Chipotle Chili


I found the idea for this recipe a few weeks ago and it took me this long to find “Chipotle” peppers in my supermarket!  I’ve been making my “Kelly’s Famous Chili” for many years and loving it; so I was  a little hesitant to try something completely different. I’m so glad I did 🙂 Eric […]

Spinach & Zucchini Pie – 141


If you’ve read my previous blogs you’ll know that I LOVE to shop at Whole Foods. The last time Eric and I went there, I may have gone a little overboard with the produce – but everything looked so good! I bought a giant container of fresh, organic baby spinach. My plan was to make […]

Mexican Stir Fry – 161


This is one of my favorite recipes. It’s super fast, really good for you and takes very little time to cook. Of course, having my prep cook (I mean sous chef 🙂 ) chopping up the veggies first is a big help! Even if you don’t have your own sous chef, it’s still a really […]
