Since I updated my best chili recipe back in October with new, beautiful photos that show off how delicious it is, so many of you have been LOVING it. I knew that recipe was a winner, but lurking in the back of my archives with less-than-impressive photos, it was always overlooked.

Back atcha with another nut butter! I’m both excited to share this with you, and a little bit sad, because I’m sitting here looking at the bottom of my empty jar of this vanilla bean pecan butter.

My last couple tablespoons were drizzled all over my breakfast this morning and it tasted so good, but using up the last of something so delicious is always bittersweet. No worries though – I can have another batch ready to be devoured in no time because it’s so easy to make. [Read more…]

I’m going a little nut butter crazy, you guys. I currently have four jars of assorted homemade nut butters sitting in my pantry, and recipes for four more different flavors written in my recipe notebook.

Luckily (or not), they’re disappearing just as quickly as they’re getting made. A jar of this homemade Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter was the first to go, but luckily, I had two jars of this good stuff. [Read more…]
