    Tonight I Began the Ritual

    of creating my 'chili for the anal retentive cook'. Some might say the two are not great bedfellows. So today, I started the first step in making a really complicated chili. My philosophy is to complicate things.. if something is easy it's not worth doing. If something is...

    Raw Chilli

    There was a red chilli pepper in my dinner today, and thinking I was being bold and brave, casually plucked it and crunched it up. I put my plate down very slowly, then let out a series of deathly screams running into the kitchen desperately ransacking the cupboards. Just...

    My mom makes it with the kidney beans

    and all that, but she knows I won't eat it if there is no spice, no herbs and no fresh ingredients. Yes I'm picky and what.

    The Food Of The Gods

    Chili is without a doubt the best food, perfect in any weather, I sat in an un air conditioned resturant in Tombstone AZ, what did I order Chili. So healthy for you, tomatoes, beans, onions, peppers, it's like a garden in a pot. Add my little specialty, Fantastico.

    I Just Made the Best Damn Batch of Chili Ever!

    You're all invited to stop by and share it with me. Please bring your own bowls and spoons, as I live in a wee, tiny Hobbit House and don't have much storage for these things. Donations of tortilla chips, salsa, guacamole, etc., will be gratefully accepted. Olé!!

    Trying To Get It Right

    Chili With Twice Baked Potato

    I love Chili with meat, beans, and peppers. Ground chuck, tomatoes, kidney beans, onions, peppers, and a few spices just to kick things up. While that is simmering, time to bake some potatoes in the oven, or for you multitaskers, a few minutes in the microwave. Just use whatever...

    Texas Chili
