Quick and Easy Chili

Today I'm sharing our Quick and Easy Chili.
The weather has been yucky so it's perfect chili weather.

We use canned beans for this recipe.
Sometimes I cook dried beans for chili but 
then there are times when we decide at the last minute
that we want chili so canned beans are great.
Hey, I'll take the help when I can.

Be Carton Smart

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I was selected to receive some Tetra Pak food products to try and review
so I decided to use the carton food products in exchange for can foods for 
a few of my holiday recipes.  I received Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Stock,
Pumpkin Puree and Cranberry Sauce.

Cranberry Bars

I love cranberry sauce and we usually
only have it around the holidays.
After making these cranberry bars, we may
be using cranberry sauce more often throughout the year.

Paper Ornament

I can totally get lost in Pinterest.
I get on there to look for 1 thing and before I know it,
it's 2-3 hours later and I have hundreds of tabs open.
Well, hundreds of tabs may be an exaggeration but you get the idea.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Oh my goodness!
I had a wonderful idea and we tried it and
it turned out great. We love fudge and we were
making fudge with dark chocolate morsels and 
I told my husband that we should try making fudge with
the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that we had gotten that day.

Easy Toffee

Hey friends!
I have a few bags of caramels left and I've been
wondering what would happen if I cooked some of them.
I've never cooked caramels before, other than just melting them for
apples so I was thrilled when I ended up with toffee.

Wordy Wednesday

Don't freak out at the first picture okay.
I've posted pictures of the tree in Grandboys back yard
that he loves to hang from and climb in. Well he got a little
too fearless and fell from about 7 or 8 feet high.
We took him to the emergency room just to make sure nothing was 
broken and the neck collar was just a precaution.
He was sore for a few days but he is fine and back to being a fearless boy again.
