Chili and Choice

Christmas was a cacophony of foods, sounds and sights. However, most of it is based on traditional elements, ham, turkey, greens, pies, etc. When I married my wife I was introduced to a new tradition, chili on Christmas Eve. ...

French Onion Something and Enhanced Local Numbers...

Mondays are the day for food but yesterday I made something startlingly good and very simple. I will not be providing a recipe, as that takes time and, in my case, advance notice. I normally cook without a recipe...
