There are few things that bring warmth to the soul during a cold winter (especially during a more isolated pandemic), but comfort food surely sits atop that list. If you’re anything like me, you need a little extra motivation to elevate the simplest of meals and tackle from-scratch recipes—and let’s be real, not give in to the temptations of takeout half of the week.
Our latest meal plan muse is the recently premiered, Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, available on the Food Network and Discovery Plus. Having authored two cookbooks, Jo has long been a go-to for recipes that not only happily fill bellies, but warm hearts, too. Now, we get to experience her crafting beautiful meals in action as she stands in the most charming studio kitchen inside a transformed historic Gristmill.
Take a peek below at some of the recipes we’re adding to our winter rotation and shop the look of Jo’s kitchen studio!

Mrs. Gail’s Chicken & Fettuccine Alfredo
Fettuccine Alfredo is the epitome of comfort food and you might just want to eat this one straight out of the pan. The crispy chicken and squeeze of lemon takes this classic to the next level.
Baked Brie with Nut Topping
Is there really anything better than baked brie? Top with nuts and brown sugar and pair with green apple slices and now we’re talking. You don’t need to have a gathering for an excuse to make this one—you can always pick up a smaller piece of brie, perfect for a date night for two.
Lucy’s Peanut Butter Brownies
Sign. me. up. Brownies have been my go-to comfort dessert this entire pandemic. This decadent version may just ruin the experience of ever eating a regular brownie again.
