It’s a Stay Warm Weekend Special

iciclesChill winds have been blowing through New Hampshire for almost a week now. It looks like this cold weather will continue through the weekend. Not sure what to cook during a deep freeze? Well, my best advice is to think comfort food. And maybe a bit of fiery spice as well.

Here are a few ideas!

Come in out of the cold and relax by the fire. Bring friends together and enjoy a glass of wine. Add a small bowl of Tapenade and a few crackers or raw vegetables to nibble.

Baby it’s cold outside … so why not ask everyone to stay for dinner? Start with a salad. For both easy and elegant, my Red & Green Salad is a great choice for a winter salad.

You can’t beat chili for warm and cozy. My Red Bean Chili with Pork & Butternut Squash is perfect on a cold night. If you like add a piece of cornbread or a spoonful of rice to this one dish supper. Or maybe you’d like a hearty bowl of Harira. This flavorful Middle Eastern soup is loaded with chicken, veggies, chickpeas and lentils.

And for dessert? I’m thinking warm and wonderful … something like like Bananas Foster or maybe Warm Chocolate Pudding.

Enjoy a cozy dinner and bon appétit!
