This non-traditional chili combines the richness of sautéed mushrooms and red wine with the familiar flavors of chili to give you one of my favorite dishes to enjoy in front of a fire with a glass of Cab Franc. It's also a bit more work as the mushroom mix needs to be...

In honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day this week, I'm sharing a recipe from Chef Lois Frank, a New Mexico Based chef who hails from the Kiowa Nation on her mother's side. You can find her and her brilliant work documenting foods and life ways of Southwest Native American...

As the first recipe for Crocktober this year I'm finally sharing my "Top Secret" all-time favorite curry recipe. This one is easy to make even if you have no experience with making curries (because you'll be cheating a bit here) and you can substitute any kind of bean...
