LIVING

I like saying I’m obsessed with things, even when I’m not actually obsessed with them (but most often I am), to indicate that it’s an amazing thing and I recommend it for everyone. These obsessions come in many forms; they can be people, places, things, made-up things,...

I didn’t win a prize, but bragging rights and the knowledge that my Chili is the bomb was enough at the moment.

We love Chili in the Starks household, during the Fall and Winter I make chili at least once a month. Maybe beef chili, maybe chicken chili. Cortez (my husban...
