15 Cozy Weekend Meals – Perfect fall and winter meals to cook when you’re hunkering down on the weekends.
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.
French Beef Stew (Beef Daube) with Creamy Fresh Herb Mashed Potatoes
