We're a big fan of prolific food writer/cookbook author Annie Bell's beautifully photographed, meticulously tested recipes. Have you seen her Brooklyn Blackout Cake, for instance? Her latest collection, Low Carb Revolution, is one of those books that makes an otherwise less-than-appealing diet sound as good as hearty shepherd's pie on a cold winter evening. We thought you'd be on board.

The French poet Victor Hugo once wrote, “life is a flower for which love is the honey.” Well, it seems the French have found a way for you to practically drink those words in liqueur form, via the exquisite génépi, distilled from Alpine mountain flowers. Sound like a good addition to your Old Fashioned? We thought so, too.

The Best Of Cold Weather Eats For Lunch

Maybe if we just play along, it will get warmer
Mar 6, 2014 11:30 am

I've tried everything. "Tampering" with my 1,000-year-old radiator in an attempt to find the balance between knocking, hissing and spouting the world's hottest air, buying a stylish humidifier on Gilt and naming it Smellvin because it helps me smell when it's too dry to smell, staying up late to make Swedish meatballs, everything. Or maybe those are just New York winter problems; I don't get out of town a lot. Regardless, March can take its lions and lambs and start whatever kind of effed-up zoo it wants. I'm going to load up on comfort food and hole up until the trees bust open.

Some things need no improvement: a hot bowl of slow-simmered chicken soup on a cold night. But we went ahead and found 8 spins on the classic...plus one recipe for good old chicken noodle soup if that's what will do the trick. If that soup cures what ails you, imagine what will happen when you go all Malaysian on it and brew up a steaming pot of chicken laksa.
