Game Day Chili

By LT

I love chili... it’s warm, comforting, and you get to top it with things like shredded cheddar cheese, onion, sour cream and fresh cilantro. What’s not to like? This particular chili should be on every tailgater's must have list especially on a cold days outside the Frozen Tundra or for that game day party when you have lots of people to feed.

Elsie’s Pie Crust

By Elsie

Since my hubby, Todd, is a huge apple pie fan. I find myself making several throughout the fall season. And when I'm in the grocery store reaching for a "cheater pie crust," I hear Gram's voice ringing in my head, "LT! Don't buy that crap, it's so easy and cheaper to make pie crusts!" This crust freezes well.

I love that our Grandmothers and Great Aunt's thought it important enough to record a few cocktail recipes in their personal cookbooks. For a modern day spin, Loma recommends Prairie Cucumber Flavored Organic Vodka... yum, yum!

Spanish Bean Soup

By LT

Spanish bean soup, Potajes de garbanzos, has long been a Cuban tradition. My first taste of this soup was at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City, Florida near Tampa. It was love at first taste! I truly could not get enough of it. Like can't-put-it-down-lick-the-bottom-of-the-bowl delicious... ok so I didn't do that at the restaurant in front of my mother-in-law, but I wanted too. As with any addiction, I needed my fix of this soup and seeing as I live 1,548 miles from Ybor City.... I had to learn to make this at home.

This is a comforting soup best served with a big slice of crusty bread. If there are any leftovers its even better the next day.
