The tea's a-brewing and the fireplace's a-crackling. We're getting Cozy at Home with warm-and-cuddly ideas for cooking, decorating, and more—so grab your fuzzy slippers and join us.
If you're looking for the fastest way to get people into the kitchen, go start a braise. The wafting aroma of deep-caramelized onions and browning meats is irresistible—enough to draw even the most content homebodies out from under their burrows.
We'd be hard-pressed to find a singular dish that competes with a braise's ease (one pot!) and comfort; it's the closest equivalent to a food hug, and we've already started gearing up for the cold-weather months that lie ahead.
Scroll below and start bookmarking your favorite one-pot wonders. And if you get home late during the workweek, jonesing for a slow-simmered meal? Well, we've got plenty of slow-cooker and Instant Pot/electric pressure cooker–compatible recipes for you, as well.
What have you got simmering? Share your cozy food favorites below!
