Simple Turkey Chili
I thought this was great! I am only giving it five stars because I felt it was a bit too much water. My chili never really thickened as much as I'd like it to. It was a bit too watery, but overall the flavor was great. I used black beans and omitted a couple spices, simply because I didn't have them. I would definitely make this again. It was quick and hit the spot! Even my 6 year old liked it and he doesn't often try new things.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties
Such a simple recipe, but SO delicious! This made a lot of filling so I used white bread with the crusts cut off instead of the baguette. Thank you!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings
*Disclaimer: I used my own sauce (honey mustard dressing and teriyaki) so my review is based solely on the method of cooking the wings. They were fantastic! Crispy and delicious and JUST like a local place here where they have the best wings. These tasted just as good and they were so easy to make! I will always make my wings like this from now on. Thank you!
