Pumpkin Chili with Black Beans and Sausage

Pumpkin Chili with Black Beans and Sausage

I love to sneak in veggies when no one is looking. The easiest way to hide squash or pumpkin is to incorporate them in soups. But, have you ever tried it in chili? It adds a creaminess that will make you wonder what the secret ingredient really is.

Pork Roast with Sweet Kraut

Pork Roast with Sweet Kraut

This delicious dish was shared with me over 30 years ago by the mother of a dear friend. I have tweeked it a bit in those years but after cooking it at least a hundred times, I have never had one person not love it! The long cooking time ensures a melt-in-your-mouth main course. While it is a long cooking time, the prep is, actually, very simple and takes very little time. The sweet, tangy kraut sauce is the perfect combination with the tender pork. Get ready. You’re gonna love this one!

Chocolate Pie with an Oreo Crust

Chocolate Pie with an Oreo Crust

If you’re in the market for a smooth and light chocolate pie, then you’ve come to the right place! I do not like a lot of chocolate pies out there because I’m not a fan of pudding as the filling. I appreciate that pudding pies are a nice shortcut, but they have nothing on a homemade chocolate pie!

Also this pie is light, yet rich and decadent at the same time. There’s also no heavy cream in the filling so you can eat a lot (maybe the whole pie?) without feeling too weighted down or bloated from too much dairy. Hopefully I’m not the only one that feels that way…

The Oreo crust is the perfect base for the chocolate pie and is just the right amount of crust to filling. It has a nice snap and makes for a great bite that just sends this dessert into swoon-worthy territory.

Serve with whipped cream and you can’t go wrong!
