugar to 1/4 cup. What a mistake! I could not even taste the sweetness so next time I will use the 1/2 cup measurement. I also do not like it hot so I added only 1 poblano pepper but I will try 2 next time. I did use all the chilli and cayenne and liked it....
