Welcome to January – A Cozy Dinner Special

Pleasant_Lake_Winter_MistBrrrr! It’s January, alright. In between a thaw or two or three, we can count on blistering, can’t feel my face cold. What to do? Cook cozy of course. Bake spicy muffins and cakes and stir up a stew or chowder or two. Then, invite friends over for a cozy evening.

Light a fire, open a bottle of wine and relax while dinner bubbles on the stove. Here are a few suggestions:

Everyone loves a little cheese with their wine. If you want to take it up a notch, whip up a batch of my Warm Gorgonzola with Caramelized Onions & Walnuts to start your evening.

Sit down to the table with a colorful salad. If you have not tried my Rainbow Salad with Black Olive Vinaigrette, please do!

Next, take a New England classic in a new direction. Chowder is a winter favorite in the northeast. My Spicy Shrimp Chowder might not be your Nana’s Chowder but it is just as delicious. (And spicier!)

Stay with the spicy theme through dessert. Think cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Both my Applesauce Cake with Brown Butter Icing and Carrot Cake are as cozy as they are delicious.

Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
