The best red chili you'll ever eat
As part of my decision to start sharing my recipes, I decided it’d be best to provide more than one, at least to start. This one is also a pretty easy recipe, just takes some prep time in the morning and then everything else is easy. Chili is one of those things that’s easy to come up with an okay recipe for.
I love to cook. Like, really love to cook. It’s partly getting to come home after work and make something I enjoy, partly just this Zen-like state of creation which I find so relaxing.

What I'm Reading: March 2019
As my frequent visitors probably already know, I am a voracious reader. Given that, I thought it might be nice to put a recurring feature on this blog for a change, covering books that I’ve read recently. Just quick blurbs, nothing major.

Books have always been a part of my life; there were always books at home, and as a kid I went to the library almost weekly. I’d check out twenty books, read them all, bring them back, and check out another twenty. I remember, when I was maybe 12 years old, drawing up a floor plan of my dream house.
Playing Star Realms for the first time
A few months ago, I got involved in yet another Humble Bundle, because I have a terrible addiction to Humble Bundles. This one, notably, got me a copy of Star Realms (you can find their website, unsurprisingly, at starrealms.com), which I forgot about immediately after ordering (par for the course, really, as far as I’m concerned).
