Country Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
It's really hard to stop eating this casserole. My roommate and I made it following the recipe, using a mix of sourdough and wheat bread. Personally, I love the taste of sourdough so if I make it again I'd use all sourdough. Also, instead of drizzling the butter over the breadcrumbs, I think frying them up with a little bit of salt and pepper (and garlic!) would make the breadcrumbs fantastic. It was super easy to make. :) We also agreed that hashbrowns on this would have been amazing so long as the top stayed crispy. We were thinking either a bottom layer or mixing in with the bread.

Amazing Hawaiian Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I'll admit, I was super skeptical about a chili that a) had pineapple b) vanilla and c) chicken, no beef. However, mine turned out completely fantastic. For flavor, I would totally give this a five. That being said, I made a lot of modifications, the most significant being that after reading the comments on the long cooking time (on top of the 2 hours!) and the fact that I'm both busy and lazy, I decided on dumping everything into a crock pot. Cooking overnight is kind of like marinating, right? It probably loses out on some of the extra chicken texture and flavor, but after a night in the crock pot, I just used a fork to shred the chicken in the morning (it was super tender!) and let it sit some more, so I'm not too fussed over that loss. I also used southwest salsa, since I wanted to use up that whole can, and no ancho chili powder, so I just put another tablespoon of chili powder and half a tablespoon of cumin in instead. Oh, and more garlic. I tried this in the morning when I was shredding the chicken, and it was good. I agree with other commenters - crushed pineapple is probably better. It was missing something though, so I put in a splash of vinegar and cayenne pepper, and that seemed to do the trick. Retrospect says that the dish can be made healthier by excluding the butter, since I didn't use it to cook the chicken (and dumped it into the crock pot instead). Overall really good, and dumping everything into a crockpot makes this a much more feasible recipe.
