A warm meal on a cold night

It seems to be snowing everywhere this week!!  Whenever it's this cold out, I always crave a hearty stew with red wine and lots of crusty bread.  One of my favorite sites for cooking inspiration is Kitchen Bellicious.  Recently she posted a recipe for a beef stew with mushrooms and artichokes which sounded perfect for a snowy night! 
Well, the recipe came out perfect.  It is loaded with flavor and lots of veggies!  My husband was excited because I rarely cook red meat. :)


Delish!!  What do you crave when the weather outside is frightful?

  4. There is nothing like a good stew/soup/chilli on a cold winter's night (and seriously, this weather is leaving me so unmotivated to do much of anything. Can we fast-forward to April, please??)

  7. Mmm, looks delicious! I'd have to take out the mushrooms, but otherwise it sounds great! And I crave hot cocoa or ice cream, depending on how bundled up I am!

  10. Ok YUM.
    Yeah I'm so into ice cream right now. And cold drinks. And cold dishes that require no cooking whatsoever!
    Did I mention it is summer here and we've had about a week of REALLY HUMID weather. It looks like it's winter but feels like summer. Crazy rain and sticky-ness.
