Even though winter and I aren’t the best of friends, it does bring me joy within the kitchen. Sounds strange, but the cold weather gives me the perfect excuse to whip up some delicious and hearty meals. Not that I don’t do this in the warmer months, but with the weather being frigid, I get creative with those foods that warm you right up and make you forget about the cold and snow.
Yields 6-8 servings
