This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Inspired by Books”. The last time we had this theme, my friend sent me a bunch of recipes from the official Harry Potter cookbook and with it being all cold out, stew sounded good.

Everything about this dish was delicious and definitely worth the wait. Even better were the left overs after all of the dumplings and veggies absorbed the liquid, then I just added some beef broth to reheat it.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Olympics”. I love this theme because I am kind of in love with Olypmics, summer or winter, do not care, love it.

This definitely cured my craving for one and I am glad that I have enough to make a few more.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “spice blends”. So I decided to make my own Italian Seasoning from Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme, and Garlic Powder. You can use store bought Italian Seasoning or play with the spices a bit.
This dish was the completed part of a dish created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Bottled Sauces from Scratch” and my second theme was “Comfort Food”. While the homemade BBQ sauce satisfied the first theme, this completed dish definitely was comfort food. There are not many foods that I consider more comfort food as Chili especially on a cool night. Continue reading “Choco-BBQ Chili”
