This is a shout-out over someone having the balls to tie-in timeliness, good ol’ capitalism, and a hunger—for something delish.
Scarlett Dunn is the author of Cookbook for Deplorables: Make the Kitchen Great Again.
Her words: “As if fighting an invisible enemy hasn’t been enough of a challenge for everyone, we’ve also had to listen to an inordinate amount of antagonistic political discourse for the last four plus years. To stay sane, we need to take a step back and try to find some humor in these trying situations. It was important for me to laugh again in my everyday life, and I thought many of you might enjoy a little laughter as well. Since we are all confined to our homes now and cooking more, I pulled out some of my old recipes, and if needed, fortifying cocktails to help you deal with the crazies.”
Some of Scarlett's recipes include:

And this gem:
Corrupt Congressional Chili
(Not as many beans as millionaires in Congress)
3 pounds ground chuck
1 medium white onion
2 ½ tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons chili
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
½ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1 (15-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
1 (15-ounce) can hot chili beans
1 (15-ounce) can mild chili beans
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
In a large skillet, brown ground chuck and onions over medium heat. After it’s browned, mix in garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. I like my chili on the warm side, but you can use less red pepper flakes if you like it milder.
In a large pot, add tomato sauce, beans, diced tomatoes, and sugar. Add meat mixture to the pot. Simmer for 1 hour. Some people like spaghetti in their chili. If so, cook about 4 ounces of broken spaghetti and add it to the pot for the last 20 minutes of cooking.
*You can also use premade chili powder (like McCormack) if you prefer not to add your own spices.
