For a while there, with snow storm after snowstorm, it seemed like winter might not ever end. But with daffodils in full bloom, last weekend’s time change and the rising of temperatures outdoors, it’s just about time to bid farewell to winter menus as chefs all over town prepare for new menu arrivals in April. But if you missed a good soup, stew or hearty braised meat, there’s still time to make the mad dash for some culinary decadence.

Kale Soup

About 30-minutes outside of Atlanta, or 20-minutes south of Hartsfield-Atlanta airport is the sustainable community of Serene, in Palmetto, Georgia. The “Be-serene,” community is also be the home of the Blue Eyed Daisy — the bakeshop that in 2012 became the winner of The Food Network series, Cupcake Wars.

With a rotating menu of more than 50 flavors of cupcakes, including signature specials — Spiced Maple Bacon and Dulce de Leche, the breakfast, lunch and snack eatery features a daily menu of soups. Of them, the Kale Soup is an absolute sell out every Friday. A savory vegetable broth, with a touch of heavy cream provides the base for organic kale and pork sausage creating a soup that is simply insatiable.

One of a Kind White Bean

Two blocks from Atlanta’s central shopping district of Buckhead, home to Lenox Mall (Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Macy’s) and Phipps Plaza (Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom), is F&B Atlanta — home of the renowned White Bean Soup.

Pureed with a touch of heavy cream to add further depth, and enhanced by white truffle oil as well as the decadence of crispy bacon and golden croutons, it is a lusciously satisfying soup that will forever change your thoughts of what it means to be a bean soup.

Other signature soups include a rich Thai Lobster Soup with coconut milk, lemongrass and ginger, and a Roasted Butternut Squash Soup creamed with toasted almonds.

Braised to Perfection

And for those Thursdays when something a bit more hearty comes to mind, Murphy’s — one of Atlanta’s premiere weekend brunch spots in the heart of Atlanta’s pedestrian friendly community of Virginia-Highlands, is THE spot for Apple Braised Pork Shank. Served for dinner only on Thursday’s menu, the slow roasted shank is served with hearty root vegetables in a puddle of au jus that might just challenge your grandma’!

Finally, if you’re lucky enough on Sunday, you might luck up into a Beef Short Rib on the Supper Menu at Serpas. Chef/owner Scott Serpas, the creator of the renowned Salmon Chips—a fun item of smoked salmon served on thick cut potato chip and one of the best Tuna Tartar’s in town (done with a kicking chili sesame dressing and green apple accompaniment, served also with thick potato chips), creates a three course meal every Sunday for around $24. Main entrees might include a tender braised, boneless short rib, with a choice of a Seafood Stew or Boneless Quail. Such family style sides accompanying each main entrée might include collard greens, whipped potatoes and roasted vegetables in a bustling open environment conducive to neighborly socializing.

While there, explore the tastes of the south with Eggplant Hushpuppies for a unique experience. The savory crispy fried treats with a side of bleu cheese will become totally addictive before you know it. And the cocktail list is pretty inventive as well.

Easy Cocktail Recipes: 20 Festive Drinks To Enjoy All Winter

When the weather outside is frightful, I like to drink something delightful. Some days call for a warm cocktail that will keep me cozy all night. On nights I’m feeling homesick, I may want a rum-based concoction that reminds me of my tropical upbringing in the Philippines.

This being the (objectively awful) year that it is, I needed all the help and inspiration I could get. Here, fifteen spirits professionals shared their winter drinking strategies—and of course, favorite cocktail recipes. And there’s something for every palate—from a Cognac-based old fashioned to ginger highball and beyond.

This is a staff favorite recipe. It's the savory chicken soup you crave, but worlds away from the stuff you grew up reheating (aka, the canned stuff). Fish sauce, tons of lime juice, those crunchy peanuts on top, a little bit of spice (if you want!)—make this once and you'll be making it all winter.

Nostalgia. You need it like you need to run outside and build a snowman the second this storm is over. These adult SpaghettiOs will bring you back, way back, so turn on the cartoons and get cooking.

Comfort Food for a Kidney-Friendly Diet: One-Pot Chicken and Dumplings

In Texas, winter comes in week-long spurts followed by spring with dashes of summer. This patterns goes on from November through end of February. For the cold weeks, I love being wrapped in the savory scent of hot stew, accompanied by bread or biscuits. Chicken and dumplings is my personal favorite. A fellow dietitian sent this recipe to me as one of her winter staples that she recommends to her patients and feeds to her family. I whipped up a batch with a few modifications and can’t wait to share! Soup, for the renal diet, is always a challenge as it is traditionally a salty item. And, quite honestly, the salty-savory taste is often the hallmark and base of a great soup.

A couple thoughts when you make a chicken-based stew. Most recipes will call for a chicken stock or chicken broth. To be clear, these are not the same and the variation in sodium AND potassium is enormous among the different products. I pulled what looked like a seemingly benign carton of chicken stock and was surprised to find it had 380mg of potassium per cup. Even with my experience, I couldn’t believe that some chicken stock/broth products had that much potassium! I’ve found Lipton no sodium chicken bouillon packets in my local Walmart before, but couldn’t find it recently, so I settled with the Great Value Organic Chicken broth, which had 140mg sodium/cup and 15 mg potassium/cup. Much better, right?

What Makes a Great Women’s Pajama?

A lot of things go into making a comfortable pair of PJs. Here are a few things to look out for.

Material: When it comes to comfort, the most important factor is the material that the sleepwear is made from. There are many different fabric options, so you need to have some idea of what works best for you.

Cotton is excellent if you want something soft and lightweight, especially for warmer weather, but it doesn’t work well to keep you warm. If you need something to keep you warm, look for cashmere, wool or fleece. If you want a year-round choice to you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, try silk.

Fit: Finding an excellent fitting set can often be a little bit of a challenge since many retailers use small, medium, large options, rather than numbered sizing. If you find it difficult to get the sizing right, you may need to look for companies that sell their sleepwear as separates rather than a set.

Price: For a lot of women, pajamas are a bit of an extravagance. You can always find an old t-shirt and sweats to sleep in when you’re at home, but it sometimes doesn’t cut it if you’re around people who don’t usually see you in your PJs.

Some of the sets on our list are pretty pricey, so they can make a lovely gift if you want to treat someone special. If you’re on a tight budget, check out Target – definitely one of the best places for good quality inexpensive options.

Pattern or Color: If you’re in a PJ with a color or print that you love, you feel more like yourself, and that can go a long way towards how comfortable you feel.

Pajamas with quirky patterns or material are a great way to show your personality, especially if other people aren’t going to see them and you’re only shopping to please yourself. The same goes for beautiful, luxurious soft cottons and silks.

Quality: Most PJs aren’t built to last too long, and if you’re wearing the same pair daily, you can expect buttons to eventually fall off, fabric to stretch, color to fade and elastic waistbands to break.


At this point, you might be wondering why we are using black pepper and coconut oil in this recipe. It will be a little bit technical, but I will do my best to explain:

First, let’s start with why we use black pepper:

As we discussed earlier, the key compound in turmeric is called curcumin. This is what makes turmeric so healthy and good for us. However, sadly for us, our bodies are unable to absorb (into our intestines and bloodstream) curcumin when we consume it just by itself.

This is where black pepper comes to our help. One of the active components in black pepper, piperine, is known to help us absorb the curcumin when they interact with each other.

In other words, a pinch of freshly ground black pepper helps our body to take in some of the benefits of this magical golden spice.

Second, let’s talk about why we use coconut oil:

The ancient Ayurveda practice makes golden milk tea with a little bit of ghee. The reason for this is because curcumin has poor solubility in water. In other words, in order for us to benefit from its full potential, turmeric needs to come in contact with oil.

In my version here, I used coconut oil as it is widely available, but if you have access to ghee feel free to use that instead.

Here you might ask, how much coconut oil should I use? I find that most recipes use a tablespoon of oil for 2 servings, which (depending on the milk you use) yields approximately 2 cups of turmeric golden milk.

3 nourishing soup recipes to revive you

Though the start of 2021 certainly looks and feels different from Januarys past, certain aspects of the new year remain the same. For many, that is taking the time to reset mentally, emotionally and physically.

While we at Voraciously aren’t quite experts in the first two areas, we can certainly help with the last in terms of what we put into our bodies and how that might make us feel. So to start the year, we’ve developed three nourishing soup recipes for anyone who is in need of such dishes.

For Olga Massov, that looks like a fragrant, restorative chicken-and-rice soup G. Daniela Galarza shared a version of Italian wedding soup and I developed a recipe for an easy farro-and-kale soup with peanut butter and a hint of spice.

Each brings all of the warmth, comfort and flavor you might desire this time of year without leaving you feeling weighed down and ready for a nap immediately after eating. So if you are looking for a recipe or three to help kick things off on the right foot, soup’s on.

Restorative Chicken and Rice Soup

As a Russian immigrant, I grew up with a familiar collection of Eastern European and Ashkenazi Jewish recipes: latkes, sharlotka, borscht. But it’s the chicken soup, a.k.a. Jewish penicillin, that I remember most vividly from my sick days as a child (and I got sick a lot). Eating the soup made me feel like I was slowly being brought back to life.

A few years ago, I was working as an editor at Phaidon, and my boss asked me to edit a manuscript from Elizabeth Street Cafe, the popular Vietnamese-inspired restaurant in Austin. One of the recipes was a comforting, congee-like chicken-and-rice breakfast soup. Eating it made me feel nourished and restored. I made it over and over, tweaking here and there, and finally creating my own version, an amalgamation of the Eastern European and Asian traditions: looser, brothier, but still every bit as aromatic as the original.

Visually, the soup is a feast for the eyes: bright green leaves of aromatic Thai basil and cilantro, as well as thin rings of chile, crunchy mung bean sprouts, bright white slivers of onion and deep red dots of sambal oelek. Fish sauce and brown sugar form a strong umami backbone, making you crave another spoonful even before you’ve swallowed your first. At home, we jokingly call this soup “the corpse reviver,” and for good reason. Whatever ails you, a bowl of this elixir — heady broth, aromatic with ginger, star anise, clove and cinnamon, thickened with glutinous rice, and fortified with pieces of chicken — instantly makes you feel revived and nourished.

Italian Wedding Soup

Nothing, it seems, about the dish we call Italian wedding soup is straightforward. Not its name, which is an imperfect translation of “minestra maritata,” meant to refer to the careful marriage of its ingredients — not its place on a wedding menu. And not its ingredients and preparation, which vary widely from region to region in Italy. In the United States, it’s best known, and well-loved, as a soup of greens, tiny pasta and meatballs, flavorful and fortifying.

As a child, it was a soup my babysitter, whose family came from Southern Italy, made for me and my brother on cold winter nights when my parents worked late. I remember helping shape the meatballs, tucking the squishy meat into my cupped palms. I remember the sound of her chopping crunchy greens and tender herbs and the smells that filled the kitchen, pungent and rich: garlic and pork and a tickle of spice. There would always be sausage in the soup, too, but I’d count the tiny meatballs in each bowl, pick around the greens and ask for extra cheese to sprinkle on top. Mostly, I remember it being a warming comfort, as all great soups should be.

HVAC Maintenance Tips

The following information is for educational purposes only. Tampering with your system may void your warranty. If you have any questions about your system, call a Trane Comfort Specialist™.


Schedule a service appointment in the spring and fall to prepare for both heating and cooling season.

Service your air conditioner in late winter or early spring, before cooling season.

Schedule an appointment in late summer or early fall, before heating season.


Keep your heating and cooling system running smooth by following these maintenance tips and scheduling regular service checkups before heating and cooling season. Your system will last longer and run more efficiently if cared for properly.

Outdoor Maintenance Spring/Fall
  • Clean any dirt, leaves and debris outside the main cabinet.
  • Inspect the base pan for blocked drain openings.
  • Inspect the coil and cabinet for any holes and leaks.
  • Inspect the fan blades while they’re in motion and stationary to determine wear and damage.
  • Inspect and clean outside of control box associated with unit.
Indoor Maintenance Spring/Fall
  • Clean or replace filters.
  • Check for leaks in the ductwork.
  • Check for any unusual odors when your system starts.
  • Listen for abnormal noises when your system starts.
  • Inspect your control box wiring and connections.


Here are a few tasks that you can do regularly to help your system run efficiently all year long.

  • Inspect the return air filter every month and replace it as needed.
  • Keep vegetation 18 inches away from each side of the outdoor unit.
  • Clean debris away from the compressor to maintain proper airflow.
  • Tell your technician if you hear any unusual noises.


Even if you schedule all routine service checks and follow our preventive maintenance checklists, sometimes heating and cooling systems break down. It’s important to know what to listen and look for and what problems need immediate attention.

Contact a dealer
  • If your energy bills increase but your usage rate remains the same.
  • If your air conditioner or furnace can’t keep a consistent comfort level.
  • If you notice bent or damaged fins or other parts of your outdoor unit.
  • If any part of your furnace has been under water.
  • If you notice an electrical burning smell. Turn off your unit immediately.


These suggestions can help you save money on energy bills and reduce the use of fossil fuels.
