The Pioneer Woman does an awesome job explaining the recipe in step-by-step pictures with a pinch of humour throughout. Some people use beer, some people use red wine instead – the result in either case is amazing!
I haven’t yet met a person who doesn’t love a creamy rice pudding. The best part about it is that you can put your own twist on it by dressing it up with raisins, cranberries, grated dark chocolate, and/or nuts.
When I first came across this recipe, I knew I had to make it because I’ve always eaten beans with a spoon. And no matter how messy this meal can be if you decide to use your fingers instead of fork and knife, you will NOT be disappointed.
A Tex-Mex classic, a tortilla soup is sure to warm your heart during cold winter days. This is a vegetarian version full of healthy goodness. It’s a shame they don’t serve tortilla soup in Taco Bell or Mucho Burrito.
We all know this is a kid’s favourite and probably a parent’s favourite too, as it’s the easiest thing to prepare in the world. Ok, maybe not in the world but it really is super easy. Go ahead and make your child’s day with this classic!
Just look at this picture. The picture alone makes me salivate. What a meal to impress a special someone or serve for a special occasion. Pumpkins and squash in general are so underrated!
As an avid lover of Indian cuisine, I have browsed numerous websites searching for ideal recipes. Veg Recipes of India is by far the best one I have come across so far. Why you will love this dish – it’s a one pot meal! Most of the ingredients can be found in ethnic stores and Indian bazaars. Serve with naan, roti, chapati, or basmati rice.
My favourite hot drink! I saw this picture on Pinterest and thought I needed to try it. The recipe has 7 ingredients with additional 2 you can use (chilli pepper and cinnamon). I used a regular pot instead of slow cooker. Everyone in the family loved the hot chocolate!
Sweet potato is considered one of the world’s healthiest vegetables due to an incredible amount of nutrients including Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, C, potassium, dietary fiber, manganese, copper, niacin, and others. Not only is sweet potato healthy, it is also super tasty and versatile.
Noodles are great because they don’t take long to prepare. They can also be pared with anything – meat, vegetable, fruit, and nuts. This is an easy and delicious recipe published in New York Times.
Writing this post has made me really hungry! I hope it has inspired you to try some new recipes and food you haven’t tried before.
It should be noted that I purposely omitted chicken noodle soup and chilli even though both are staples during winter. I wanted to make way for some less known recipes as well as include a couple of classics.
