Cornbread Chili Casserole

Let me just say that I'm not really a chili fan but this recipe has made me one! During one of my weekly trips to Tarder Joes I stopped by in the back to see what they were sampling one day. It was their cornbread over turkey chili and it was fabulous!

The weather is finally cooling down a bit {knock on wood} so last night I finally made it!

Super easy and only 4 ingredients!


















2 bags of Jasmine Rice (cooks in 3 minutes in the microwave)
2 cans of Turkey (or beef) Chili
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese
1 box of cornbread

I made a 9x13 batch which would easily serve 8

Step by step:
first layer is rice
pour chili over rice
sprinkle cheese over chili
















Pour cornbread mixture over cheese and pop it in the oven!
I cooked mine at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Your cornbread will determine how long you cook this dish for since everything else is cooked!
















40 minutes later your house smells amazing and dinner is ready!















Slice... or scoop 
 and enjoy a ricey, chili, cheesey meal topped off with cornbread.

If you're a Paula Deen at heart like me then spread butter over the top of the cornbread.
This meal does not disappoint! It cost about $10 and serves 8-10 depending on portions and side dishes. If you don't have a Trader Joes near by...I'm sorry! You can find all these ingredients at your local grocery store.
It's a great meal to whip up on a cold fall night or when you have the gang over for football. 

I don't know what I would do without Trader Joes in my life and  5 minutes from my house!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
