Hot Italian Giardiniera
I haven't tried this recipe yet but wanted to offer a suggestion to Daria Kilgore. (I had to rate it in order to post this suggestion and gave it 4 stars because olive oil will change texture when refrigerated) In place of the Olive Oil try Vegetable Oil for dishes you intend to refrigerate. It won't solidify like Olive Oil does ... just one of the many little tips I learned from my Italian mother. Hope that helps.

Irish Cream Liqueur II
This is sooo easy and sooo delicious. I did made a few changes to suit our taste and make it slightly less fattening :) I used: - 4 TBLS of chocolate syrup instead of baking chocolate. The chocolate incorporated better this way ...... of course you can add more :) ...... chocolate is good for you, right? - Half and Half instead of Heavy Cream ...... I know, I know, it won't be as rich or as thick but honestly it tastes great! - Like another reviewer I dissolved the coffee granules in some heated evaporated milk before adding. (Thanks MISI1818 :) and - Added 1/4 teas vanilla and 1/8 teas almond extract which is purely optional but added to the taste. Thanks so much 'cheap chef' EVERYONE loved this. I even gave some as gifts and they requested this be part of their Christmas present every year!

Chili I
This is just the BEST chili recipe ever. I have substituted skinless boneless chicken breast for the sirloin, I've omited the beef broth or the tomato paste when I didn't have them on hand, I've substituted tomato sauce or tomato puree for the broth. It comes out great every time. It's very user and pantry friendly :) The only real changes I made were to scale the recipe down to 4 servings (although it's even better left over) decrease the chili peppers and to add diced green pepper, parsley, garlic and basil. I also put all the beans in at once and simmer for about 2 hours, adding a little water if it gets too thick while simmering. It has alot of unusual ingredients (coffee, cocoa etc) which is what made me want to try it. Surprisingly they all work together well. Serve this with some warm garlic bread and a crisp salad and you have a delicious and easy meal. My DH who doesn't like Chili said this is the best!
