Cold-Weather Comfort

Banish the blues with a slow-simmered pot of steaming goodness. These winter soups and stews are just the thing to chase away the chill. 

As Southern cooks know, there’s a special kind of magic that happens when you toss a handful of well-chosen ingredients into a pot and let it bubble away on the stove for an hour or two!

In the mood to keep it classic? Whip up a batch of Traditional Chicken and Dumplings—this crowd-pleaser is always welcome at the table. For a sweet finish to your comfort-food feast, pair it with a cozy dessert, such as Snickerdoodles or Apple Cranberry Crisp. Or add a much-needed taste of sunshine with a citrus-kissed treat, such as our Lemon Custard or Lemon Buttermilk Cupcakes with Double Citrus Glaze

If you crave something a little heartier, try our Stuffed Pepper Soup, a brand-new take on a time-tested favorite. Beat a blustery day with a bowl of robust, flavorful Rustic Beef Stew—all you need is a loaf of crusty bread and a simple salad, such as our Greens and Radish Salad with Warm Red Wine Vinaigrette, to round out the meal.
