Some of my coziest winter memories involve sipping hot apple cider in a church basement as the snow piled up outside, hanging out with members of my youth group. It seemed like any social church gathering in the winter aims to warm you from the inside, whether it’s the hot food and drinks or the community spirit that’s doing the warming.
It’s the time of year for indoor church potlucks and spaghetti dinners that bring the community together. After all, the holidays are upon us, and there’s no better time to spend with friends and family in your favorite sacred place.
Southern recipes are great in winter because they’re already pretty darn comforting (and certainly filling!).
