We can't speak for the alliances of our test kitchen dream team, Josh Cohen and Sara Jenkins, but we know that they feel the same as we do about this time of year. Once February—the belly of winter—hits, the mentality is "the more the merrier": more friends, more people crammed onto the same couch around the same TV, more cozying up together. More good beer. And more good, hearty food to go with all of it.
