Soups and stews are a couple of my favorite things to make, especially during the colder months. I love the limitless options of what you can do with them, the aromas that fill the house for hours, the fresh ingredients and the fact that I usually have enough leftovers for a few lunches. The beef stew I’m sharing is very hearty with a rich, creamy base and it’s packed with veggies and greens, which always makes me feel good about what I’m eating.

Those who know me well know my favorite place to be is in my kitchen, cooking or entertaining! It’s a place I can have fun, relieve stress, get creative and make memories with my family and friends. My kitchen is undoubtedly my happy place. This past weekend we had so much fun celebrating my birthday with family at our house. The menu was exactly what I wanted: pizza, wings, western salad, chocolate cake, my favorite pie (more to come on that), beer, wine, and cocktails. Did I mention wine? LOTS of wine. By Sunday our bodies were craving a healthy-ish meal to kick off our week on the right foot, which brings me to this recipe.
