Apple Pie Sweet Potatoes

Share the post “Apple Pie Sweet Potatoes” FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedInE-mailPrint This year, a super simple sweet potato recipe returns to my Thanksgiving table. It came from a newspaper column recipe a few years back. It is nice for a couple of reasons. First, it is microwaved saving valuable oven space that I just don’t have. Second, it is not quite as sweet as traditional candied yams. I…

With the Internet, I mostly bookmark a recipe that is a candidate for a future meal. If I think the recipe is a “must try”, I print it and place it on a stack of other “must-try” recipes in my pantry….

Turkey Chili

Share the post “Turkey Chili” FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedInE-mailPrint Saturday I spent the day working on a Habitat for Humanity project. I came home exhausted. I had bought ground turkey the day before and decided to make turkey chili. Turkey is a good substitution for beef in chili. The taste is almost identical and maybe even better. I like my chili thick. This recipe results in a chili…

Cincinnati Chili

Share the post “Cincinnati Chili” FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedInE-mailPrint 20 years ago, Brett and I lived in Cincinnati. At one of the first lunches with my coworkers, they took me to Gold Star Chili across the street from our office and introduced me to Cincinnati chili. If you haven’t had it, it does not resemble traditional chili at all. It doesn’t have chunks of beef, spicy southwestern sauce,…
