I know a recipe is a hit when both my husband and my son go back for seconds, and there was just enough of the cheesy chili mac bake recipe leftover for my lunch the next day.

Is there a meal your family enjoys over and over?

    Yum–my family would love this, I’m sure! We are big soup eaters around here and I’d say that’s our go-to in the winter. Something like this to shake things up sounds good.

    That sounds delish! I wonder if it would work just as well either meatless or with those morning star Crumbles in place of the beef. I’m trying to go Vegetarian again. 🙂 I’ve pinned it to try !

    My husband will only eat corn muffins if they are Jiffy. I’ve tried sneaking him homemade ones and he immediately knows the difference. Oh well. This looks delicious!

    I swear, those corn muffins are just too good to be true. I haven’t had them in ages and my roommate (who never cooks) made them and I begged her to give me a couple. Added to chili? Divine 🙂
