Soups & Sweet Treat for 11.10.11

Greetings Daylight Savings Time!!!  I have been awake for what seems like a whole day already!  It is nice to have a bit of extra daylight in the morning but…come 4 o’clock it sure will be getting dark!

This weeks soups are different variations of chili that were featured in this months Fine Cooking magazine.  I have always loved this magazine for its tried and true recipes and it’s emphasis on technique.  Many food magazines focus more on “stylish” lifestyles rather than food.  This magazine emphasises the food.
