My Favorite Winter Comfort Foods

I know my friends in the Northern Hemisphere are still enjoying warm temperatures and sunny days.  Here in Australia, we’re slap dab in the middle of winter and we’ve had some pretty cold days and nights.  Needless to say, I’m still in comfy, cozy mode and that doesn’t just include my decor.  There’s nothing better than warm, delicious comfort food to forget that the wind is howling at the door and the temps are dropping.  I previously shared these scrumptious recipes last year and thought now was a good time to share them again.  So, make note of the delicious meals so that when winter comes knocking on your door, you’ll be ready!

Tell me, who doesn’t love a good, hearty soup in winter?  My family definitely does, and this is one of our favorites.  I found this family fave in my “2010 Christmas with Southern Living”  book.  There are several variations of this recipe on the Southern Living website, but I couldn’t find the exact one from the book, so I thought I’d go old school and type it out for you.


Are you a meatloaf lover?  My family is a bit divided on this humble meal, but I found a great recipe (again from Southern Living) that combines meatloaf with scrumptious mashed potatoes and it has my whole family in agreement…it’s a new favorite!

Chicken is one of my favorite staples to cook with.  It’s versatile and there are endless recipes for it and this one from Southern Living doesn’t disappoint!  Now, I know we normally associate cobbler with dessert, but the savory, bacony (I just made that word up) biscuits that top the delicious chicken and vegetable mixture will delight family and friends alike.  It’s definitely one that promises to make you feel warm and cozy inside!

My family can’t get enough soup during the cold winter months and another one that’s very popular in our house combines two classics…cheeseburgers and potatoes!  Who wouldn’t love this?!

I hope this will give you a start once the mercury begins to drop and those cold winds start blowing.  I’d love to know if you try these out and what you think.  Bon appeti!
