Yesterday I asked the question: “What’s your favorite Winter meal?” The answers have been so fun to read through and I’ve gotten so many new ideas as to what to cook for the remainder of this season.
This plate of awesomeness you see pictured is my favorite Winter meal. It’s filling, rich and so so good. Bolognese will forever be my favorite thing to eat on a cold night. It never isn’t satisfying to me. This rendition highlights cremini mushrooms, which give it a nice earthiness and meatiness.
For the recipe and other stuff, head over to The Mushroom Channel’s blog. (Throughout the year I’ll be sharing some other recipes I created for them featuring our favorite ingredient…mushrooms!)
This is a story about a girl and dinner…and how she never cooks it.
This may come as a shock but after cooking for this space and doing my freelance stuff, the last place I want to be (usually) is in the kitchen washing dishes. Cooking is never really the deterrent, but the dishes keep me away. And plus, it’s so nice to go out and about sometimes. But recently, all I’ve wanted to do is cook dinner. It also helps that Josh does the dishes. Teamwork is pretty chill.
A few weeks ago I went to my neighborhood grocery store and picked up a few ingredients for an impromptu bolognese with some ground lamb I already had in the fridge. I kind of thought nothing of it, in fact I actually fell asleep midway through because I was coming down with a cold. I came this close to burning it AND the house down, but luckily I didn’t and I’m alive to share this recipe with you, because it turned out to be one of the best things I’ve made in quite some time, so said Josh.
