This chili can be made with or without meat. Since my husband enjoys his chili with meat, I added browned bits of Italian sausage into the slow cooker along with all the other ingredients. However, by omitting the sausage and swapping vegetable broth for the beef broth, this chili becomes completely vegetarian. Talk about versatile!
You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.
I’m sharing this recipe for fudge that I haven’t made for many, many years. I first found the recipe in some woman’s magazine probably close to 20 years ago, and it’s name is Fantasy Fudge.
We all know that there are a million recipes out there for cranberry sauce, and they all beat the buttons off the cranberry jelly sold in the cans on the grocery store shelves. You know the ones. The ones that come out like a log on a plate complete with that appetite suppressing suctioned slosh sound. Plop. Jiggle. Jiggle.
While slow-cooker and pressure cooking are very popular these days, I encourage you to fully take advantage of stovetop cooking in the fall and winter too. Your home will thank you for all the delicious aromas that stovetop simmering will provide, and it’s one way to quick way to turn your house into a cozy home!
My parents were coming for dinner, so I wanted to make something simple for dessert with ingredients I already had on hand in my pantry and fridge. I took out the package of frozen pie dough and let it thaw on the counter as I pondered in my head what I would do with it.
