Recipe Courtesy of Marcy Smothers, from her book Snacks
One of my ultimate comfort foods on a winter night is grilled cheese dipped in tomato soup. The buttery richness of the sandwich and the creamy soup – yum! Here I have a two for one special: Tomato soup and grilled cheese in the same sandwich. Mmmm mmmm good!

Coq au Vin
Recipe Courtesy of Chef Eric Frischkorn
Coq au Vin is a classic French peasant dish traditionally prepared with rooster. In this version, we use chicken legs which are not only easier to find but also require a fraction of the cooking time. The earthiness of the stew pairs perfectly with the Kendall-Jackson 2006 Grand Reserve Pinot Noir. This is a great dish for a cold winter’s night and while the preparation might seem a little daunting at first, the end result is well worth the effort!
