Many people are feeling the post-holiday slump, which can lead to depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Fortunately, spending time in your kitchen can actually help and now therapists are embracing what home cooks have known for a while: cooking helps.
Did I mention I enjoy soup and other great comfort food in January? The holidays are in our rear view mirrors and Old Man Winter has us in his clutches. Fight back with lots of wonderful soups, including a creamy parsnip bisque with super crunchy kettle chip croutons!
Continuing my quest to keep warm and fill your kitchen with great soup recipes, we come to a great classic: French Onion Soup. But this one has an effort-saving secret to make this a great mid-week meal option: your trusty slow cooker!
For me, January is all about soups, chowders, and stews. There is no better way for me to ward off chills on a cold winter evening than a bowl of steaming soup, a good pair of warm socks, and a good book to curl up with.
When the holidays have gone and we're left with the cold embrace of winter, it's time to fight back with our best. It's time to turn to chicken soup and give it a spicy warmth that comes from Thailand.
