Yesterday I was pretending to be a fancy pastry chef (in my brain) and found myself writing complicated dessert recipes that had long names and forced me to use my non-existent French accent. Do you say croissant like a French person? Don’t do this. Josh used to do this and I put a stop to it. “Cru-sauuuuunt.” No, you’re American. Stop.

Anyway, as I was feeling fancy and on top of the world but then like it always does, the universe humbled me. Yesterday it came in the form of making me sneeze mid-mascara application. Has this happened to you? The results were mascara smudges all on my eyebrows and upper cheeks. I’m pretty sure it was to serve as a reminder that while I can do fancy dessert from time to time, deep down my roots are in normal people foods like spaghetti and meatballs, biscuits and chili.

Luckily for me, new cookbook. It’s filled to the brim with holiday recipes. Each chapter is a new holiday. As I was thumbing through it, I became enamored with the “Game Day” chapter, which is somewhat strange seeing as there isn’t one football watcher in my household. (Amelia is a tennis-watcher, actually.) I looove game day food, so I wasn’t surprised when I wanted to make every single recipe. I settled on this Chipotle Chicken Chili. It was chilly…for LA, anyway, and I’ll use any excuse to make soup in socks.
