When it’s chilly outside... it’s CHILI inside...

Use organic bison, chicken or turkey in my veggie and black bean chili to keep you fully nourished and warm and cozy from the inside out all winter long. This is a great, simple, make-ahead, “batch” cooking recipe... and, as with

Working for a busy public relations firm, I entertain clients often, and it can be hard to eat well when you are trying to
