Slow Cooker Tomato Meat Sauce | Kathy's Kitchen Table

Stephen celebrated his 5th birthday last week! It’s hard to believe, and yet it isn’t. Have you ever heard the saying, “the days are long but the years are short?” So true! So in honor of his birthday, I asked him what he would like for me to make him for his birthday dinner. He immediately answered with “spaghetti.” Ok, easy enough, I can do that! I knew I wanted a sauce with meat that I wouldn’t need to cook right when family was arriving for his party. Read the rest of this entry »

As much as I love to cook and bake there are some nights when I need something quick. And not just a Rachel Ray 30 minute meal either. I need something much faster. This is especially needed when we have to be somewhere around dinner time or when I need to be doing things with kids. I think it’s important to have quick meals in your repertiore so you can avoid going to the local fast food restaurant. Read the rest of this entry »

Cincinnati Chili

Have you ever lived in a city or town that is famous for a certain type or style of food? Have you ever moved away from that city craving the famous food? My husband and I moved away from Cincinnati over 7 years ago. While we cannot believe it has been so long, we still crave certain foods and flavors of that city. Cincinnati is famous for several food related items. Chili, Graeter’s Ice Cream and LaRosa’s Pizza being just a few. Since moving here, our local Kroger has started carrying the cans of Skyline. I just don’t think that is the same coming out of a can. Plus, we have also found pints of Graeter’s at Kroger! Now, if I could just figure out how to replicate a LaRosa’s cheese pizza at home I would be all set!

I have found over the years that if you are craving something that is usually from a restaurant, just make it at home! While this recipe is not exactly like the restaurant, it is pretty close. The flavors of Cincinnati Chili are as unique as the way it is served. There are no beans in this chili (although you can add them), the spices are not something you would find in a traditional chili and chocolate is even used! You serve this chili over spaghetti noodles and top the whole dish with shredded cheese. This is traditionally know as a 3-Way. If you want to add beans, feel free; that would be called a 4-Way. And you must serve this chili with Oyster crackers. It’s a rule.

Enjoy this little taste of Cincinnati!
