I am not the world's greatest cook by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love to take part in the Lewis & Clark Festival Chili Cook-Off each year. Two blue ribbons hang proudly over my desk, but I'm not braggin'. I'm also not sharing my super-secret recipe for "Anne James' Mighty Fine Chili."

(BTW, that's not it in the photo, but that sure looks good!)

    I will share this (click HERE) short history of chili from nationalchiliday.com, and you can click HERE for the recipe for Pres. Lyndon Johnson's favorite Pedernales River Chili from what's cooking america.net.
