Chilli recipe from my best friends mom.

FYI, the recipe included a can of pork and beans, ketchup, mustard, and crushed pineapple, in addition to ground beef and kidney beans. Definitely odd but so good.

Note: the recipe also called for a basil yogurt that I didn’t make because it is unwise for me to consume dairy

Half made up, half recipe.


I loved all of these recipes. Most of them were pretty quick to make. Plus, I always feel so much better about eating something like a pie that’s actually made at home versus one that I bought.

I really enjoy focusing on the positive aspects of food; eating healthy is good for your mind and your body. Personally, I also find that cooking is really fun. I like finding recipes that match something I’d like to cook or digging through cookbooks and finding something that I never would have thought to make prior to finding it.

Cooking is fun, so with any luck, seeing some ideas and pictures might provide some inspiration for your future cooking endeavours.
