December is drawing near, and most of us are watching the temperatures drop. The time is right for cozy, warming dishes, and two bloggers have got it covered. This month they hosted a recipe roundup of Comfort Foods.
These two should know a bit about staying warm and well fed in the winter. Ivonne, of Cream Puffs in Venice, hails from Toronto. Orchidea, of Viaggi e Sapori, is Italian, but these days she cooks her comfort food in Stockholm. Together they’ve rustled up an impressive collection of recipes from fellow food bloggers, all dishes that are bound to make you feel like hunkering down in your kitchen on a long winter’s night.
The recipes range from classic Americana comfort such as mac and cheese, tuna noodle casserole, and chicken pot pie to Asian noodles—Thai Rad Nah, Iron Lady’s Rice Noodles, and Chinese Vegetable Noodles. There are favorite family recipes like Mom’s Roasted Chicken and Grandma’s Meatballs. Then there are the desserts (‘cause what else comforts like chocolate?), including New York Style Cheesecake, delicious-looking Millionaire’s Shortbread, and Walnut Chocolate Cake. There’s even a collection of pudding-like dishes—Tapioca Pudding, Chocolate Mousse (en français), and Baked Rice Pudding.
If this collection of cold-weather comfort food fails to hit the spot, head on over to Matt Bites for a collection of hot cocktail recipes (‘cause when carbs and chocolate fail to comfort, there’s always booze).
See, aren’t you liking winter now?
