BBQ Chicken Chili

Tuesday, June 22, 2010


This chili is easy to make and can be made on the stovetop or in a slow-cooker. I used leftover BBQ chicken but it would also be good with ground chicken, turkey or beef.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Wednesday, April 7, 2010


This enchilada sauce is a cinch to make but it isn't lacking in flavor. In a side-by-side taste test with a more in-depth and time-consuming sauce, my family chose this one as the favorite. I have given rough quantities of the spices that I use but I usually end up doctoring the sauce to taste.

Chili Con Carne

Sunday, March 21, 2010


Chili con carne (Chili) is Spanish for "chile peppers with meat." Traditionally, chili is a simple stew made of chile peppers, meat, cumin, garlic and onions. In my variation of chili, I include tomato paste to get the flavor of tomatoes in the broth without the chunks of tomato. I also use pinto and black beans for extra lean protein and fiber. Serve it with warm corn bread and honey.

Natural Easter Egg Dyes

Thursday, March 18, 2010


Appreciate the vivid colors and natural beauty of fruits, vegetables and spices: dye your Easter eggs with everyday foods rather than boxes of chemical colorings. This is a great family project and learning experience. Though it will take a little more planning than your basic Easter egg dye kit, I think you will find the extra time well worth it. Even though I'm a "grown-up," I felt a child-like excitement watching the eggs turn colors in bowls of cabbage, spinach, blueberries and more!

Taco Meat

Monday, January 4, 2010


This taco meat doesn't require any store-bought seasoning packets but it is just as easy to make. It is so juicy and flavorful that you can easily substitute ground turkey or chicken for a healthier option (and some people might not even notice a difference!).
