Cold Weather Comfort Foods

Warm Up with these Cold Weather Comfort Foods

       There is nothing more comforting than a hearty and hot meal on a cold day.  If you are looking for ideas on how to feed your family and help you all get through those cold and long winter nights, look no further!  Plan ahead and make some (or all) of these meals over the next week or two!

    Pot roast is a favorite of most families.   It is the most flavorful, comfort meal that is a staple Sunday evening meal for so many of us in America!  It takes a bit of work to make this but it is TOTALLY worth the effort.  Quick and easy is not always best and this is one recipe that proves that fact.







       Chili mac is a mash up of two great foods...chili and macaroni and cheese!  Yum.  It is the ultimate casserole in my opinion.  It has so much flavor because it pairs two comfort foods together.  Your whole family will go crazy for it.

           I have several chili recipes but this is, by far, the best one I make.  It was over 100 degrees yesterday here in SE Oklahoma and I still made chili and we all tore it up.  In other words, it was delicious!





     I don't know about your family, but my family LOVES goulash.  It's one of those "feel good" kinda meals.  It ain't fancy but it sure is delicious and filling.  Anyhow, here is how I make it.

      My family loves Chicken & Dumplings.  If they had their way, they would eat this 3-4 times a week and never tire of it.  I know everyone makes theirs differently but this is the way I have been cooking mine for years and people always swear this is the best they've ever tasted. Hope you'll try it out for your family and they love it too. 








        Tater tot casserole.  I don't know about you but just the words make me drool!  This is a favorite in our house.  Yes, I know it is not the healthiest recipe but by golly, it sure is delicious.  Everyone in our family absolutely loves it and is often requested.  We serve this on Saturday night for supper and we look forward to Saturday's because of it!

       This is my recipe for Old Fashioned Beef Stew.  I have nurtured and tweaked this recipe over the past 30 years and have it perfected.  It is hearty and delicious.  Mmm.  A true classic.  Nothing is more inviting!

    I LOVE potato soup.  To me, it is one of the most satisfying; most comforting of all soups.  This recipe makes a huge pot of creamy, delicious, and amazing potato soup.

     There is nothing like a big pot of beans with ham to warm you up.  It is a real staple each winter in our home.  It is filling and makes a great meal when served with some of my cast iron skillet cornbread!

    This makes a really satisfying dinner and is not just for cold days.  I make this all year long because it is so hearty, rich and smells divine.  It has so much flavor that you will want to make it again and again.







      My husband loves anything with pumpkin and recently he went out to do some errands with his mother.  When they were done, she stopped at a coffee shop and bought him a pumpkin spice latte and he loved it. 

 I tinkered around a few days and came up with this recipe. My hubby said it tastes even better than that high dollar one that his Mom bought for him.
