Welcome to the Weekend Cook and Tell. Every Wednesday we make our way through the food sections of various national newspapers to create a weekend cooking project. We hope you will cook along with us and share your experiences, recipes, and photos here.
For many folks, the middle of February is when the charms of winter start to wear thin. The days are short, the weather is cold and spring seems to be nowhere in sight. This last stretch of winter is the time of year when many of us need a little extra comfort in our lives, especially in the kitchen.
M.E. Malone of The Boston Globe has undoubtedly been beaten down by the chilly weather and in dire need of some serious comfort food. In The Warmth of Comfort Food Malone rounds up favorite comfort foods from a diverse group of Bostonians. Favorites range from cottage pie to borscht, and even tuna casserole.
For this week's challenge we want to hear about what kinds of comfort foods are helping you weather the winter. Are you baking your blues away? Or perhaps braising to keep warm? Tell us all about your cold weather coping and cooking.
Show us your photos on Photograzing (make sure to include "Cook and Tell" in your submission title) and tell us about your recipes here! If you'd like to blog the experience, please leave a link in the comments below. We'll post a round-up of your photos and recipes next Wednesday with all of your most comforting dishes.
