Justin's Hoosier Daddy Chili

Rating: 4.56 stars
This is a wonderful chili recipe that I have used to win chili cook-offs in Indiana. It's hearty and spicy award winning chili that is sure to hit the spot on a cold winter's night. The key is in using name brand tomato soup, I have tried it with others but haven't gotten the same results. Your friends will never guess the secret ingredient. Enjoy!

Sugar Cream Pie I

BBQ Pork Sandwiches
Rating: Unrated
A combination of roasting, then barbecuing with sauce, makes this pork a delicious Southern-style recipe. Takes some preparation but well worth it. Excellent for feeding a crowd!
Rating: Unrated
These are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The recipe was passed to me from my mother-in-law and my husband and I eat them all of the time. If desired, top with grated cheese and heat in microwave until melted.
