Here's a whole bunch:

http://www.saveur.com/solrSearchResults.jsp?q=chili

Chili is one of the first things I learned to make, and I've evolved it over the years based on our current tastes, plus whatever's in the fridge. I generally do it without meat, but with extra beans, softened bell peppers and frozen corn, then top it with shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream. Kind of a meatless tex-mex version I guess!

I make a vegetarian chili very similar to this.

My favourite is still my grandma's original recipe - ground beef, tomatoes, tomato sauce, kidney beans, chili powder, pepper flakes, onions, red pepper (NOT green!) and salt. No measurements... the recipe even says "add ingredients and stir until it looks right." :lol:
I like to let this simmer for hours... the longer it cooks, the better it tastes!

I make a great vegetarian chili too. Learned it from a Vegan years ago and haven't made it for years. Mine uses both red & green peppers, onions, kidney beans, 1 large can of beans and tomato sauce, texturized protein, tomatoes and spaghetti sauce. I also add fresh mushrooms and a touch of garlic with the chili seasoning.

So true - and it's even better reheated the next day!

This week's challenge for me is a giant zucchini (courgette for you Euros!) that a kind gardener has given me. I want to make zucchini bread (apparently it freezes well), but all the recipes I have call for enormous amounts of sugar - 1 to 1 1/2 cups for a standard loaf!!! I'm just going to half the sugar and hope it works.



Chocolate zucchini bread is divine, incredibly moist. The two go together like lamb and mint or peanut butter and jam.

And you get to tell yourself that you are having zucchini with your chocolate.:)

Here's one recipe: http://stretchmarkmama.blogspot.com/2009/08/chocolate-zucchini-bread.html

I can hardly wait to get home from work and start baking!

I have monstrous box of apples from my parents' apple tree. As a treat for my new hubby, I'm going to surprise him with a fresh homemade apple pie (his favourite) when he walks in the door from work. Yum... I'm going to stop and buy some ice cream because I love love love warm pie and ice cream. We might even skip supper tonight and just eat apple pie. ;)

I do that all the time; I cook at least two dishes on Sunday and I can alternate 'tween the two for lunch and dinner all week.

Served with garlic/herb mashed potatoes, green beans (butter and garlic seasoned) and lettuce salad (mix of romaine and iceberg, with red onion garnish).

YUMMMMMM

Meatloaf tonight, for some reason the best I ever made - ground buffalo, extra lean pork and veal, mixed with eggs, breadcrumbs, onion soup mix, ketchup, diced green chiles and southwest seasoning. Plenty left over for tomorrow. I love left over meatloaf.

Meatloaf here also: ground chuck, egg, fresh breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, sauteed diced onion, celery and green pepper - free form shape in my cast iron skillet with bacon strips draped over the top; Definitely more traditional than yours, but very tasty none the less.

Kitchen/cooking porn is the best there is. Me, personally, I can't keep my hands off cookbooks; they keep finding their way into my apartment - I swear I don't know how they got here!

What is green paper and why is it in a chili recipe?

My aunt gave me her 2006 Food & Wine Yearbook, and I swear, when I'm not making things from it, I lurve leafing through the pics and just reading the recipes....somebody help me!!
