a cooking blog from one foodie to another... I rarely if ever use real measurements... my recipes are more like guidelines... but along the way we usually land on something kinda delectable...

Finally!!!  Here's my recipe for chili.... this is my base recipe. Sometimes I get fancy and add different types of beans.... Sometimes I add a can of beer.... but always it is MMMMMMMM -- MMMMMMM Good!


Brown about 3 lbs of ground beef (the leaner the better) with 1 white onion diced. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and chili powder. (I believe in layering my seasonings.) Drain off the fat and return it to the pot. Add 4 cans of diced tomatoes and 2 cans of water. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and chili powder. [If using beer, add it here.] Add 4 cans of chili beans (we like to use the HOT chili beans). Season with salt, pepper, garlic and chili powder. [If using other types of beans, add them here.]

Serve this over cooked shell noodles.

Garnish with sour cream, cheddar cheese and oyster crackers.

Tanisha's Casserole

Last time John was in the hospital my lovely niece, Tanisha,

made dinner for us. This casserole will forever be dubbed Tanisha's Casserole in our house. The kids LOVED it. So I've started making it frequently.

Tanisha's Casserole

2 cans of cream of chicken soup
2 soup cans of milk
Cooked Chicken Breast
Frozen Broccoli (actually any frozen veggie will work)
Egg Noodles (about half a package)
cheddar cheese
Fried Onions (you know they come in the can and you use them to top green bean casserole)

Mix the soup, milk, chicken, broccoli, cooked egg noodles, about 1 cup of cheese, and half a jar of the onions together.

Pour it into a casserole dish.

Top with another cup of cheese and the rest of the onions.

Bake at 350 until bubbly.
