The start of a new year usually means a bit of a bustle. School's back in session, work is back on, and everything you pushed off during the holidays suddenly needs to get done. Times like these call for tried-and-true recipes with familiar and satisfying textures -- chewy, gooey, crispy, and tender.
The last month also brought some of us quite a bit of snow, and perhaps a little extra time off. Snow days are the perfect opportunity to start new projects or test recipes you've been meaning to try but never had the time to. Even so, after all these weeks of hibernation, we're certainly looking forward to getting outside and shedding our layers. Until then, we'll wait out these last weeks of winter by inviting over friends and family for comfort food, cold weather-camaraderie, and maybe even a taste of spring.
