Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

It’s freezing cold, and let’s face it, you probably just want to eat your fill of meat as the snow (or icy rain) comes down outside your window. This glazed pork tenderloin is the perfect way to get your fill and feel like you’ve eaten something exciting. This recipe involves a tasty balsamic vinegar glaze (choose the finest aged vinegar if you’re really feeling fancy), some sugar, a slow cooker, and the all-important pork.

Slow Cooker Spicy Mac’n’Cheese

Mac and cheese has a lure that draws in kids and children alike. The ultimate and classic alternate to stew, here is a slow-cooked mac’ n’ cheese recipe that everyone will love. There is a spicy twist to this dish too as it is made with fiesta nacho cheese soup. It’s simple, it’s effective, and there’s still a slow cooker involved so you know it is winter.

Get Your Kids Involved

Okay, so this isn’t necessarily one ‘winter dish’, but potentially quite a few. If you’re still failing to find that dish to satisfy your kids, why not bring them into the kitchen. Get them to make a dessert like this Nutella Christmas tree to get them engaged with cooking, and make the winter cooking period a fun one for the whole family.

 

Your winter doesn’t have to be a stew-fest, there are hundreds of ways to make dinnertime more exciting and cheer everyone up over winter. Much like the salads of summer, a stew is fantastic, but you can only go so far before you need to make a change. Here’s to a varied and happy winter food-fest for everyone.
