Back from the dead--with: Flax 'n Mustard Chili.

Yes, I'm still alive, guys...and still creating yummy recipes, both for the blog AND my cookbook! I'm so sorry for my absence of late...but I have a pretty good excuse...I MOVED TO DELAWARE ON TUESDAY! I officially "moved out"! It's amazing! I am eventually going to UD for college, but I ultimately moved for skating. Nationals is my goal and the training and coaching available to me at home just were not adequately preparing me for this goal. 
I've been here just over a week and oh my gosh--I AM IN LOVE! Not only am I getting to train alongside OLYMPIC TEAM MEMBERS every single day, but I am getting to work with THE MOST AMAZING COACHES IN THE COUNTRY! It's my dream come true. So thankful! 
So yeah. THAT is where I've been haha. Told YA it was pretty legit 👌😂 nonetheless, busy though I've been, I still have to eat of course (DUH! First priority lol) and if you know me at all (which you guys surely do by now...!), you know it's practically impossible for me to just "throug something together"...everything turns into a recipe 💃 needless to say, I've got a TON of new recipes all coming in the very near future 👏👏👏 here's the latest, invented on this RIDICULOUSLY FREEZING DAY (it's almost MAY! Where has spring gone?! 😭). 

                Flax 'n Mustard Chili. 

       Warms you up from the inside out!

   Had to show everyone my new mug 😍😂
