This freezing weather has got us dreaming of hot pots, curries and other warming winter dishes...
I mean, it's pretty unfair that we don't get to hibernate (although we're getting close to cracking it), so we'll just have to settle for consuming all of the carbs to stay warm until warmer weather returns next spring.
So, here are nine great recipes to add to your repertoire for these dark winter months!
