  • Friend shares recipes

    I recently went to a get-together at the home of an old friend Kathy Young and had some great food. She shared the recipes with me and I'd like to share them with you.

    Kathy and her husband, Harold, are known for their chili. I first tasted it almost 30 years ago, and they're still at it.

    Kathy served delicious chili, of course, but she also added a couple new recipes (new to me, anyway).

    The Hot Corn Dip is amazing, just super good and super easy. What more could you ask for?
