Comfort Food, Anyone?


We all crave classic comfort food in the heart of winter, but who wants to start from scratch after a long day? Even though stews, casseroles and soups are not complicated to prepare, many benefit from longer cooking times-and being made ahead. Take advantage of the time you do have on the weekend to get organized and give yourself some no-cook nights during the week. You can select recipes from this book that make enough for you to serve half on the day (for up to four people), and have another same-sized portion remaining to store in the freezer for another time. As they say, cook once, eat twice. Plus, there are dozens of fast side dishes in this book to serve alongside. Who doesn't love that idea? Food to Love Soups, Stews & Casseroles is available through February wherever magazines are sold. 96 pages, $12.99
