Foods for the season. What do you like?


It is no revelation that our brains and taste buds yearn for a certain kind of taste depending on the season or the weather outside.  In winter months, I for one like hot soups and rich, filling tastes.  It could be fried and fatty, sweet and sensational, or rich and creamy.  The only requisite is, it has to be satisfying.

I am a proponent of healthy foods but here I am contradicting myself.  However, what I have above is not for every meal or every day, but for an off and on change in my diet without the guilt attached.

What is the food/foods that you crave for?  It can be for any season.  Let me know and we can carry on a discussion.  If you'd like to share a recipe, please do so.  It will be posted under your name.
