It’s a chilly, rainy Sunday in New York City, and that makes me want to curl up on the couch with a fluffy blanket, watch football, and – the best part – enjoy the enticing aromas emanating from the kitchen, where a pot of something delicious simmers on the stove. And after October’s Wine Pairing Weekend (#WinePW) Twitter chat, I’ve got lots of ideas about what to throw in that pot: baked ziti with sausage; mushroom parmigiano pasta; old school Bolognese sauce; chipotle chicken stew. Our fearless group of food and wine writers came up with some real winners this month. So what are you waiting for? Get moving and click on any of the posts featured below. Your comfort-food Sunday awaits!
