15 Cozy Weekend Meals – Perfect fall and winter meals to cook when you’re hunkering down on the weekends.

15 Cozy Weekend Meals

When the air is cool and crisp, darkness falls early, and that achingly familiar smell of a wood burning fire drifts past my nose, I naturally find myself wanting to be inside, nose in a great pager-turner under a soft blanket in front of a warm fire, with dinner simmering away on the stove, braising in the oven, or stewing in the crock pot. These are the kinds of cooking days I live for, don’t you?

So here are 15 of my favorite longer-cook “cozy weekend meals” that will make hunkering down over the next few cold and snowy months seem just a little bit easier.
