Hearty Foods To Keep Your Insides Warm

Whether you’re in the northern or southern hemisphere, there’s room for a hearty meal right about now. If you’re in the north, then it’s time for one last hurrah of warm foods that keep the chill away before we enter the season of light nibbles and BBQ meats. In Australia, they’re just about to head into the cooler time of the year. Of course, that isn’t quite as dramatic as the cold weather found elsewhere in the world, but hey - any excuse to cozy up with good food!

Chili For Days

Chili is just about the best thing to make when the weather is a bit grey and cold outside. For starters, this dish will keep you warm, there’s no doubt about it - and especially so if you’re brave enough to bring the heat to the chili. They’re also highly versatile, so you can make it any way you like. Vegetarian or with meat, you’ll end up with a big dish full of flavor that will feed you for days (if it lasts that long!) For the most tasty chili possible, keep it cooking in a slow cooker and let all the flavors reveal themselves. 

Dutch Oven Goodness

If you haven’t yet got a dutch oven, take a look at and add one to your kitchen, because these things are the best winter appliance you’ll ever own. For one thing, these things allow you to cook everything from fresh bread to homemade sauces and even applesauce! Essentially, they’re the winter version of the BBQ, allowing you to spend all day getting that one meal just right. The one thing we really recommended using your dutch oven to make is bread: It’s easy to make and tastes divine. And it’ll also go pretty well with the soup you’ll be making. Talking of which….

Soup for the Soul

You’ve got a cough, there’s damp in the air and your bones are feeling a little chilly. What’s the best, most warming, and flavorsome way to get warm quickly? Why, it’s the good old favorite - soup, of course. Take a look at and you’ll soon be on your way to making your very own soup. Sure, you can get soup from a can, but where’s the fun in that? Learn to make your own and you’ll have a skill that’ll give and give again, because ultimately there’s no end to the types of soup you can make. 

And the Extras

We spend a large part of the cold months snuggled up inside, so to really invoke the cozy Danish concept of hygge, you need to have all types of good snack recipes on hand to make the indoor time all the more enjoyable. If you haven’t quite found the chocolate cookie recipe that’s the one, the one you’ll hand down to your children, read and get started as you work through recipe after recipe. It’s a hard life, isn’t it?
