Cozy recipes to warm up with

With late winter in full swing, it's time to warm up with rich and cozy meals at home. To help you stay toasty, we've gathered 5 fabulous cozy recipes to warm up with.


Skillet Scalloped Potatoes 


There's almost nothing cozier than scalloped potatoes, and this recipe is about as indulgent as they get. They are loaded with butter, milk and a ton of oozing and rich Gruyere cheese. You'll want to make lots so your family can have seconds and leftovers. 


Real Meatballs and Spaghetti 


If Italian fare is your comfort food, you'll love these Real Meatballs and Spaghetti from Ina Garten. The meatballs are made from scratch with three types of meat for perfect texture and flavour. The sauce is also from scratch but comes together very easily. This is perfect Sunday night dinner food!


Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese 


If you're looking for a healthy but indulgent-tasting winter meal, this vegetarian dish is pure comfort with a dash of vegetables. It's like a good mac and cheese recipe with a secret -- butternut squash! You won't know it's there but your body will thank you.




If you want something hot, filling and fairly healthy, you've got to try this Bibimbap recipe. It's a delightful hot stone bowl brimming with a mix of rice, vegetables, beef or chicken, a fried egg and red chilli pepper paste (Gochujang). You're going to love it.


Wild Mushroom Soup


In winter, soup just hits the spot -- especially creamy and rich soups. We love this Wild Mushroom Soup recipe from Ricardo. It is not vegetarian but could be made to be by swapping vegetable broth for the chicken broth that the recipe calls for. If you want to make it vegan, use vegan butter and vegan stock.


We hope you give these delicious cozy recipes a try at home!
