The crisp winter air can be refreshing but it sure does nothing to keep you from freezing. A nice hot mug of your favorite winter beverage can get the defrosting process started but to really warm yourself up we think a hearty meal is the way to go. We’ve collected five of our favorite recipes from the Better Homes and Garden’s magazine to keep your mind off the chilly weather.
1. Broccoli-Cheese Soup
A true classic and quick to make, this recipe marries the two in a whole new way. In just twenty five minutes you and your family can enjoy the creamy taste of broccoli and cheese. We absolutely recommend doing the bread bowl method mentioned in the recipe, although you can keep the bread on the side.
2. Classic Pot Roast
Another traditional recipe and a must have in the winter time. There is nothing quite like a good pot roast to fill the house with a delicious aroma and warm the mood. This recipe is great for parents who don’t have time to stand over the stove. All you have to do is put it together, leave it to cook, and come back to it when you’re ready to eat a delicious meal. A nice hearty roast will fill up your stomachs and keep you warm.
3. Thai Curry
If you’re getting bored of the same recipes day in and day out we recommend you try this curry recipe. The recipe is fully customizable, though yellow curry with chicken is our favorite. The spice levels are up to your preference but regardless of how hot you want it, the spices are sure to keep you warmed up. It can be served over rice, with bread, or on it’s own.
4. Moroccan Chicken and Cauliflower Stew
Another dish full of spices, this stew is beautifully aromatic and delicious. After you have all the ingredients prepped you can leave it to cook on its own and come back when you’re ready to feast. It can be served over couscous or eaten alone. Either way it is a mouth watering experience.
5. Texas Chuck Roast Chili
Everyone has that classic chili recipe that they grew up with and it is a classic, but how about trying something different this year? This recipe packs a delicious punch and gives more of that beautiful Latin flavor sure to bring the whole family together.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our collection of recipes. We definitely recommend trying at least one or two of them this year. Keep warm and Expect Better
