Winter Warmers: Recipes to Raise Temperatures

If you are anything like me come winter and my bear-like hibernation habits sets in. Are you a sun chaser?  I spread out from room to room chasing the patches of sun so I de-thaw and warm up. Cold feet and getting out of a warm bed are the things I dislike most come winter.  I cannot survive without fluffy socks, hot water bottles and food that warms the cockles of my heart.

I am sharing a few dishes and recipes that are my winter warmers.  The way I cook is somewhat by taste and feel.  So if you want to add more salt, by all means, draw outside the lines!  There are no rules to adding a touch of this and that to get the mouthwatering result.
