I posted this 3 years ago when I started my blog. It was in my 5 all time recipes (thanks Christian!) But it bears repeating, and I have made some slight changes, since we are living a lo carb lifestyle now and we are skipping the Pasta. So it needs to be a dish for … More PASTA GENOVAISE…NORTHERN ITALY TO SOUTHWEST ARIZONA!

Today I am going to tease you a little because I am going to make you go to my blog to get the chili recipe! I found out yesterday that a lot of people (even though they get my emails and read my recipes), have no idea how to go to my blog! To date … More MAMACITA’S ESPECIAL CHILI….I won!!
