Favorite Winter Recipes: A Collection

I’m saying Hello to Monday with a few of my favorite winter recipes.

I don’t know how it is where you live, but here in New York,  winter is still in full force.  We are in a homecooking, comfort food kind of mood.  That’s why I decided to share my favorite winter recipes with you.

Breakfast Recipe

I love a hot breakfast.  Cold cereal is fine for June, but in March, when the wind is blowing and the snow is piling against the window, I want something hot.

Recipe: Egg Sandwhich On the GoIn my post on 5 Cooking Short-Cuts, I show you how to cook an egg in a perfect circle.

These breakfast sandwiches can be made ahead of time and frozen.  All you need to do is pop it in the oven or microwave and you have a hot breakfast on the go.  That’s a must have kind of recipe in my house.  My son can even eat one on his way to the bus stop.

Lunch Recipe

There’s nothing I like better than the smell of baking bread.  Well, nothing except maybe spreading that fresh baked bread with a thick layer of butter.

Jam and cream cheese spread all over this bread is good too, and don’t even get me started on grilled cheese sandwiches.  You’ve never had a good grilled cheese until you’ve had one on homemade bread.  Seriously.  I just wish they were low-calorie.

Recipe:  Easy Homemade Bread - fresh baked

I have the easiest homemade bread recipe.  It’s time tested and reader approved.  When you try it, let me know how it turned out.  I suspect you’ll make it often.

Dinner Recipe

Rustic March Stew is not only hearty, but it is also tasty and filled with good foods.  It will stick to your ribs and nourish body just in time to shovel those last few snowflakes.

Recipe: Rustic March Stew, a one pot meal

This is a one pot meal that is easy to make.  There are a lot of ingredients, but they are all basic items you can find in any grocery store and I guarantee the prep time will be worth it once you take the first bite.

Not long ago, I went out on a limb and made this recipe when we were expecting guests.  I wasn’t sure what they would think, but they loved it just as much as we do.

This next recipe may the easiest and most versatile recipe I make.  I’ve made this dish using chicken, pork, and even beef.

One-Two-three Chicken & Gravy: Easiest and Most Versatile Recipe, One pot cookingOne-Tw0-Three Chicken & Gravy is such an easy recipe, it’s impossible to mess up.  Even if you are a terrible cook (and I have first-hand experience with terrible cooking), you can impress your friends and family with this simple dish.

Dessert Recipe

Chocolate Balls with M&M’s come off a page ripped directly from my handwritten recipe book.  My mother introduced me to these little chocolate treats and they are all things wonderful.

Ladies, feel free to use them for medicinal purposes, because I believe they are the cure for hormones gone wild.  There’s just something about chocolate that is so very soothing to the female soul.

Chocolate Balls with M&M's: A RecipeI even love them frozen.   Just don’t blame me if you get addicted.

Well, friends, that’s a look into my recipe archives.  These are some of our favorites and I hope you’ll enjoy them too.

Above all, I hope spring will be here soon, because I am So Over winter!

How about you?

Fancy Little Things

    My mouth is watering. The stew is on my menu for next week. I’m going to be good and refrain from the chocolate balls {for now}.

    I think we are going to have the stew — love anything with green in it – yummy! I am not sure what I am going to do when winter is over. I can make some mean chili and feed a family of 7 for under 10 a meal! Summer just doesn’t scream chili, although it does scream ice cream. Ice cream for dinner anyone?

    I am SO trying that 1-2-3 easy chicken. And the stew looks delightful, too. I’ll have to pass that one on to the chef in the family. (*hint – it’s NOT me*) 😉

    Now I am hungry. 😉 These all look delicious.

    I am soooo over winter. I spent several hours on Saturday in a just a long sleeved tshirt working out in my garage. Today we are expecting 6-10 inches of snow. :( I think the storm is heading south east so maybe it will miss you guys. Have a great week! :)
