Delicious I hope!

As I type, this is bubbling away in my Crockpot at home. Cooking is my latest up and coming hobby--I'm beginning to consider it art you can EAT! In this recipe, I am very intrigued by the chocolate.....

Chili with Chocolate!

1 lb ground beef
( I like to use ground turkey and in chili you can't taste the difference!)
1 medium onion
1 can diced tomatoes
(I goofed here... bought the tomatoes with green chilies--hope it works out)
1 can chili beans
1 tbsp semi sweet chocolate
1.5 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
2-3 tbsp garlic (minced!)

Brown the meat, toss everything in the crockpot.
Let it simmer on LOW for about 6 hours!

And since it is Friday, may I also suggest making these over the weekend?!!!

Beer Margaritas
A little lighter, bubblier version of a traditional margarita!

4 12 oz light beers
1 cup tequila
1 can 12 oz limeade concentrate
Salt for the glasses
lime wedges

And while sipping,
close your eyes and pretend you are here:


  1. Is this a picture from PR? I want to see more!!!

  2. Yes! I've been terrible about sending photos.... I got a photobook made though so you can see it when you come in next week!!!!!!1

  3. Hmm... I need to try that margarita recipe.
