Baked Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

We’re always thinking of using pumpkin for all of our baking, and dessert recipes but somehow we forget that pumpkins themselves aren’t actually sweet.

Hamburger Stew

This week I wanted to share one of the recipes that reminds me most of my Grandma Opal. Hamburger Stew is a lot like a traditional beef stew only less expensive.

Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

Tater Tot Sloppy Joes

Tater tots are mighty delicious and incredible all on their own. We know this.

They’re super easy… Read more »

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
