This weekend my parents will be in town for (hopefully) the Oriole’s playoff game on Sunday at Camden Yards! They first have to beat the Texas Rangers tonight… it’s going to be a good battle! I’m not sure how much time we’re going to have in the house this weekend, but if we do, this is what I would like to cook :


Low-Carb Chili (Original recipe and picture from

I’ve made this before and it’s great. Even before moving to a lower carb diet I didn’t like beans in my chili. This eliminates that and cuts down on the tomato while incorporating more vegetables. The comments associated with this recipe also have a lot of good ideas to add/subtract from the recipe to make it your own. (And I definitely do not use canned mushrooms – ew!)

1 quart water
2 lbs ground beef
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cumin
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, mashed {Minced mine and used way more than 2 cloves.}
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
3 bay leaves
1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms (drained)
3/4 cup chopped green pepper

Brown meat and drain off fat. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, then simmer 3 hours. {Simple, right? I did mine in a slow cooker all day while I was at work and it turned out great.}

  1. Such a customizable recipe! I would go very heavy on both tomatoes and mushrooms – you know, turn my chili into prego.
