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.

Chicken Tortilla Soup Inspired By Acapulco When I was in college there was an awesome restaurant called Acapulco. We enjoyed dining there and often times I would order their chicken tortilla soup as my entree. I loved that it was full of veggies - zucchini and carrots, and topped with homemade tortilla strips. Heaven in a bowl. So when I made up a pot of this soup for dinner I threw in some . . .
You guys, my family and I just moved back to socal. I am so happy to be back in the golden state amongst some of my favorite restaurants! Islands Restaurant is something I have loved since my college days. I'm a sucker for a good blue cheese burger. But my husband always gets an entree called the yaki tacos - as in teriyaki tacos.

When I was a newly wed, my husband emailed me a recipe titled "The Best Chicken You'll Ever Eat". It was a recipe for baked honey mustard chicken.

Who doesn't LOVE Mac and Cheese? Mac and Cheese is the ULTIMATE comfort food. With the fall months approaching I love burning my fall scented candles and breaking out the comfort food recipes. There is something about fall that I adore...maybe the smells, maybe the clothes...I'm not sure, but it's my favorite time of year. Simple & Tasty About ten years ago I went on the hunt for the PERFECT macaroni and cheese. I didn't want to hassle with making a white sauce or buying fancy . . .
I know that a lot of people have strong feelings about meatloaf...and it is usually disdain. My husband is one of those people. He doesn't have the fondest memories of eating meatloaf. He thinks of them loaded with things he doesn't like. I...don't have those same feelings. Growing up my mom made the BEST meatloaf. She is a really simple eater and always made really simple food.
