This brief burst of winter weather is reason enough to skip the salads and soups and opt for big food- you know, the braised meats like short ribs, osso buco and the like. The rich, hearty flavors, velvety thick sauces and fork tender meat make for a satisfying meal.
I absolutely love this time of year – everyone’s spirits soar. It’s a great time to regroup with friends whether it’s a formal holiday event or just entertaining at home. I have a few go to recipes on my website Goodtaste.tv that I rely on when I’m entertaining during the holidays – dishes that are tried and true winners with guests.
