I've been taking a bit of a blog break to pray about the direction of Cupcakes and Sunshine and this fresh new year. It has been nice to step away from social media a bit. A nice little breather. I've been thinking about many ideas for the new year and I really want to craft, experiment, and adventure. Join me?
Make it Pinteresting Mondays is a new series I'm very excited to begin over here at Cupcakes and Sunshine. I have hundreds and hundreds of ideas on Pinterest boards that I really want to try out. From crafts, recipes, nifty ideas, fitness motivation, organization tips... I want to do them all. :) Often times, my pins on Pinterest just sit around looking pretty, but now I want to put some action into those pins! You with me?
Each Monday, I will feature a project or idea from another site that I found through Pinterest.
I thought it would be perfect to start out the first Make it Pinteresting Monday with a little bit of comfort soup for the soul. It has been so chilly here in Georgia. And there really is nothing better than a bowl of warm chili, good friends, and lots of laughter. I found the perfect turkey chili recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod on Pinterest this week.
Since it is the start of a new semester, crockpot recipes are SO convenient. Toss in the ingredients, go to class, come home, eat!
For Christmas, my bestfriend Carly gifted me this adorable crockpot (thanks, Carls!) and so of course I had to have her over for dinner to try out the slowcooker chili.
(is it not the cutest!)
The Pinteresting details:
My thoughts: I thought this chili was fantastic! I will definitely be adding it to my recipe collection.
Easy? Um, yes! I really don't think it could get much easier. The crockpot did all of the work. And I did whip up some cornbread on the side. Because what's chili without cornbread? It also made lots and lots so I can easily freeze it for later.
Changes I made: Instead of corn, I tossed in a bit of couscous. It thickened the chili right up. I also diced up a couple of sweet potatoes and tossed them in as well. I recommend adding sweet potatoes to chili 100%. They're pretty fantastic.
