There are days I want to be curled under my blanket dreaming those golden dreams. I take advantage of the little light there is to be as productive as possible. Hiding from the fall-to-winter months are impossible and thus I spend these few months of, what feels like, hibernation watching nature transform fall into winter and then welcome spring. So why not embrace it?

In the kitchen, I equate comfort to hearty dishes with just a bit of spice coupled with cups and cups of tea infused with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom. This recipe allows that perfect blend and encourages one to slow down and welcome the different seasons.
