WINTER COMFORT FOOD

BEEF STEW + SALTY CORNBREAD RECIPES


As winter slowly comes to an end, I decided that we needed one last bowl of winter comfort before we pack away the recipes for the next season.  If you knew me, you would find that I am a bit of a soup fanatic.  Creamy, brothy, hearty, you name it and I’ve probably made/ate it!  

recipes for winter comfort food

This time I went for an old favorite that my Mom used to make when I was growing up.  It’s a pretty simple recipe that doesn’t take too much attending to and it is a crowd pleaser for the meat and potatoes kind of folks.

  11. 1 TBSP. OLIVE OIL
  12. SALT + PEPPER TO TASTE
Instructions
  1. ADD OLIVE OIL TO A DUTCH OVEN OR SOUP STOCK PAN AND TURN TO MEDIUM HEAT. SEASON MEAT WITH SALT, PEPPER, AND A DUSTING OF GARLIC POWDER (WE WILL ADD MORE LATER). ONCE OIL HAS HEATED, ADD MEAT AND SEAR.
  2. AFTER YOU HAVE SEARED ALL SIDES OF THE MEAT, ADD IN ONIONS AND 3 SPRIGS OF THYME, STEMS REMOVED. COOK ONIONS UNTIL THEY ARE YELLOW AND A LITTLE TRANSPARENT. ADD BROTH AND 1 1/2 CUPS WATER (YOU CAN ADD MORE WATER LATER IF YOU NEED MORE LIQUID). ADD POTATOES, CARROTS, MUSHROOMS, CELERY SEEDS, AND GARLIC POWDER. SEASON WITH SALT AND PEPPER TO YOUR LIKING AND BRING TO A BOIL.
  3. ONCE BOILING, ADJUST HEAT TO A SIMMER AND CONTINUE TO COOK UNTIL POTATOES AND CARROTS ARE SOFT AND THE MEAT IS TENDER WHICH MAY TAKE 30 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE LONGER IT SIMMERS THE BETTER.
  4. START THE CORNBREAD RECIPE BELOW WHILE STEW IS SIMMERING TO SAVE TIME.
  5. TASTE AND ADJUST STEW SEASONINGS AS NEEDED.

  • Road trippin to happiness or maybe just to my parents for a home cooked meal 😉 moral of the story here is to do what makes you happy! ❤️
  • Weekend Mood = SLOW DOWN! ⚠️ After a week of going 100 miles an hour, I think it’s time we slow down.... Have you heard of the art of slow living? February is the perfect time of year to start practicing. 1.| Take 5 minutes to enjoy your coffee or tea in the mornings instead of rushing to get out the door. 2.| Take time to organize your life so you have time to be present and enjoy the things you love. 3.| Take walks and reconnect with nature. This is a really great way to clear your head or find inspiration. 4.| Instead of turning the tv on right when you get home, turn on some music and allow yourself to decompress from the day. 5.| Don’t over-plan your day. That will only create stress and overwhelm. Learn to be flexible, give yourself a few of the most important tasks so that when they are complete you can treat yourself and enjoy the rest of your day doing something that will spark joy. 
Hope you found this helpful friends! Happy Friday! ❤️

  • Currently wishing I could smudge away this cold... if only it worked like that! 
Instead, I’ll be sipping hot tea and popping Vitamin C, but if you’re looking for a good read on “smudging” check out my latest blog post (link in bio) for some enlightenment on the subject.

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!
