Easy Deer Chili

Y’all please don’t laugh at me, but I never even tried chili until after I was married.  I had no idea what the weird red soup was all about.  Truthfully, it scared me. Now, I love it and I have to share my totally random, combined recipe I use.  Oh, and yes, this recipe calls […]

Healthy “Fried” Bananas

I got this idea from a post on Facebook. Someone out in the blogging world (I can’t remember who) came up with this idea, but I changed the recipe to make it a tad healthier. It is super easy (or I wouldn’t do it) and takes about 10 or so min. Get you a good, […]
