My favorite part of The Greenhorn Gourmet is that the author and chef includes her "epic" fails allowing the reader to connect with her on every level. This month includes a disastrous chili recipe. By letting us know her mistakes in the kitchen, Holli allows us to learn from her failure. Also, she does it for us so we don't have to mess up our kitchen with a disaster. ;)

About Holli Mayer & The Greenhorn Gourmet
Holli started with various dinner foods, then expanded to pastas and breads, gaining badges of honor with cuts & burns, destroying kitchen utensils and developing a much better appreciation of the challenges faced in the kitchen. Holli wants to create a healthier kitchen for everyone within a reasonable budget. She thinks even the greenest greenhorn can create anything they've eaten at a restaurant with ease. She believes that anything processed or packaged is not insurmountably impossible to create from scratch. In fact, it should be created from scratch without all the harsh preservatives, chemicals, flavoring and who knows what else.
Holli Mayer's talents go beyond the kitchen. She is attaining a degree in chemistry and she is also a well-established illustrator and photographer. Holli is a true renaissance woman and an inspiration to aspiring cooks everywhere. Look out Julia, here comes Holli Mayer and the Greenhorn Gourmet!
