what's for dinner?

don't you feel like this is the question of every day. my day goes a little something like this: wake up, make coffee, get dressed, kiss matilda, work work work, call sam and ask, "what do you want to have for dinner?" his response is always, "i don't know, what do you want?" blah blah blah.

i present to you... dinner!


this hearty winter veggie stew is what i've been raving about. such a great way to throw a bunch of vegetables in a pot and make them taste sooo good. annette is such an incredible cook (i can vouch) so i knew this soup would be love at first bite.

speaking of hot dinners that cook slow. we are obsessed with bison chili. i'm going to ask my friend if i can share the recipe, but for now just know that it's the BEST chili i've ever had and it's the only thing i cook in a crock pot, well except for meatballs on special occasions. gosh i'm a tease.


sam makes this incredible ginger chicken stir-fry that is so heavenly. we love ginger. carrot ginger soup is another one of our faves. ginger has really amazing benefits, like flu prevention! here here.

so, what are your favorite throw-together winter dinners?

comforting is key when it's cold and dark.

Everything sounds delicious, but you really have me wanting to try that bison chili. Yum!

Ooo, I'm so glad you posted the veggie stew recipe! I've been looking forward to it! It sounds incredible! Thanks for the other recipes as well! I love new ideas for dinner -- especially warm, cozy dinners given how ridiculously cold it is right now in Boston!

Some of my favorites that I've made this month have been:

Dandelion Green Tart:

Turkey Chili Soup:

Good ol' beans and cornbread or roasted vegetables have been hitting the spot too!

Definitely spaghetti. Whatever needs to be used in the fridge gets thrown into the pot to be drowned with spaghetti sauce.
