    Chicken and Dumplings


    One of my favorites on a cold day. They are very simple to make. I would give you my recipe, but I am one of those who doesn't measure, I throw things into a pot and season to taste.

    However, here is a quick and easy recipe I found that you might like.

    Beef Stew


    I love beef stew. I'll admit I like it more tomato than beef. Give me a sleeve of saltines or a piece of cornbread and a big bowl of stew and I am one happy girl.

    For me, cooking stew is an all day thing and if I'm working all day then I don't get stew, but if I start it in the morning and put it in my crock pot, then I have dinner waiting when I get home.

    Potato Soup


    Potato Soup is so easy to make and quite affordable. This is my go to cold day dish when I don't have a lot of time and I want something warm. It is best served with cornbread and topped with cheese and bacon and chives if you wish.

    Again, I cook by throwing things in. So if you are making this for the first time, try this recipe.
