Happy Thanksgiving!

I love nothing more than hosting the holidays! And Thanksgiving is the best kind of holiday. No gifts, no hype, no pressure! The whole day is focused around food and family! Period. As long as the bird comes out tasty, you’re good to go! This year I used fresh evergreens to decorate the table and garnish the food. It’s the little details that can turn your ordinary dinner into something that looks extra special and give it that holiday sparkle!

Chili for Cheaters


I call this my “Chili Cheat” because it’s just too easy to count as actual cooking. With only 5 ingredients in 1 pot…it has all the flavor of chili without any of the hard work! My mom made this all the time when I was growing up & now I do too.

Brown 1 lb. Ground Beef

In the same pot ADD:1 qt V8 Juice, 2 cans Kidney Beans, 2 cans Italian Style Stewed Tomatoes

Cover the top with chili powder. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down & simmer for at least 1 hour.

Serve with shredded cheddar & sour cream (optional)

Easy Sausage & Peppers Recipe

Crockpot Sausage & Peppers

Street Food at its finest. This is the quickest & easiest way to wow your guests! Even the culinary challenged can handle this one. Just set it and forgotaboutit! These savory sausage & peppers will make you feel like your walking the streets of the SAN Gennaro Featival in Little Italy.

✔️Sweet and/or Hot Italian Sausage

The amount depends on how many people you’re serving. Figure at least 1-2 pieces of sausage per person.

✔️3 Peppers

I like an assortment of green, red, and yellow. Cut them into thick strips. (Not too thin because they cook down to almost nothing.)

✔️1 Onion

Chop into big pieces.

Throw it all in the crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours. Serve inside a nice sub roll or hot dog bun.
