Heartwarming winter recipes.

Hello , dear friends, I came across these two happy recipes this morning, and I would like to share them with you.
They both look heartwarming, perfect for winter evenings.

Tell, tell , if you ever made them.

Southern Pulled-Pork Sandwiches

Pork shoulder, a well-marbled cut available at most supermarkets, turns fork-tender after long, slow cooking. Ours is especially succulent with a spice rub and vinegar.

Smoky Corn Chowder


Smoky Corn Chowder

Serves 6
Hands-On Time: 20m
Total Time: 40m
Ingredients
  • 8  ounces  sliced bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1  large sweet onion, chopped
  • 2  cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2  teaspoon  smoked paprika
  • 1/4  teaspoon  crushed red pepper
  • 2  10-ounce packages frozen corn
  • 3  cups  low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1  cup  half-and-half
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 4  scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1  baguete, sliced and toasted (optional)
Directions
1. Cook the bacon in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
2. Spoon off and discard all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Return the pan to medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 7 minutes.
3. Add the garlic, paprika, and red pepper and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
4. Stir in the corn, broth, and half-and-half and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
5. Transfer half the soup to a blender and puree until smooth. Return to the pot and stir in ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
6. Divide the soup among bowls and top with the scallions and bacon. Serve with bread, if desired.
Tip
The soup can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
