Brrrr! 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!)
Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
