Well Fall has officially arrived! We've finally been having some blustery days and the nights are downright freezing!
When the weather get so cold I like to put on a big pot of homemade chili and bake up a batch of cornbread to go along.
The past few weeks have had me making lots of yummy comfort foods. I made a BIG pot of my delicious Chicken Enchilada Soup, a smaller pot of my scrumptious Chicken Tortellini Soup and now this hearty Homemade Chili to go along with all the meals to keep you nice and toasty when it's cold outside.
I have totally changed my way of thinking on Apple Pie and what kind of apples you need to use to make a great one! Yikes! I know.
For years you've probably read about my preaching on how Granny Smith are the be all end all apples for apple pie, but the truth is there are all kinds of great apples for baking and I just never knew this until recently.
I always used my mom's recipe for apple pie until about a year ago.
After school or after work snacks are sometimes very hard to decide on what to make, right?
I often find my son with a bag of chips or a bag of Top Ramen as his snack and even though we have a ton of fruit and other delicious looking treats in the house they all seam to reach for the convenience foods.
Well I found a treat that is delicious, easy to make, and one that I always have all the ingredients for on hand.
You've probably heard me talk about the lunch situation around here and the fact that I have a hubby that works from home, a daughter getting ready for boot camp in 4 weeks, and a son who is on independent study and they are all home for lunch every day.
I try to come up with different things to make so we don't get bored from the same old sandwiches or burger joints.
We love Quiznos and their toasty sandwiches but they have moved from the area so I came up with an alternative to make at home.
