Chili, as I say every time I upload a new recipe for some, is one of my go-to meals. There are at least five different recipes for various styles of chili on this blog, and in five more years, I’m sure that number will at least double. I cannot be stopped. This time, though, I’m

My family was never big on beef, but my in-laws totally are. As a result, over the past several years, I’ve gradually learned how to cook cow, and, with practice, I’ve gotten a bit better. Most of my beef dishes (that aren’t stew or chili, because we know at this point I can make those

Chili is one of those meals that you can make a thousand different ways and always manage to pull off something new. In this case, I got to talking with a friend at a hockey tournament about game chili, and while this recipe is written for game meats, I’m a basic suburban housewife, so I

I needed a little break from the pumpkin mayhem, so this week’s post is still orange, still spicy, but otherwise deviating from the current standard. Anyone who’s had actual Indian food knows that American versions and spinoffs don’t come anywhere near the celebration of flavor and spice that is actual Indian food. Proper Indian cooking

If you’re a fan of toast or PB&J sandwiches and you’ve never had apple butter before, you’re missing out! It’s like super-concentrated, creamy applesauce. It’s sweet, full of spices, and perfect on toast, rolls, or vanilla ice cream. It’s been a favorite spread of mine since I was a kid, and the best way to

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave

I had a giant pork loin hanging out in my freezer and I knew it had been there for a while but I wasn’t sure just how long “a while” had been. While looking for recipe ideas for braising, roasting, marinating, and countless other things I wasn’t super interested in, I remembered that pulled pork
