Tromps through the bracing cold make us reach for hearty, rib-sticking comfort foods, although the subsequent lethargy is no match for holiday chaos. With that in mind, here's a winter dinner that will warm you from the inside out but won't weigh you down.
A few upcoming food events in Chicago.

Can a company like Amy's Kitchen—known for its organic, preservative-free products—compete in the candy bar market? We put them to the test.
We've experimented with a whole range of hot boozy drinks, spiking our cocoa with everything from mezcal to pisco and stirring pretty much the whole liquor cabinet into steaming mugs of cider, coffee, tea, and toddies. Here are 20 of the best hot drink recipes we've discovered.
Food-friendly events for the weekend and beyond.
Essential doesn't have to mean expensive! This is my list of kitchen gear that you can buy for under $50 and will use not just occasionally, but all the time. You won't find any odd unitaskers here or overly specialized gadgetry, just solid tools for real cooks who cook a variety of foods every day. What's more, all of these tools should last you years and years down the line.
Tenderloin is infamous for its ultra-tender texture, extreme leanness, and very mild flavor. While the more robust flavor of bison adds a bit to the flavor department, even a bison tenderloin can benefit from a good spice rub to amp it up. The mildly smoky, raisin-like intensity of ancho chili powder will do nicely.
For some real feel-good points, make a Christmas miracle happen by actually bringing someone you love some figgy pudding. Impromptu song and dance routines are possible, but general delight guaranteed.
This cinnamon bun thinks it's a croissant.
We've got the results from our last poll (which had a whopping 1,994 votes), and a new question this week, all after the jump!
Because someone had to do it, we tried all four Munchie Meals at Jack in the Box, including the Brunch Burger, Exploding Cheesy Chicken, Loaded Nuggets, and Stacked Grilled Cheese Burger.
Alder bar director Kevin Denton's dinnertime drink menu includes what I contend is a mighty nifty feature: the option to order several of the cocktails as "shorts." You get less than a full drink and pay half of the full price. For instance, you can have yourself a Bloody Mary tasting by ordering a trio of shorts. Our favorite: the Yellow Light, a bright, savory-sweet combination of pineapple, yellow pepper, and jalapeño tequila.
This collapsible silicone strainer/steamer basket may not be an earthshaking kitchen tool, but it's useful and practical, especially for people who don't have a lot of storage space.
When my college friends and I were brainstorming cities for a meet-up weekend, New Orleans was at the top of everyone's list—for the warm weather and the music, of course, but mostly for the food. Here's the best of what we ate.
Roy Choi's recipe for brussels sprouts and kimchi in his new cookbook/memoir, L.A. Son, is a prime example of his effortless expertise in Korean fusion. He throws sprouts, butter, kimchi, lemon, and shiso all together in a hot pan for a dish that looks like a miss-mashed stir-fry but tastes like a dish that's been made by countless cooks for generations.
It's doubtful that there's a candy connoisseur among us who hasn't enjoyed the sticky-fingered bliss of a minty-fresh candy cane. Ever wonder how they got their shape, or their stripes? Read on for the full history of this holiday treat.
We try the new Starbucks Gingerbread Latte, new Sprite Cranberry, Blue Moon Gingerbread Spiced Ale, and a whole slew of eggnogs.
South Asian food in New York City is finally moving beyond tikka masala territory, and this week-long series will help you make the most of these heady times. Not sure of the difference between dosa and roti or how to distinguish good chaat from the rest? We've got you covered. Up today: Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Sri Lanka in south Asia's deep south.
This gorgeously smooth, ice crystal-free, easy-to-scoop-straight-from-the-freezer ice cream is some of the best we've ever had, and now it can be yours!
