I missed my Magazine Mondays post last week but couldn’t miss this week because I’ve received so many amazing contributions! I’m really happy to see this event taking off. Sharp-eyed readers will notice that the MM logo has been added to my sidebar. It still needs a little work but I’m getting there. By clicking the link, you get to a page that explains the history of MM and the requirements to take part.

For my own submission, I chose to feature one part of one of my very favourite recipes from the February 1990 issue of Gourmet: Chili Con Carne with Chili Cheddar Shortcakes.


This is THE chili recipe in my family. But more importantly, the Chili Cheddar Shortcakes are not-to-be-missed. While I don’t always make the shortcakes when I make the chili, there’s no question that the shortcakes make the chili taste that much better.

There’s not much to the recipe. You can make them in about 20 minutes and enjoy them with soup, stew and braises or just on their own with lots of salted butter. But they really are best with the chili.

And finally, here are the submission for this week’s Magazine Mondays:

Joy from the aptly named The Cooking of Joy made my mouth water with French Red Onion Soup.

Tamy from 3 Sides of Crazy (that’s an awesome blog name!) made Baked Caramel Pears and some really cool Tomato Spaghetti cups.

Wandering Coyote of ReTorte made a comforting Butterscotch Pudding.

Nurit of 1 Family. Friendly. Food. makes a lovely Butternut Squash Galette.

My sweet Jenny of All Things Edible made a Grilled-Fennel Couscous.

Lori of Lori’s Lipsmacking Goodness makes a lipsmacking Shrimp and White Bean Cassoulet.

Remember, if you’ve posted about a magazine recipe, send me the link and I’ll publish it in my next MM post.

Have a great week, everyone!
