Grandmother’s Buttermilk Cornbread Recipe

Made this cornbread recipe the other night for the third time.  This makes the perfect cornbread in my eyes, nice and moist without crumbling.  Grandmother’s Buttermilk Cornbread Recipe – Allrecipes.com was the best cornbread recipe I have found and need to make sure I share this recipe.

Turkey Pumpkin Chili

I am a chili lover, especially if the chili is made with kidney beans.  Growing up my mom always made chili with kidney beans. To this day I swear I can eat chili breakfast, lunch, and dinner as long as it is homemade.  My mother’s chili is very similar but usually uses ground beef and omit the pumpkin and pumpkin spice.  Chili is so simple, versatile and forgiving, and is a one pot meal.  A slow cooker would work as well but as long as I am home I love to just simmer my soup in a dutch oven on the stove.

A few years ago I had come across a recipe that added pumpkin.  In the fall if I have any pumpkin in the freezer or extra from baking I make this chili.  The pumpkin purée added a depth and richness to the chili without a pumpkin flavor.

Of course chili can not be served without fresh cornbread.  Sour cream and cheddar cheese are optional.

Crock Pot Chicken Chili

Mr.Picky is not a fan of soup.  Surprise, surprise Mr.Picky actually liked this recipe.  I tried this recipe out over a year ago and have made it over and over since.  I have adapted some of the seasonings from the original post Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili.  The original recipe seemed a little too spicy for my kids, it contained both a taco packet and addition seasoning.  I didn’t use a packet of seasoning so have substituted my own seasonings.  I cut out the junk in the taco packet seasoning and I feel the flavor was much better.

This is a great meal that is quick to throw together, but tastes amazing.  We usually add cheese to our chili but I have found you don’t even need it with recipe.  It is great with crushed tortilla chips added and fresh cilantro on top.
