Chili sampler from

When I received the chili sampler from Justin at for the A Chili and a Spoon challenge, I had several ideas running through my head. When I saw the habanero chili I knew I had to make a spicy chicken soup for my aunt. Unfortunately, with Thanksgiving and a bad cold I didn’t have the stamina or time to put together the soup, which required making chicken stock from scratch. So I thought, why not make a chili ice cream. There were a few mild chilies in the sampler and I decided to use the de arbol chilies. Instead of using the ice cream maker I borrowed, I decided to make it the more time consuming way which involved a hand blender. The ice cream came out very smooth and creamy and well worth the time. The next time you make ice cream, try it with a few chilies. Continue reading “Chili Ice Cream”

Seafood is low in saturated fat (the kind that leads to heart attacks) and cholesterol. It is high in protein and low in calories. Four ounces of white-fleshed fish provides about half your daily protein requirement at a cost of just over 100 calories. Despite the fact that many fish live in saltwater, they are low in sodium (they have osoregulators that keep the saltwater out). And seafood is a great source of vitamins and minerals, since the flesh contains most of the elements present in seawater.

It contains a kind of polyunsaturated fat called omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids reduce the tendency of the blood to form clots.
