Chili Vanilli

Happy Monday everyone!  I’m really excited to share one of my coworker’s chili recipes with you today.  I first tasted this chili last week when my team hosted a chili cook-off contest. Each contestant not only had to make an A-plus chili, but had to make enough to feed approximately 40 people. And boy, the contest was a hit. Seven team members participated in the chili cook-off and the rest of us had the hard job of picking the winner. This chili recipe was hands down the crowd favorite. In fact, I loved it so much that I made a batch for a Friendsgiving potluck last weekend.

Pumpkin Popovers

Sides & Starters | November 3, 2015 | By

Pumpkin Popovers When you see the words “pumpkin” and “baked goods” together, you probably think pumpkin pie,  PSLs, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin brownies, etc.  But did you know that pumpkin pairs wonderfully with savory baked goods, such as popovers, as well? So, when I had the opportunity to make these pumpkin popovers, I jumped at it.

Popovers are a classic dinner roll option. With their hollow centers and crispy tops, you can eat a couple of these without getting too full before dinner. Add a pumpkin twist, and you’ve got the perfect fall-flavored roll for your next family dinner.
