In the winter months following a busy holiday season, cooking at home can feel repetitive at best. Produce isn't all that colorful and the shorter days can leave many of us feeling rushed to get dinner on the table before it gets too late. So how to break out of the seasonal cooking rut? We find that taking common recipes or classic favorites and giving them a boost — whether that's with an interesting ingredient, addition or method — is just the thing to motivate and inspire. After all, why make a plain hamburger when you can cook up a zippy, tangy harissa burger instead? Or how about adding caramelized onions and kale to your next grilled cheese sandwich? So cheers to a new year of shaking things up in the kitchen, one meal at a time.
