That green chili sounds yummy. Would you like a recipe on zuccini bread?
With this being a good time to buy it?

Have you made this green chili? The most amazing green chili I ever had was thick you could eat it like soup! It was good on everything! Is this one thick or is it the thinner variety?

Daybyday4-2day - I would love to get your recipe for zuccini bread.

Oh great one - This recipe is not very thick, It's good. I like using real chopped garlic instead of the powdered, but it is just my preference. Actually my daughter has the bed green chile recipe, but it is a family recipe from her husbands side of the family and she is not allowed to share it with me.

The recipe for orange Oatmeal cookies sounds delicious and healthy. I copied it but noticed it does not call for flour. Is that really how the recipe reads?
Have you tried this recipe yet?

My favorite crockpot chili is from Leanne Ely - it has sweet potato in it!

I like the first two, but not the artichoke dip. I'm not really big on artichokes.

Thanks for the link...I'll have to give it to The Missus and see if we can find more goodies.

The artichoke dip sounds delicious. Thanks for the link. I always seem to be stuck in a rut and make the same meals week after week.

Oh yummm, that orange oatmeal cookie recipe sounds delicous, a winner for this weekend in my house!

mountain mama - That's the recipe. I copied it right off of Chet's web page. I have made cookies before that do not call for flour. The oats hold it all together.

texasblu - chile with sweet potatoes? sounds interesting.

Fred - I love the artichokes!

Teri - I sometimes get in a rut too when cooking.

Michelle - Let me know how you like it. Mountain Mama is curious about a recipe with no flour.
