There’s really no comfort food like soup. If you or your kids are sick, you’re short on time, or just want something warm to eat, you’ve come to the right place. Try these easy soup recipes, or something a little different like this Lasagna Soup.
Grilled cheese is a great complimentary food to any soup. Put a twist of the classic by doing an open faced sandwich with deli meat, adding a tomato, or trying this yummy Jalepeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
If you need something to eat while you’re on the run, and want to avoid the drive-through at all costs, try making mini versions of your winter classics. Mini Chicken Pot Pie Bites are a great example of a hearty, home-cooked meal made into a tasty treat for the road.

It’s hot chocolate season, and these homemade pink marshmallows will make for a fun activity—and a twist on the classic drink. Use any food coloring you want, and teach your kids about color harmonies.
