Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II
Spinach Artichoke Dip has to be my favorite of the dips. I've been looking for a recipe that could become "my" recipe -- one that I would use again and again. In trying to do this, I've used several recipes on this site, and some that are not on this site, but I really do think that I've found it in this one, with some, minor changes to the recipe (thus giving it 4 stars instead of five). I read through the comments and noticed that quite a few people used a quarter cup of sour cream instead of mayo in the recipe. I've made this twice -- once with full fat sour cream and once with Hellman's Light Mayonnaise and I honestly didn't taste a difference. I'll probably wind up using whatever I happen to have on hand in the mayo/sour cream department next time I make the recipe. What I did do was I put an entire bag (4 cups?) of mozzarella in (primarly because I use a large baking dish for the recipe and it filled up better that way). The end result was delicious, and it was incredibly easy to make. I've also found that it reheats well.

Best Brownies
I have to admit that I am pretty disappointed with this recipe. This brownie recipe was easy to make, and I already had all of the ingredients for it (including the honey, which I thought was a strange and unnecessary addition) so I decided to make it for some neighbors. My favorite brownies are the ones that are rich, dense, and taste more like fudge than cake. These brownies taste much more like cake than like fudge, which is probably why I didn't particularly like them. I will not make these brownies ever again.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili
I subsitute the ground turkey for ground beef. I also don't like my foods nearly as spicy as my husband, so I opt for jalapenos instead of habaneros. The recipe has become the family's favorite chili-con-carne!
