7 Layer Chili

Nothing beats out chili for comfort food between the wonderful flavor and mouthwatering smell, what’s not to love about it.  Just sitting down with your family eating a hot bowl of chili accompanied by corn muffins, is the best way to end your day. All the ingredients come together so beautifully- between the hearty beans/crushed tomatoes, the bold seasonings and the always wonderful cheese and sour cream.  Vegetarians do not worry this chili is 100% vegetarian friendly but, my fellow meat lovers don’t fret.  Just add some ground beef or ground turkey and you will be all set.    This chili is super easy to make ahead of time, freeze it and then reheat it for dinner.  We hope you enjoy this comfort food craving of ours and Enjoy.

Stuffed Pepperoni, Mushroom Stromboli

Say Good Bye to pizza pockets because this Stromboli is off the charts.  It is super easy to make and we love eating it in our house.  To me the best part is you can fill the stromboli with whatever pizza fillings your taste buds desire.  You can either make homemade dough ( what I did)  or buy pre-made dough.  For some extra flavor be sure to have some marinara dipping  sauce on the side or drizzle it over the stromboli once it’s done being cooked.  We hope you try out this Stromboli and Enjoy it with friends & family!!

Garlicky Parmesan Pretzels

This might be the fastest & easiest snack to ever be on the planet.  The combination of the garlic and parmesan is on point.  Personally the best part about this snack is it only needs 4 ingredients and takes 6 minutes.  Yes 6 minutes.  Funny story- The 1st I made these I accidentally put in 1/4 cup (instead of 1/2) of garlic & when they came out I was really confused why they turned out super garlicky.  How got 1/8 of a cup from 1/4 I don’t know. 2nd time around I put the correct measurement in and it tasted superb!!  With all that being said you should really give this recipe a shot, because in 6 minutes you have a snack that you can’t get enough of!!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

These chocolate chip cookie bars put chocolate chip cookies to shame.  They are more dense and 2x the amount of chocolate chips of a regular cookie.  You can add nuts or different M&M’s like almond, regular or caramel.  Also these are great holiday treats for teachers or friends!!  They are great with a glass of milk or dipped in peanut butter.  So do yourself a favor and don’t keep balling cookie dough or making sure they don’t fall apart when they are fresh out the oven;  just make these cookie bars instead.  PS- they also leave your house smelling mouth-watering when they come out of the oven!!
