  8. mmm, I love chili! I have yet to find the absolute best chili ever – it’s one of those things, you know? Sadly, I don’t even know if I know what I want from it. I will have to give this recipe a try, it looks awfully tasty an simple.

    Snow in October; normally I would have scoffed as such an idea. However, last weekend we had our first snowfall as well[North Dakota aka South Canada]. I have ordered a super coat for this winter in preparation.

  9. Wow – national chili month- but do we really need a reason to celebrate. Sounds hearty and delicious. Plus the cornbread sounds spicy and yummy.

  12. I love chili! And this one looks really tasty. Who knew there was a whole month dedicated to chili?
    And I’m jealous you have snow. I don’t ski either, but I just like snow.

  13. I’ve been thinking of making a pot of chili for my husband, and this one looks great! Hope you and baby are doing well, too!

  14. Our weather has been so weird this month, that I haven’t thought about chili yet… but, your picture has me thinking it’s going to be time soon! I love the cornbread you made, too.

  15. I have to admit I was excited when it snowed. I love winter. Anyway, your chili sounds fantastic. I love that it has bacon in it. 🙂 The cornbread also looks fabulous.

  16. Congrats on your zuppa gig. I’ve got to get there and I bet your writing will just do the trick to get me throught the door. I love that cornbread recipe and the chili looks like a big warm hug.

  17. hi! I just stumbled upon your blog and i love it! thanks so much for the experiments. I too am a fellow experimentational baker and i appreciate your enthusiasm. (sometimes my husband gets mad because i can’t make the same recipe twice.

    I am going to make this chili as soon as it cools down. ok… maybe sooner!

    thanks for the excellent blog.


  18. i sure didn’t know that about october, although it makes perfect sense. your chili sounds fantastic, and i’m even more smitten with your cornbread. ah, comfort. 🙂

  19. Yum! I don’t really need much warming at the moment, but if I did I would dig into this like a mule eating an apple!

    Congrats on being part of the new blog! I checked it out, can’t wait to see more!

  20. I saw this recipe the other day & knew I had to try it. I cooked up the beginning part early this am, before my husband got up. He came out & said "something sure smells good" I told him I was working on supper!!! It is now in the crock pot, warming away!!!

  21. Chili seems to be popular in the blog world this week and I have to say yours looks very, very tempting. I’d quite like to get my spoon and get stuck right in!

  22. I was so sad about the snow too. It’s way too early for that! But, on the bright side, I do love chili and I guess it’s a perfect month to make it.

  23. Ok YUM 😀 I am from Utah too, I think I have everything but the bacon for this recipe I need to give it a try , Carm
