We woke up this morning to several inches of snow and a cloud-filled sky promising more to come. This kind of weather calls for some serious comfort food
. That’s what we’re talking about this week on The Kitchn, and we have plenty of soul-satisfying recipes and ideas for keeping warm to share. What’s your favorite comfort food?
For us, nothing hits the spot on a cold day better than a good stew. Chili, beef and barley, minestrone - you name it, we’ll make it. We love puttering around the kitchen as the sunlight starts to fade and then letting the soup bubble quietly on the back burner for a few hours. Anticipating that first bowl is half the ritual.
Any recipe that fills the house with the smells of good food is comfort food in our minds:
• Beef and Barley Stew
• Chili Con Carne
• Chicken Divan Casserole
• Macaroni and Cheese
What about you? Is there a particular dish that you crave more than any others this time of year?
