Here is the chili recipe I used more or less. It also has the added benefit of being healthy. Smiley

Veggie Chili

2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup of chopped onion (I use more I love onion) as well as red and green bell pepper
1 cup of chicken stock (or veg if you're looking for totally meat free)
1 cup each of sliced zucchini and yellow squash
1 can of pinto and kidney beans drained. (I used red and black I liked it better)
1 can of tomatoes
(these are 15 oz cans btw)
12 oz dark beer ( like I said a real stout one like Guinness or Old Rasputin works great)
cumin, chili powder,paprika and dried oregano to taste, start with a tsp of cumin and 1/3 of the others and work from there
you can throw in some cayenne if you want some heat
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
salt as needed
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Saute the peppers and onions with pam or something if you're trying to go lighter on med heat.

Add everything to the pot once the onions and peppers are softened EXCEPT the cilantro, salt and vinegar. Cook for like 30 min and then add the last of the stuff and you're done!

Ghillie, adding a bottle of any dark beer really ups the "meat flavor" in veggie chili. My ex was a sworn carnivore and even he would eat it and enjoyed it.

thats really interesting.  i'm gonna try that.

Ya, I didn't think it would work and the whole time I cooked it the first time he kept eyeballing it suspiciously. It had tons of veggies like carrots, zucchini, tomatoes etc. I think I used a German beer, the key is a malty one like Guinness or old Rasputin. If you'd like I can dig out the recipe and post it?

I think I'd like to try to *actually* try to do this for the next year. Many circumstances over the past few months have caused me to have to move into a smaller place and I need to consolidate. I've already given away a bunch, but really, it hasn't made that big of a dent.

How did you manage to make large enough copies of the symbols? They look so perfect. I may just have to make myself one.

Thanks! They're just marshmallows cut on the diagonal and tossed into sanding sugar. You just frost a cupcake and then stick the marshmallows on. It's on her website.

I have to say, I am in love with this book. It's so fabulous. The authors make adorable, crowd pleasing cupcakes so easy!  Here's my very first shot at "cupcake art"
