Cincinnati Chili and Sweet Cornbread

With the big winter storm we had the past few days here in Montana (11 inches of snow before Thanksgiving!),it really put us in the mood for chili. Ever since I was a kid I've enjoyed Cincinnati Chili which is a chili that is made up of exclusively meat (as in, no beans or vegetables). People are often alarmed at the idea of putting cocoa powder & apple pie spice in a chili recipe and eliminating beans, but have no fear! It's perfect for a cold winter day. And you can always add beans if you want to anyway!
