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!  

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.
