On Saturday, my husband and I went out to enjoy some quiet adult time. We both knew that we were going to go and enjoy at a nice Mexican restaurant.

What’s better than an evening filled with guacamole, salsa, and warm chips. Oh, and a delicious margarita. When we went to order our dinner, we looked for something that we had never tried before. But we couldn’t decide, so the waiter suggested that we try Parrillada. Read More

Spaghetti Squash Boat with Italian Sausage and Spinach​

There are so many Keto recipes, but I think this one is definitely a winner. I would not add or change anything to this recipe below. More often than not, I will make a new recipe and instantly have a list of ingredients that I will change. But not this time. Not to mention, I was in the kitchen for a total of 30 minutes. You are literally prepping, cooking, and cleaning the kitchen for 30 minutes, and you are DONE DONE. Read More

Barbecue Wings Kind of Day​

When I woke up this morning I was craving peas. I wanted black eye peas, rice, and baked chicken. But by 12:00 I had completely switched my craving.

I was in the middle of watching my daughter’s last soccer tournament and a friend of mine called me and asked me about a good sports bar in the area. She was craving wings and fries. After that wings were the only thing I could think about. Read More

The Best Chili

I am beyond excited to share this recipe with you. I have searched and searched for new ways to make my chili. For me, the sauce is the key ingredient. I can’t just add water to the drippings of the meat.

What I usually do is add red wine or beer to my meat after it is browned on all sides. I then let it simmer, and 30 minutes later, I add my vegetables. However, this time, I switched it up.

I was walking through Krogers, doing my weekly grocery shopping, and I was looking at all the different chili beans. I just so happen to hear this teenage girl talking to her mom about how she wonders if this particular chili pack would be good or not. So, of course, I turned around so I could take a good look at what she was referring too. I could not believe that I had never seen this adorable package.

I grabbed it off the shelf and ran home to try it out.

So today, I share with you the most fantastic chili that I have ever had!


  • 3 lbs boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 pack of Stubb’s cooking sauce
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2 cans Red Kidney Beans
  • 2 cans Black Beans
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 Green pepper
  • 1 Red pepper
  • 3 tsp Black Pepper
  • 32 ounces of Beef Broth
  • 3 Cups rice (make according to package)
  1. Season and brown beef on all sides.
  2. Add the sauce packet from
  3. let simmer for 15 minutes
  4. Add all chopped vegetables and cover for 10 minutes.
  5. Add broth, beans, tomatoes, and season until taste.
  6. Use as little or as much of the hot packet. Be mindful of just how hot it can make your chili
  7. Let simmer until you are ready to serve.

The ultimate way to prepare this chili is with a crockpot. It will allow all the flavors to get happy together for hours.
