3-Way, My Way Chili

I am very particular about my chili and there are few I deem good enough to eat. In a meat verses beans chili kind of world, I'm all about the meat. This version is my take on the Cinncinatti chili that has been popularized by the famous Skyline chili. I tried to stay true to the familiar ingredients found in this chili. However, I tweaked it ever so slightly to make it my own. The "3-Way" comes from one  of the various ways this chili is ordered up North. "3-Way" meaning chili, spaghetti, and cheese. If you have to have your beans (4-Way), feel free to toss them in. I'll just look the other way.

Hippy Wheat Pizza Dough and Simple Pizza Sauce

Since I was "let go" from my job, I've returned to my comfort... my domestic side. Hence, the birth of this blog and the desire for cooking and crafting. I wanted to make pizza for the kids not only because it's their favorite thing to eat, but also because I needed something inexpensive to make with our tight budget. However, just because we are pinching pennies doesn't mean I'm willing to sacrifice our healthy eating habits. So, I decide to take a crack at making my own pizza dough recipe. And, I must say, I think I hit this one out of the park.
