When the mercury dips below zero, my enthusiasm for cooking grows. For me, cranking up the oven and baking a batch of cookies or putting a pot of soup on the stove is a way to combat the cold.
Last weekend, for example, on Saturday I made two batches of banana bread and filled the cookie jar with homemade chocolate chip cookies. For supper we had chicken tortilla soup with from-scratch cornbread.
