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.

Lovin' The Weekend Blog Hop



I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and
that you were able to enjoy some quality time with your family.

We had Christmas dinner at my daughters new house this year.
It was her first time hosting and cooking a holiday dinner and
she did a fabulous job. It was different not being there when Grandboy
woke up and opened his presents but he was still excited when we got there.

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.

Lovin The Weekend


Can you believe there are only 2 weekends left in 2013?!
Where has the time gone.

I'm hoping to make Christmas cookies this weekend
with my family. Grandboy sure loves decorating them....
and eating the colored sugar.

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.
