Super Bowl Chili A Note From the Chef: This is my dad's Super Bowl Sunday Chili recipe. Today, when I make it, I saute the onion and bell pepper and brown the meat first. However, I remember my dad just dumping everything into the pot, giving it a good stir, bringing it to a boil and then, he turned it down to a simmer and let it cook for 30 minutes. During those 30 minutes he would prep bowls of accompaniments like, sour cream, green onions, tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, "Frito's" corn chips...

The problem is, I only want two cans and then, I'm stuck with 8 more! Those garbanzo beans. Yea, I bought four cans for $1.25. I still have three. Black beans....

Canned Tomatoes When grocery shopping, I always walk down the canned vegetable aisle to see which canned tomatoes are on sale. Not only is my pantry filled with various canned tomatoes (Whole, Diced, Sauce, Stewed), I've had to store some in our laundry room cupboards because I literally ran out of room in the kitchen. They're one of my favorite quick go-to's for weeknight meals and have proven to be the most versatile in my laundry room. Er, I mean, pantry. Enjoy!   Shakshuka Serves 2-4 Lately,...

Traditional Pan Dripping Turkey Giblet Gravy (Gramma Vera's Turkey Gravy) Yields: +/- 12 servings This recipe includes the neck and giblets(that little pack you find inside the turkey). This is the classic, old school gravy my gramma made. You don't have to use the giblets. It's still delicious without it. To make this gravy, you'll need to make sure you have a good roasting pan for your turkey so you can get all those precious drippings! What are Drippings? Those are what's left in the pan...
