Verde Chicken Chili

Verde Chicken Chili

Fall is in the air.  Which means football, leaves changing, pumpkin everything and soups, chilis and stews.  Last weekend I was craving a good chili but wanted some meat in it.  I have made white chicken chilis before but wasn’t really wanting that.  Recently I […]

tater tot breakfast bake – texmex style

  [dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s that time of the year again – Opening Day!  Detroit’s unofficial (drinking) Holiday.  Where people come together to celebrate their love for baseball, the first signs of spring and a day of debauchery.  This year I realized I haven’t worked on Opening Day […]
