~~December 21 is Winter Solstice. It is the day of year with the shortest amount of daylight and marks the official beginning of winter. Winter Solstice represents rebirth and regeneration. I have always liked that idea, it gives me something to look forward to. Our December quote below applies to life as well as cooking.

~~From our readers. More on Gebhardt Chili Powder. Tamara at Mild Bill's sent an e-mail to me. I am sharing with you per her permission.

Hi Vannie -

I saw your recipe for Prize Winning Chili and wanted to comment about the
Gebhardt Chili Powder. Gebhardt is by far the most popular chili powder in
the US and is a very excellent product. It is widely available in the
South/Southwest in most grocery stores.

Our company - Mild Bill's Spices, etc. - also sells Gebhardt chili powder
along w/ about 30 other varieties of Chili Powder and Chili Blends. We
ship daily to those areas where good chili powder isn't so readily available.

Thanks for your time,

Tamara "Spice Queen" Dees
Mild Bill's Spices, etc.

Tamara, I thank you also. I love hearing from my readers. Here is the article/recipe that garnered interest Prize Winning Chili. You can visit Mild Bills in Related Links to your right.
