Nerdie Foodie: Winter is Coming

Curious Crowd! Who is ready for Winter? Anyone…anyone? Whether we like it or not, November has arrived which means I get to play Christmas music with out much judgement now that Halloween has come and gone. But more importantly, it means time to bring out all the yummy warm comfort food. And who better to turn to than the one and only Game of Thrones, because Winter is coming. Sorry I had to! Haha! Ready or not, here we go!

Lord Manderly’s Pie

Who doesn’t love a yummy piping hot slice of savoury pie during a Winter chill? This meat and veggie pie will satisfy your bellies! Thanks to Chelsea (from The Inn at the Crossroads), you can check out her recipe to create this lovely and hearty pie here!

Thick Seafood Stew

This stew will stick to your ribs with mussels, crabs and three kinds of fish! This is more of a New England style seafood chowder style stew. Thanks to The Inn at the Crossroads again for another fantastic recipe. You can find this soul warming recipe here!

Herb-Crusted Rack of Lamb and Mashed Turnips

What about this for your entrée or main course? The rack of lamb will definitely fill one’s apetite and with a side of mashed turnips swimming in a pool of melted butter. Yum! I think Julia Child would approve thanks to the use of butter! Impress your guests and check out this Feast of Starlight recipe here!

Desserts

Direwolf Claws

After a heavy meal, a light dessert can help you top it all off. Tracy (from Baking Mischief) shares with us this puff pastry dessert recipe for Direwolf claws. The real question is: plain, chocolate, or cinnamon? Check out the recipe for all three versions here!

Sansa’s Lemon Cakes

Of course, I can’t forget to include these mini cakes, they are a thing of beauty! Rebecca (from Sugar & Soul Co) created this delightful recipe basing the cakes off of Magic Cakes. Have you heard of Magic Cakes? I sure haven’t, but boy am I happy to be introduced to this beautiful baking sorcery and I would love to test this recipe out! Check out the recipe here!
