Turkey Chili with a twist

Even when it's 85+ outside, I am still making this recipe. Comfort food is comfort food and it has no season. At least to me. This Turkey Chili recipe is modified from an online recipe I found. Although Chili isn't the worst thing you can eat, you can make it bad. I see you adding them 20 saltines and pounds of shredded cheddar. Bet you wont even need them with this recipe! Turkey Chili ...more

Super Bowl chili (shhhh….it's vegan)

I got a message on Facebook last week from a relative. “Hey, we’re going to be in town for the Super Bowl, are you around that weekend?”Two questions: 1. The Super Bowl is in New York this year? 2.

Kicking Off Football Season With a Chili Party

Yesterday marked one of my favorite and also least favorite days of the year - the start of football season. Now don't get me wrong- I really and truly love football and I won't miss a single Packers game if I can help it, but the joy of rooting on my favorite team means saying goodbye to my husband until early February. (Which is incidentally around the time our baby is due- just watch me go into labor on Super Bowl Sunday!) ...more

Sweet and Spicy Chili with Cornbread Waffles to Fight the Last of the Winter Blahs
