I've started on next month's newsletter, but I haven't gotten very far. I'm finding that it's a little difficult to write quality articles that I think people might actually care to read about. So I'm asking here - is there anything you'd like to read about that is related to handmade soaps or other bath & body products? Any ideas?
If I don't know something off the top of my head, that's okay. I actually like to research. Last month I wrote about shea butter. Where it comes from, what it's good for, and some of the many reasons we love it in our skincare products.
Of course we usually add any of our new products in the newsletter. But we don't really have any this month. We also highlight and offer a special sale to our newsletter subscribers in every issue, and February is a great time for Valentine's Day offers. I've just hit a creative wall with what to include about our special informative piece.
In completely separate affairs, I have a recipe to share! A food recipe! This is SO good in cold weather, but also light enough for warm weather too. I've been making it for several years now and we're still loving it. This chili, like most others, is really fast to start and smells wonderful while it slow cooks all day. Chipotle chili powder used to be a little hard to find, but it seems to be most everywhere now.
White Bean and Turkey Chipotle Chili
1 pound uncooked ground turkey breast
1 med. Onion, chopped
4 medium garlic cloves, chopped
3 16 oz. Cans chicken broth
2 tsp. Ground cumin
2 tsp. Oregano
1 to 2 tsp chipotle chili powder
3 16 oz white beans, rinsed and drained
¼ cup limejuice
¼ cup cilantro, fresh coarsely chopped, plus extra for garnish
Spray large skillet. Cook ground turkey, onion and garlic over medium-high heat until turkey is browned. Drain off fat.
Add turkey mixture and remaining ingredients to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat setting for at least 4 hours.
Enjoy! If you try this, let me know how you liked it.
