Mild, buttery flavor with a pinch of sea salts and its so satisfying! In the recent years I've come to really appreciate good seasonings. I did use to think salt was salt, seasoning salt was seasoning salt, bullion was bullion. HECK NO. These things can and do make a huge difference in the outcome of . . .

October and Halloween always make me crave chili. My Grandma always makes this at Halloween time and now we make it every year on Halloween. Grandma's Secret To Delicious Chili My Grandma's chili is always the best...so many years ago I called her up and asked her for the recipe.

Today I want to chat about WATER! The source of life. I am actually a water lover. I enjoy a nice big glass of ice water almost as much as a nice big glass of Diet Coke.

I'm completed addicted to BUFFALO SAUCE! and I totally blame Kadee for this. I didn't grow up on spicy food, I didn't experiment with it as a young adult...not until I moved to CA and had a few friends who all love spicy food.

So when BRIANNAS challenged us to come up with a recipe for their blue cheese dressing the first thing that came to . . .
This cheddar cauliflower soup one of my favorite of all time. The thing is, is that is come from a restaurant in another state far away from me, and it has become so popular in that state, in that restaurant, that it's way over priced!
