Winter will still be with us for a while, so these ten jazzylicious recipes are sure to warm your tummy, please your family, and save you time in the kitchen! Making a meal in one big pot, makes preparing supper easier, particularly when it comes to clean up. (I definitely do not adore cleaning up the kitchen every night - quite the contrary - so the less cookware to wash, the better, I say!)

Serve any of these dandy recipes alone, or for a more complex offering, serve with a simple green salad and crusty bread, or your favorite cooked whole grain on the side.

However you serve ‘em… you’re gonna love ‘em!
