The winter months are drawing nearer, and to save yourself from the biting cold, seek refuge in these warm, delicious recipes. From dinners to desserts, this list is comprised of the objects of all your food fantasies during the winter. So sit down by the fireside and reminisce with yourself about days gone by of warm recipes, your mom’s brilliant cooking, and snuggling by the fire. With that, let’s get into ten warm recipes that you’ll love for this winter.
1. Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken pot pie is to die for during the frigid winter months. The mouthwatering aroma infuses your home with memories of childhood. The creamy filling moistens the soft crust with every bite. The chicken is tender and mixed with the buttery filling. This recipe contains a mixture of herbs in addition to both frozen and fresh vegetables. But you’ll hardly be able to notice the difference. Truly a delight to eat by the fireside.
This ravioli is a warm, mushy recipe perfect for the winter months. Don’t let the heavy load of ingredients deter you. This dish is relatively easy to make, and it’s absolutely jampacked with flavor. The sauce has the rich flavor that you would expect without being inundating, and the pasta itself is incomparable. Just don’t overindulge with this tasty dish.
3. Beef Stew
Of all the incredible, warm recipes I tried for this article, few can match up to this paragon of beef stew. The roast beef is tender and flavorful. The many different flavors mesh nicely. And the red whine is subtle but still strong enough to reach your taste buds. In sum, this dish sizzles with spice and tender memories of mom’s cooking. Be prepared for it all to be gobbled up before you can make yourself a dish. However, on the slight chance that you do try it, it’ll be well worth the time spent.
4. A Pizza Covered In Toppings
This pizza is laden with toppings and a heavy dose of cheese. You’ll want to sleep for days after this meal destroys your insides, but my god is it good. The cheese and tomato sauce don’t overwhelm the other flavors. Every topping is present in an admixture of coma inducing goodness. I just wish I could have had more helpings.
Like most warm, Italian recipes , this spaghetti is heavy and addictive. The sauce is thick, and the ground beef is amazing. Perfect for a long day of work in the biting cold, this dish is a hot, seasoned masterpiece to come home to. Sprinkle some Parmesan on top to elevate the flavor of this quick and easy dinner. With sixty four grams of carbohydrates and nineteen grams of fat, if this dish doesn’t render you comatose, you’ll wish it did.
6. Broccoli Cheddar Soup
I was never too fond of broccoli cheese soup, but this dish surprised me. The consistency is creamy and the cheddar cheese robust. I could hardly believe the harmony between all the different flavors—the cheese, the carrot mix, the shallot, the broccoli. Each mix beautifully in a dish that I can hardly believe I was able to cook. Curl up next to the fireplace and avoid the cold with this hot, thick dish. Warm recipes like this one are a must for winter. Come to think of it…maybe I should give broccoli cheddar soup another chance.
7. Lobster Bisque Soup
Heavy cream and buttery lobster combine in a dish that is quite literally blended to perfection. For this dish, you’ll need a blender and a place for your chaw to drop. The garlic surprisingly mixes well with the other flavors, though the black pepper is probably the most notable flavor. Immerse yourself in a blanket, play some tunes, and relax with this delicious meal. I would recommend not letting anyone else know about it though.
8. Hot Cocoa
Next on the list is the prototypical hot drink for a winters day. And now with a bit of vanilla extract to add an extra layer to the flavor! This hot cocoa is much richer than the typical store-bought blend. The cocoa dominates the overall flavor, but the vanilla extract is a nice, sweet touch to the familiar taste. The recipe recommends marshmallows, whipped cream, and cinnamon sticks to pack on the sweetness. This recipe will bring back sweet, warm memories of long conversations and words communicated but not said.
9. Cinnamon Rolls
This recipe is a gooey treat to savor during the winter season. The overwhelming sweetness pops with a taste reminiscent of family get togethers and Christmas joy. The cream cheese on top boost the sweetness. Each and every heavenly bite wraps around your tongue in a warm embrace. Your family will likely adopt this sweet tradition all throughout the year, but especially in the winter months when being ensnared by your covers is the best feeling in the world.
10. Beef Enchiladas
I’m ending this list with what is probably the most brutal and satisfying dish of all, Betty Crockers beef enchiladas. This dish may not be as emblematic of the holidays as the previous one, but it sure packs a heavier punch, one you’ll keep masochistically crawling back to. I don’t usually have beef enchiladas for dinner because of how unforgiving they are to the stomach. But for this article, I was willing to indulge myself in such a cheese filled wonder. And it certainly didn’t disappoint. The turkey is great, but the enchilada sauce is what will keep guests hovering over the dish. I’m usually not too fond of Mexican food, but this meal is definitely the exception.
