Winter’s Favorite Foods!
Now is the time to counteract those cold nights with some hot food! Get cozy with these winter favorites!
Looking for a recipe to impress the family? A quick read through of the ingredients in this Ribeye Roast reveals a crust of chopped pistachio, coriander, thyme and black pepper. Roast time calls for 2 ¼ to 2 ½ hours – not bad for 10 servings! As if that crust isn’t decadent enough, the accompanying Holiday Wine Sauce features sliced mushrooms, shallot, cabernet sauvignon, pepper and thyme to really take it to the next level.
This classic French bistro dish is fantastic as a starter or on its own as a meal, specifically served with warm crusty bread. The term “Meuniere” translates to “a miller’s wife” in French and is commonly applied to fish when it is dredged in flour and cooked in butter and white wine. Despite the name, this recipe features no flour, just the amazing flavors of white wine, garlic, shallot, butter, and lemon on fresh mussels and angel hair pasta.
A bright and colorful dish, this recipe is a medley of caramelized sweet potato, winter squash, carrots, parsnips and red onion. Finished with a drizzle of Carrot Top Cashew Pesto, this vivid arrangement will taste as good as it looks! Seasoned with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and thyme, you can have it ready in about 45 minutes.
Not all of winter has to be heavy, hot comfort food! This salad is a lighter yet festive alternative, appropriate for everything from lunch meal prep to a brunch accompaniment. All you need is bacon, onion, dates, walnuts, kale and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar to make it happen! Another fun part is ingredients can easily be swapped or added. Maybe raisins instead of dates, or slivered almonds instead of walnuts!
There’s no doubt about it – in the chilly winter months soup can be a short (and easy!) salvation from the cold! This recipe brings a soup and sandwich fan favorite – tomato soup and grilled cheese – together in a one-pan meal that “disappears at our house!” as one tester put it. Simply arrange the cheese sandwiches (spread on the outside with butter) in a 13×9 baking dish, pour a milk-egg-tomato sauce mixture over the sandwiches, sprinkle with additional cheese and bake until cheese is melted and golden brown (about 25-30 minutes).
Designed for those who may be new to baking, this recipe uses basic ingredients with clear directions on making your own pull apart cinnamon roll bread. Complete with a to-die-for glaze and simple yet scrumptious filling, we can almost bet there won’t be leftovers! Not so confident about the “from scratch” part? Check out this recipe by Pillbury.
