Snuggle up on the couch, cover the feet with your favorite pair of socks and hold the bowl of soup as it warms you up. Nothing is more comforting than a creamy soup on a winter night.

Some days make us reach for something cool and refreshing and the very next day, we prefer to spend the whole day in bed with a book and hot coffee or soup.
