When I get the cold-weather blahs, I rely on a few simple winter comforts. One that I turn to over and over again during this time of year is the comfort of having a simmering pot of stew or chili on the stove for hours on end. Clean your home, watch a good movie, and let the flavors deepen on their own. Sounds easy enough.

All 12 of these recipes deserve a spot on your stovetop this winter. From a vegetarian pumpkin chili to an African beef and peanut stew, you'll have company all winter long.

It's really hard to mess up making a standard chili or stew. Sure, you can burn the bottom of your pan, or maybe under-season the recipe, but if I've learned anything about winter cooking, it's that if you put some stuff in a large pot with some stock and let it simmer for a few hours, it will probably taste pretty good. That's the magic of a great Dutch oven or slow cooker, after all.
