If you’ve been a follower (and if not, I’d love if you would; signups for email, facebook, and twitter are to the right) ya gotta know by now that I am a Soup lover, and def a Chili lover (they are all on my main index for Soups Chowders & Chili.) I have all kinds of Chili on my site ranging from old school to family-friendly, green to red, and a few grown-up ones. This Spicy Black Bean Chili is in that last category.

Do you know what I think has never really gotten it’s due? Mexican Style Ground Beef. I think too often at home we spice up our ground beef with taco seasoning which is fine, but you don’t get that great Restaurant Style Mexican Ground Beef flavor and the taste and texture that comes with it.

African Tomato & Onion Salad

Awhile back, I put out a recipe for my new fave burger, Feta Stuffed Harissa Sliders. Those are such juicy, fun, zippy burgers; check them out if you didn’t see them when I posted them. Since I used Harissa in those burgers, a North African condiment of different peppers, I thought it would be fun to find something from Africa to go along with the burgers. So here it is, African Tomato & Onion Salad.

So how about it guys, do you read magazines any longer? I get so much information online that they sometimes seem obsolete. And yet I manage to subscribe to a couple of food magazines because they are just so inexpensive. And they inspire me – when I manage to get them open and actually read them! That’s how I fell in love with the idea of this Moqueca Brazilian Seafood Stew – I saw it in Food & Wine Magazine.

I’m not sure when it all started. Maybe when I ran down to Minneapolis (in rush hour, no less) and picked up some gorgeous Feta at Bill’s Imported Foods (I love to give a shout-out to a local business) so I could make Bulgarian Clay Pots (not the pottery, the recipe) and ever since then, I can’t stop eating Feta or recipes with Feta in them! And so maybe it isn’t such a surprise that I’d make Honey Roasted Feta.
