January Cooking: What Foods & Recipes Are You Craving Right Now?

Snow arrived full blast here today, and I'm eyeing a bag of sweet potatoes and another of beets, thinking of the warmest, coziest thing to do with these bright vegetables. I crave warmth and color and soft, gooey things to eat this time of year. What about you? What are you craving? What do you wish with all your heart you were eating tonight in this chilly weather?

Soups are always top of mind, of course, and risotto is also high on my to-cook list this time of year. (Maybe a sweet potato and beet risotto tonight — yum!)

What else is inspiring you? What do you crave in January?
