Whoever coined the phrase, “Lovin’ from the oven” was on to something. We have four cold weather classics baked hot in our oven to keep you warm on these chilly nights. Chef Cathal Armstrong of Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, Virginia prepares a Shepherd’s Pie that is filled with fork-tender braised lamb shoulder and topped with buttery mashed potatoes, while our own recipe, Lucy’s Pot Pie, has a traditional chicken and vegetable filling with cheddar cheese-laced buttermilk biscuits baked right on top. Baked Mac and Cheese from Chef Ted Lahey, formerly of Table & Main in Roswell, Georgia, features pasta smothered in two types of cheese bound together with a creamy béchamel sauce. Baked Pimento Cheese and Crawfish Grits from Chef Steve McHugh of Cured in San Antonio, Texas combines three Southern staples: grits, pimento cheese and crawfish. Each of these dishes will have you dreaming of warm Southern days, even on a cold January evening.
