Merry Christmas everyone! I’m sorry I have been MIA for so long. I plan to be back in the new year. My Mom had a major stroke in mid Novemeber and I have been caring for her and almost living in the hospital lately. We’re bringing Christmas to her there.

Come join me and then I’ll share my favorite – really delicious – hearty vegetarian chili recipe. || Read more
