This is a recipe for my brother who will be chillin’ pretty soon once he gets through with a few more finals (good luck Ian!) Turkey chili is the perfect thing to make when you plan on spending some time in the house studying, cleaning, catching up on reading, etc. All that is required of [...]

A cool overcast day calls for a warm and comforting meal. I have just the thing to suit that craving and best of all, it’s cheap and easy: warm, delicious, lentil soup. I got this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis on the Food Network and loved the simplicity of the dish but had to try [...]
