It’s getting cold. Let’s just proceed to put on our onesies, fuzzy socks and a blanket and plop ourselves on the couch with some Netflix. No judgment. We all do it. But with the cold weather, we get hungry. Maybe it’s because there’s nothing else to do and none of us want to go outside. Either way, here are some recipes to make this winter worthwhile:

1. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Roll

Libby’s Pumpkin Roll from Very Best Baking:

I made this for Thanksgiving for the past couple years. It’s delicious! It’s perfect for the Holidays or just a special treat. But we all know pumpkin is in right now, so break out your mixing bowls!


Cake:                                                                                      Filling:

¼ cup powdered sugar (to sprinkle on towel)                  1 pkg (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temp

¾ cup all-purpose flour                                                       1 cup powdered sugar, sifted

½ teaspoon baking powder                                                 6 tbsp butter or margarine, softened

½ teaspoon baking soda                                                      1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon                                            powdered sugar (optional for decoration)

½ teaspoon ground cloves

¼ teaspoon salt

3 large eggs

2/3 cup pure pumpkin


2. Broccoli Cheddar Soup

If you don’t know what this is, or if you haven’t tried it yet, your taste buds haven’t fulfilled their full potential. Panera is a great place to go in the winter. Not only is the soup warm, but also the restaurant is nice and cozy with electric fireplaces placed by the tables. This is your next destination.


3. Oatmeal with fruit

Like an acai bowl, but without the smoothie-like base, you can use oatmeal! Oatmeal is so underrated. It’ll warm you up and give you the proper nutrients and energy to fuel your day. And it’s pretty! #newinstapost

Ingredients: can include, but is not limited to: bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries walnuts, chia seeds, cinnamon  



Fudge is DELICIOUS! I help my mom make it for the Holidays. It’s perfect for special occasions, a treat for after finals, or even a Yankee Swap (a party where you exchange small gifts with friends).

Ingredients: You can find the ingredients on the back of Fluff jars!

5 cups sugar

1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk

¼ butter or ¼ lb margarine

1 (12 ounce) jar marshmallow cream

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 24 ounce package chocolate chips


5. Turkey and Stuffing with Mash Potatoes and Gravy

You might eat this on Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have it any other night! You can even have a “friendsgiving” before you go home for break, or simply make it for a relaxed dinner one night. You can buy cut turkey, potatoes, gravy, and stuffing mix at your local grocery store.

Don’t forget to stay warm and drink hot chocolate with mini marshmallows, too! Winter may be dreadful, but the food isn’t!
