Cozy Up with Comfort Dishes



Just In..

During the cold winter season, there may be days where all you want to do is stay inside, snuggle up and eat delicious meals to bring you some warmth. Food sure can be comforting. 

What’s your go-to comfort food? 

For some, it’s pizza. For others, it may be a fresh loaf of bread. Or it could be a hearty bowl of chili. With all these dishes, you can amp up the flavor with the ingredients you use, especially extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. 

This week, we’re sharing some of our favorite comfort food recipes to help you warm up and relax this season. Find a recipe you like? Be sure to let us know in the comments! 

Let’s get together and cook!
