The only sensible thing to do when it's minus-one-freaking-billion-degrees outside? Hibernate on the couch under a pile of blankets with a warm bowl of homemade soup, a hunk of fresh-baked bread, and a season of your favorite TV show* on Netflix Instant. Duh. The Soup & Bread Cookbook: More Than 100 Seasonal Pairings for Simple, Satisfying Meals ($18) offers up tons of hearty options for both bread and soup, like Moroccan vegetable soup, feijoada soup, pretzel buns, and focaccia. Bonus: All that cooking and baking will help keep your house warm.
*Outblush recommends: The IT Crowd, Burn Notice, and Dollhouse. Semi-oldies, but goodies.
