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.

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.

  • Girl put your records on and play your favorite song 🎶 Just picked up a new record the other day! Have you heard of Cotton Jones? They sound so dreamy with a vintage kind of vibe that I can’t help but sway to! Swipe through to have a listen and let me know what you think! 💫
  • A Halloween colored golden hour and this house was dressed perfectly for the occasion... It’s still heating up here in the south and by the end of these photos my overalls were sticking to my legs so bad that I had to hike them up to get back into the car 😅 Hey fall over here!🙋‍♀️🍂 Anyone else dealing with all this heat still?
  • Happy first of October!!! 🎃 I’ve gone batty decorating the porch... 🦇 I added a few pops of green for a “gourd-gous” scene as my witchy side reminds me, tis near Halloween! Looking forward to starting October off right with all the spooky magic this month brings! Clearly Halloween is one of my fave holidays and I’ve been so ready for it! Have you started decorating yet? I’d love to know what you’re doing for porch decor this year! Also, what do you think of my DIY painted doormat?
  • Every year for as long as I can remember, my family has celebrated the fall season by bringing home a bag of @brachscandy Autumn Mix. #sponsored This year, I thought it might be nice to share the tradition with friends by making them a spooky sweet treat because it's not Halloween without Brach's candy corn. That said, I stopped by @target on my way home to pick some up (plus a bag of Pumpkins for me) and whipped up this super simple Dark Chocolate Candy Corn Bark (recipe below). To add some extra holiday spirit, I placed them in cute goodie bags with a little tag that says "This is for you, Boo!" Can't wait to hand these out and keep the tradition going! Happy Haunting, friends! (1) 12oz. Bag of Dark Chocolate Chunks (melted)
(1) 10-15 of Brach's Candy Corn
Sprinkles of Your Choice
(1) Cookie Sheet Covered with Parchment Paper

After the chocolate has been melted, carefully spread the warm chocolate out on the pan and smooth over into one layer.  Add candy corn/sprinkles and allow to cool in the fridge.  Once cooled, break the chocolate apart into large chunks/shards and disperse as you please.

  • Most of the time my days off consist of me running errands, cleaning and working on stuff for the blog, not to mention, all the other things that come up in life. 
Today, I managed to wake up early and check out the local farmer’s market (they had 🎃 check out my stories if you wanna sneak a peek), catch up with some good friends that I haven’t seen in awhile, and even squeezed in a little DIY project that I’ve been wanting to try for quite some time (also in stories)... This was a rare day indeed, but a really good one and it pains me that I have to remind myself to do more things that bring me joy as it seems like I’m always busy these days. That being said,  I just thought I’d check in with you because I know first hand how easy it is to run yourself ragged. So here it goes, what have you done to feed your soul/bring you joy lately? ✨

  • When it’s 92 degrees out, but you still wanna get your fall on! 🍂✨
•
Lately I’ve been cranking up the AC to pretend it’s cool out, lighting pumpkin candles, flipping through autumnal books/magazines, and watching Harry Potter because I’m determined to get in the mood for fall one way or another! 🤣 What are you guys doing to get your fall on? .
