5 dinners to make this week

Jan 12, 2015

We’ve hit that mid-winter slump this week, heading into the middle of January. Now that the Christmas decorations are put away (fine, actually, my tree is still up, I’ll admit it!) and the holiday cheer has faded, now we’re just left with 3 (4?) more months of cold, freezing weather. 




However, let me remind you, that with cold temperatures come the time we rarely have in nicer weather to cook some amazing, delicious, recipes. These might take a little more effort than your average canned spaghetti and meatballs, but that’s what makes them more fun! Grab your significant other, or some girlfriends, and a bottle (or three?) of wine, and cook up some of these recipes from some of my favorite food blogs. 

PORK LOIN WITH WINE AND HERBS

SHAVED BRUSSELS SPROUTS SALAD 

Jalapeño Stovetop Mac & Cheese

BACON SCALLION GRIDDLE CAKES

TUSCAN KALE, TURKEY SAUSAGE AND KALE SOUP
