    All of Gary’s soups and stews are delicious! He made two wonderful meals while Karin and I were off skiing-a fabulous spaghetti and tostados with fennel that were to die for!

  2. OK Gary . . . I thought you were such a good friend. You have just given your daughter such an unfair advantage over ME and the keys to the kingdom. I was actually going to participate in the cook off until I read your blog. Now, I’m just going to sit back and become a “taster” and let the votes roll in for “Kristina and Dad’s” chili. I wouldn’t stand a chance. Don’t forget, I’ve tasted your chili . . . and loved it.

    This was wonderful! I soaked dried beans instead of using canned beans though.

    Ok – Couldn’t stand it… had to break out my Chili recipe today! Simmering in the crackpot all day and I am heading into the kitchen right now to make some Z Biscuits to go with. Thanks for the inspiration… again!
