Easy Decadent Truffles
Great recipe. Based on other cooks' recommendations, I reduced sugar to 2 cups, and for chocolate used 2 cups of chips + 2 oz. of dark chocolate. Refrigerated mixture overnight. Made two batches, each yielding about 4 dozen gumball-sized truffles (any smaller seemed skimpy): one batch had vanilla, the other real peppermint extract. For "regular" batch, rolled them in powdered sugar, cocoa, or shredded sweetened coconut. For mint batch, rolled in festive peppermint sugar or drizzled with melted white chocolate. Five versions in all...perfect in mini cupcake papers nestled in holiday tins for a lovely homemade gift!

Mediterranean Pasta with Greens
These ingredients are great, but the end result was a bit dry. Next time, in lieu of sundried tomatoes, I might instead halve Roma tomatoes, roast them with olive oil and some spices like oregano and crushed red pepper, and then add these to the pasta, with half the tomatoes mashed up with their juices, to add some light sauciness to this.

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili
Used Great Northern beans instead of hominy, and also chopped up a bunch of bell peppers that needed to be used up and included those. Delicious seasonal meal!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
