Beef and Bean Chili

I’m all about comfort food this time of year.

It’s more that I’m just very proud of some of the recipes that come out of my kitchen that I can call my own. Some people feel a sense of accomplishment running a marathon others when they kick bad habits but for me I find it through my blog. Continue reading “Protein Packed Baked Pasta”
