Colorful Three-Bean Chili

This recipe is inexpensive, beautiful, and best of all it tastes great! If you like your chili hot (spicy) you may need to add some hot sauce or whatever you like. I think it has just the right amount of zing. Feel free to substitute your favorite meat in place of the ground turkey.

Black Friday Pie

This is a tasty and exciting way to use all of your Thanksgiving leftovers, and you can modify it to fit whatever leftovers you have.

Hearty Chicken Noodle Soup

This soup is great for a cold day, or when you are feeling a bit under the weather. I just leave the pot on the stove and eat a bowl whenever I feel good enough. It always makes me feel better.

Easy Cheeseburger Macaroni

Great when you're in a hurry.

Simple Smoothie

This is similar to other recipes but it uses the whole 12 oz. can of juice and no sugar. Easy and delicious! Try some different kinds of juice--our favorites are orange-pineapple, pineapple, and grape (but not white grape--that one didn't turn out so great).

Pumpkin Cake Cookies

I got this recipe from a parent of one of my students and it has become a fall tradition in our house. I can't tell you how many people have begged me for the recipe.
