Winter comfort food recipes. To keep you warm.

  1. Slow-Cooker Bacon Macaroni and Cheese, Make classic mac and cheese even easier with your slow-cooker — and even tastier with the addition of bacon.
  2. Red Lobster-Style Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
  3. This maple glazed banana bread is an updated take on the classic banana bread recipe! This recipe begins with my mom’s banana bread recipe, and ends with a sweet maple glaze that is out of this world delicious! Your life may never be the same again.
  4. Spicy Turkey Chili, Making chili healthier might seem boring—who doesn’t want some beef—but we found a way to make ground turkey taste ultra flavorful with garlic, jalapeño, cumin, and chili powder.
  5. Slow-Cooker Turkey Chili, Whether you need a game-day meal for a crowd or just want something warm and cozy on a cold day, this slow-cooker turkey chili is sure to please!
  6. Pasta bake with spinach, ricotta, and tomato sauce, There’s nothing as reliable or comforting as a pasta bake to get you through the week. And best of all, baked pasta is an endlessly adaptable dish, providing a perfect blank canvas to mix and match vegetables, sauces, and varieties of cheese. This recipe is essentially a deconstructed spinach and ricotta cannelloni, one of my favorite baked pasta dishes.
  7. Linguini with slow-roasted tomatoes, At the end of summer, when tomatoes are abundant, I like to roast them by the trayful. I roast them slowly and over low heat until they’re sweet, sticky, and sitting in rich tomato juice. As summer draws to a close, linguini with slow-roasted tomato sauce is just the thing to make for a Sunday lunch.
  8. Adam Richman’s Spaghetti Pie, Adam Richman shares a fun way to serve up spaghetti: Just turn it into a pie!
