Worknight Cincinnati Chili

Worknight Cincinnati Chili

What’s Cincinnati chili, you ask. It’s a deliciously spiced chili that is served over spaghetti, then topped with shredded cheddar cheese and chopped sweet onion. Hey, it’s not that crazy. Just think of the chili as spaghetti sauce, and the cheddar cheese as Parmesan cheese. Remember that pot of Spicy Ground Beef Chili  I made a few months ago? I don’t mean to boast, […]

Beginner Crochet: Circles

Beginner Crochet: Circles

When I wanted information on how to crochet a flat circle, I turned to YouTube. The videos that I watched explained how a flat circle is made by crocheting concentric rows or rounds. Each round is increased by the number of stitches that are in the beginning round. This sounds confusing, but is really very simple once you get started. Single Crochet Circle.  I […]

Glazed Pumpkin Cookies ~ Santa’s Favorite

Glazed Pumpkin Cookies ~ Santa’s Favorite

I leave these pumpkin cookies out for Santa on Christmas Eve. ~ Every year, he leaves a clean plate, not even a crumb left. The recipe for these cookies was given to me way back in 1973 by my college, freshman roommate, Allison Chenoweth. I’ve made them every year since. It’s not Christmas without a batch of these […]

Now, my sisters and I each serve this salad at our Thanksgiving meal. I’m making my sister Emily’s improved version which has added orange zest and a decorative piped cream cheese […]

Beginner Crochet: Slip Knot, Chaining, Single Crochet

A few years ago I taught myself how to crochet by watching YouTube videos. I learned the basic stitches and crocheted a few simple items. However, I stopped before I learned how to read patterns. I really did enjoy crocheting, so I’m going to refresh myself with the basics and then continue on to learn how to read […]

Summertime, Spicy Crockpot Turkey Chili

Summertime, Spicy Crockpot Turkey Chili

Usually, chili is associated with a cold winter day, but Richard and I enjoy this spicy, turkey chili on a “hot” summer day (Here in the Southwest, “hot” means well over one-hundred degrees!). Like most turkey chili, this chili is lighter and lower in calories than a beef chili. However, my spicy chili has a lot more going for it than just the fact that it’s made with turkey. A combination […]

Cherry-Orange Ham Sauce

Cherry-Orange Ham Sauce

We had a wonderful Easter! I’m still thinking about it. Richard’s garden is currently in full bloom. We spent a good portion of the day in the front garden enjoying the fine weather and the flowers. One of the best things about this Easter was spending it with family. We were thoroughly entertained, all day, by my two year old […]
