Warm and Comforting

I must apoligize, I have started a news semester in school, and things have just been really hectic. On days that I have class, Mr. G is kind enough to make dinner, but I still have the itching to get into the kitchen and whip up something fantastic the nights that I am home. Since it has been so chilly lately, I decided that last night we would have chili & cornbread. My chili recipe is nothing fancy, but it will warm you up when you are cold.


2-cans mild chili beans
2-cans diced tomatoes with chilies
1-can mexicorn
1lb. ground beef
1-diced onion

Brown beef and onion. Drain off beef. Put remaining ingredients in and set to boil. Once it comes to a boil, lower temperature and simmer 20 minutes. Serve with cheese & sour cream.

A Little Bit of Heaven

For the past few days, I have been under the weather and last night, I decided to make a nice comfort dessert. The recipe is truly titled "Chocohotopots", but at the Seese's, we like to call this "Little Pots of Heaven". I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as we do.


1 cup dark chocolate morsels
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 tablespoons flour

Preheat oven to 400. In a microwave-safe bowl melt the chocolate and butter until silky smooth. Remove and let cool.

Stir together the remaining ingredients. Add the cooled chocolate. Pour into 4 buttered ramekins. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately with powered sugar, whipped cream, or ice cream on top.

This is a nice treat when you are feeling down or under the weather.
