In the depths of winter, my taste always veers toward comfort food. Cozying up on the couch with my sweetheart, some yummy home cooking, and a good movie always serve to banish the winter blahs—at least temporarily. And it's even better when that food is dessert, which turns any gathering of friends into a small celebration. Here's a collection of three delicious desserts that are easy and cheap.                                                            
You know when you're kind of sick of all the usual foods you make, and you're looking for something fast, simple, and hearty, but you just don't know where to start? That's where the hot and cold salad comes in. It's made up of stuff that's simple to keep around the house, and it lends itself easily to adding some extra ingredients here and there. You have an extra potato from the au gratin you made for that potluck? Throw it in! An extra tomato left over from your famous salsa? Mix it up! So, dig into this hot and cold salad during hot or cold times of the year for hearty and yummy eating pleasure.
