Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This initially came out a little more bland than I was expecting (though I was a bit short on the basil pesto). If anyone else has this problem, try adding salt and cayenne pepper to taste. It helped to bring out the flavors and gave it the kick I was expecting.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Excellent! I did make some modifications--I used a slow cooker for approximately 6 hrs. I added a can of pinto beans with the kidney beans, but I used only about 1/2 of each can initially. I put in the other two half cans at about 5 hrs of slow cooking. I did this to ensure not all of the beans would fall apart. This seemed to work well. I also added some red pepper flakes initially (approximately 1/4 teaspoon) along with all of the other spices. I do like my food spicy and this ended up perfect.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This came out quite well. I added a can of diced tomatoes and doubled the ginger, cumin, coriander, and turmeric. I also threw in a little curry powder I had. I also added a diced baked potato with the chick peas. It ended up being a bit dry, but adding some water worked just fine. It also ended up being a tad bit spicy with just the rice but combining with some plain yogurt from the supermarket works really well. Also, for reference: 2 tsp fresh ginger root = 1 tsp ground ginger; 6 whole cloves = 1/2 tsp ground clove, 1 inch cinnamon stick = 1 tsp ground cinnamon
