The end of the yearÂ holidaysÂ are over, but here in the Northeast and in many parts of the country,Â winter is kicking into high gear. Â Many of us are trying to start off the new year on the right foot, byÂ eating healthy and leaving all those sweet deliciousÂ treats behind. Â The challenge is real, no doubt.Â Comfort foods are just that - comfort forÂ when the cold winds blow and whistle past your windows, reminding you of that steamingÂ cup of hot cocoa with pillowy marshmallows, waiting to be sipped and savored as you seek release from theÂ icy grip of old man winter.
We love October at Olive Lucy. Â It marks the begining of the Fall and holiday season. Â With the change in weather and the turning of the leaves from freshÂ green to the bright and warm colors of burnt red, orange and yellow, we look forward to the crisp autumn air and all the seasonal cooking that is about to begin.
