Chicken broth. Chicken stock. What’s the difference? Most folks use those terms interchangeably so that leads to the question…Is there a difference?

Do an internet search for vegetarian chili and you’ll find a ton of recipes. Unfortunately, most of them are super complicated with 47 different ingredients and at least 12 precise steps to perfection. I exaggerate of course, but seriously, why do they have to be so dang difficult?! This is real life. Ain’t nobody got […]

Nothing says sweater weather better than good ol’ fashioned homemade chicken soup.  You don’t even have to be sick to enjoy it…although it was almost always my momma’s remedy for “whatever-ails-you” while I was growing up.
