Winter Warmers

I look forward to cold weather for many reasons. I love winter clothes: pulling out my stockings, knits, scarves and layers is like reconnecting with old friends. I like the way that winter gives us permission to hibernate. Short days and icy weather make snuggling at home seem absolutely sensible. And, above all, I love winter food: succulent, warming, sticky and nourishing. As well as simple, slow-cooked comfort food, I also try to up my intake of leafy greens. Smoothies make that so easy.
