Winter cooking can be challenging, but take it as an opportunity to get creative and experiment with new ingredients and recipes. Use the “In Season” section of this site for inspiration. Local meat and poultry are always available, as are artisan cheeses. It’s also a good time to stock up on locally produced pantry goods like dried beans, pasta, and rice or preserved items like pickles and jams. During this final month of winter, think root vegetables, such as carrots, parsnips, and potatoes—they can be very versatile.

What are you cooking in February?

One of my favorite meals of February (and a winter “go to” meal) was roasted vegetables over red quinoa.  I tossed halved brussel sprouts, red onion, and sweet potatoes in extra virgin olive oil, a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar, and a curried spice mixture and then roasted them in the oven.  Served over nutty quinoa, it was delicious. smile
