"What's for Dinner Honey?" 

It may rain this weekend, but we're using the current snowfall as an excuse to make comfort food.

Darcy gave us two great chili recipes with a little kick to them {and Betty could use a little kick right now}. Simple and quick {add your own punch line there...}


Heartwarming Chili- from Darcy Woodyatt
Serves 8-10

3 lbs ground beef
