I hope you all have been enjoying the holiday season! We woke up yesterday morning to snow on the ground here in Portland and that doesn’t happen very often. The snow is still here today and we are bundled up inside with the fire roaring with comforting food on the mind. I’ve gathered together some of my favorite winter comfort food recipes–some are quick and easy like gnocchi with triple cheese sauce and cream of asparagus soup, while other recipes take a long time like braised short ribs and smoky beef and chipotle chili but are totally worth the extra effort. I hope you find a few recipes that your family will enjoy.
