Ooh, it's cold. I just want to wrap my electric blanket around me and wear it like a coat. The next best thing to that would be a steaming bowl of something delicious. Here are a few cold-weather dishes for dinner parties or cozy dinners at home.

Rich and creamy cauliflower and potato gratin [via Wednesday Chef]

Rustic chicken breasts braised with hard cider and parsnips [via Bella Eats]

A round-up of easy casseroles (baked spaghetti, chicken Divan, tamale pie) from around the web [via Saveur]

Healthy yet hearty leek, mushroom, and barley stew [via Pink of Perfection]

And for the meat-eaters, Texas-style beef brisket chili [via Bon Appetit]

Nothing warms you up faster than a cocktail. Here are a few beauties from around the web:

So pretty I want to bathe in it: the New York in Love cocktail [via Eat Make Read]

10 warming drinks (the Peppermint Paddy, Alpine coffee, apple-brandy hot toddies ) [via Food + Wine]

The classic Old-Fashioned [via NYT]

Yum! These are all good ideas. Think of them would be right for my first-ever dinner party? What's the best way to contact you since I need your help! Thanks, Paula

I think Colin could go for a steaming bowl of Old Fashioned.
