Apple, Brie, and Walnut Salad
I thought the brie in this was way overpowering. A different cheese selection may be ok. I purchased an "Emeril's" bottle of balsamic vinaigrette which was great. Surprisingly, I found that this salad actually tasted better the next day... I think over time, the vinaigrette mellowed out the cheese. Served the second day with grilled shrimp and veggies on top, it actually wasn't too bad.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili
Delicious! I was skeptical of making this chili because of the few ingredients - it sounded too easy to be tasty. But I was pleasantly surprised. Here are some modifications I made: Used ground chicken instead of beef, used fresh chopped garlic and sprinkling of salt instead of garlic salt, added 1 t.coriander, 1/8 t. chili powder, 1/2 t. cumin and 1/4 t. red pepper flakes, added 1/4 chopped green pepper, used entire envelope of chili seasoning. I am so excited to have found this recipe and plan to make it on chilly winter nights in the future.

Caramel Apple Pie I
The pie turned out wonderfully! Here are the modifications I made: I squeezed half a lime over the peeled apples to keep them from browning. As suggested by another member, I used caramel dip instead of caramel topping and spread it on the bottom of the pie crust. I used 2/3 cup sugar instead of ¾ cup. I used ¾ t. all-spice instead of cinnamon. I used walnuts instead of pecans. I added ½ t. cardamom powder. About half way through baking, I put foil over the top because it was rapidly browning. Fifteen minutes before it was done, I removed foil and just placed it on the crust. A delicious pie that I'll definitely make again!!
