This soup is a bang-for-your-buck dish that you can make with whatever vegetables you happen to have in the fridge. Use whatever dried or canned beans you have in the cupboard, swap in canned tomatoes for fresh, or leave out the rosemary. It's hearty, infinitely flexible, and perfect for cold weather.
Spiked with hard cider and sweetened with caramelized shallots, these savory pork chops come together in about half an hour. A quick sear and gentle braise help you avoid the classic problem of overcooked chops.
Use that extra time on your hands to your advantage with this slow-roasted pork belly. Hours in the oven yield a fall-apart tender pork that's enriched by sesame oil and a jolt of Sriracha. Bonus: A warm oven slow-roasting pork becomes a space heater that smells really, really good.
A snow emergency calls for extreme measures, and this sticky toffee pudding drizzled with dark toffee sauce and flavored with espresso allows you to treat yourself right. It also happens to be one of the staff's all-time favorite recipes.
