Crock Pot Beef and Black Bean Chili

Crock Pot Beef and Black Bean Chili

Though I’ve had my reservations about my crock pot (steamed vegetables are gross), there is no doubt that crock pot chili is where it’s at. This recipe is easy enough for a weeknight (no browning the meat!), but tasty enough for company. You’ll notice that I haven’t posted chili yet on my site –...

Morning Glory Muffins

Pinterest is trending pumpkin cookies but honestly, since I love chewy, crispy-edged cookies and pumpkin produces soft cookies, it’s biscotti all the way....
