Sake and Ginger Soba Noodle Salmon Stir Fry.
You guys, it’s SO cold outside.
Like we’re talking negative temps and icy cold snow, but hey, it sure is beautiful. PLUS, cold temps just mean it’s time for cozy winter food that’s gonna warm ya right up. Yeah!!
Seeing as it is January though, I picked a few of my favorite HEALTHIER comfort foods. You know, because I want to help everyone stick to those New Years resolutions. Which by the way, did any of you make any fun resolutions? Mine are pretty typical and boring. Mostly stuff like be more organized, try new things, yadda, yadda, yadda. Clearly I am not much of a resolution maker.
Anyway, let’s talk about good food. Today I am sharing twenty of my favorite winter recipes. Most are super cozy, but I also threw in a couple extra pretty salads for a pop of color and crunch!
A lot of these are oven to table dishes too, which makes them perfect for easy weeknights or easy weekend entertaining. I’ve been making a lot of the casseroles for dinner this past week. They are the perfect meals for everyone who just got off the mountain and is starving! Yumm!
Ok, so here are my favorite 20 Cozy Winter Recipes:
30-Minute Healthy Kickin’ Cajun Chicken and Rice.
One-Pot 30 Minute Creamy Tomato basil Pasta Bake.
Cheesy Sweet and Sour Pomegranate Thai Chicken Enchiladas.
Winter Salad with Maple Candied Walnuts + Fig Balsamic Dressing.
Pomegranate Sesame Chicken with Ginger Rice Pilaf.
One-Pan Four Cheese Sun-Dried Tomato and Spinach Drunken Pasta Bake.
Harissa, Broccoli, Spinach, Wild Rice Casserole with Crispy Prosciutto.
Buttered Mushroom, Sage Pesto + Goat Cheese Sourdough Toast.
One-Pan 45 Minute Coq au Vin with Brown Butter Sage Mashed Potatoes.
Simple Caramelized Butternut and Kale Florentine Lasagna.
Italian Quinoa Risotto Lasagna withTruffle Oil.
Moroccan Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Soup with Coconut Ginger Cream + Pistachios.
Thai Peanut Chicken and Pumpkin Curry with Sticky Pomegranate Rice.
Butternut Squash + Brussels Sprouts Mac n’ Cheese with Buttery Bacon Ritz Crackers.
30-Minute Stir Fried Korean Beef and Toasted Sesame Noodles
Roasted Garlic Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boats.

Just loved your Korean chicken and corn with rice recipe. I, and everyone else loved it. Thank you so much
Thank you so much Judy! xTieghan
Sooo much easier to read your text now! Love the new look. Only missing the back and forth arrows, can we have those back pretty please? 🙂
Oh good! So happy you live the new text, thanks so much!
And yes, I was thinking the same thing! There are some at the end of the post right before the comments start.
I was just in your neck of the woods a few weekends ago! I took a little trip to Breckenridge 🙂 And yes…cold! And yes, I did try to take an alternative road home to avoid 70…and yes….it ended badly…Ha! BUT, the important thing is now I am home, cozied up by the fire and can make all of these delicious recipes!!
OH NO! Hope everything eventually turned out ok for you!
Thanks Erin and stay warm! 🙂
Your new blog layout is so gorgeous, Tieghan!! What an awesome way to start 2015!
I know I’m not even dealing with cold like you are, but I’m still tired of being freezing (Northern California speaking!). I’m all about cozy meals at the moment and these all look perfect!
Haha! You would probably die where I live. I have to admit, I would love to be in CA right about now! 🙂
Many of these are a favorite around here. Pinning the harissa wild rice and the spinach rigatoni! Cannot wait to make them. 🙂
Thank you so much! Hope you had a great Sunday, Bri! 🙂
Thanks for sharing these amazing comfort food recipes! Absolutely needed over here in ND. It’s so coooooold, brrr.
Thanks so much! Stay warm!
These are my kind of recipes! Everything looks wonderful. A perfect post for the beginning of January.
Thank you so much, Beth!
I’m for sure making 1 & 2–I’m heading to the store now–that really cold weather is headed here. I really love that pasta bake #2.
Thai peanut chicken is good also.
Lasagna boats I would like to try but I have weak hands and opening those squashes is hard for me–even piercing them is hard–ugh.
Saw your picture of the snow covered mountains–just beautiful!
Thank you so much, Nancy! Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!
I have tagged a couple of your recipes.
I must tell you though that I had to rig a cover for over your flashing Novica add.
Did you know that things that flash like this, can cause seizures?
I won’t be able to come back onto your site as long as this ad is flashing.
I’m sorry about this as I really do enjoy you and your recipes.
Have a Joyful Day :~D
Hi Charlie: I have a Kindle and have to turn it sideways because those ads cover the words–when I do that the ads disappear. If your using a tablet maybe this will help.
Sorry about those annoying adds Nancy! I removed them, but please let me know if there are any more. So sorry for the trouble!
I am so sorry about that add, I have removed it. I agree that is was beyond annoying. Please let me know if there are any other issues. Thanks for the kind words!
Total change in dinner tonight…that harissa wild rice salad is happening!
Hope you all loved it! 🙂
Incredible recipe roundup; and I love the updated blog layout!
