At the top of my list has to be Split pea soup, and followed by chili. A glass of wine goes great with both. Of course any type of soups or stew work great when old man winter pops his head in. And a nice cup of coffee or a brandy helps to warm a body up.

Those are my two favorites as well. A nice glass of red wine with the soup, a glass of chenin blanc with my black bean/turkey chili.

I also like making navy bean soup, lentil soup, 15-bean soup, vegetable soup, beef stew.

I have been on a soup and stew bender this past week. Can't get enough of it - beef stew, cream of butternut quash, corn chowder, red curry soup with shrimp, even cheapie ramen will do it for me in a pinch.

I recently made a chili with extra lean grass fed beef, tweaked my usual recipe by adding both Hungarian sweet paprika and smoked Spanish paprika in addition to the usual chili powder and celery flakes and the result was so tasty we ended up finishing the whole batch in one sitting. I sprinkled crumbles of blue cheese on top (don't know what came over me) and must say the result was fantastic.

Hot buttered rum.

Oh, food ... Ummm ... Chili, and anything that has to go into the oven for more than 30 minutes.

Here's the problem I have with 15-bean soup: all the beans have different cooking times and procedures.

First of all, you have to boil the kidney beans, cannellini beans, and lima beans to remove their toxicity (Phytohaemagglutinin). The boiling turns other beans, like navy beans, to mush. And the split peas and lentils, forget it - they will have dissolved long before the rest of the beans have cooked, which is okay because they act as a thickener.

Having said that, I think it tastes great even if half the beans are overcooked.
