The cold season calls for delicious warm meals! Wouldn’t it be nice to once again have that warm bowl of soup that your Mom makes every winter time or have a taste of that chicken or beef stew that your Grandmother used to make for you?
For those who have grown up and are already living on their own, the winter time brings a lot of old memories. Most would recall how wonderful their house smelled during this time because of Nana or Mum’s cooking. You probably have tried copying old recipes for stews and soups passed down by your great grandparents to your grandparents to your parents then to you. You may have even made some modern twists or additions to these good old recipes. However, most of you would probably agree that nothing beats mom’s or Nana’s cooking.
If you are trying to recreate that heartwarming stew that your Nana or your mom used to cook for you, add a few drops of Argan oil after you have cooked the stew to bring out a nutty and flavourful taste.
The cold season also is a time for warm drinks. You can share a warm drink with your friends, family, a loved one or even have a cup on your own and the world seems to be more at peace. A cup of warm drink brings a cozy warm feeling in you during the cold season.
