on Weeknight Dinners: Slow-Cooked Minestrone

Here in Minnesota, we've gotten snow every single day this week, which totally thrills me! I love snow. Love it. Doesn't matter what time of day it snows, it gives me Christmas morning feeling. Is there anything better than cozying up by the fireplace, hunkering down...
