Fresh food can be hard to come by in the winter. Not just because most fruits and vegetables don't taste as good and are expensive, but also because weather conditions can make a run to the grocery store unpleasant or downright dangerous. That means you can be stuck with an empty fridge on the exact night you'd most like a comforting meal. It's possible to see these nights as an opportunity for creative cooking, so rather than ordering a pizza or braving the weather, turn to your pantry.

"It's really a jacket and pants set with a tuxedo stripe down the side," said Patti Anderson, 53, of Smithsburg, describing what she wears in lieu of the little black dress. "Does that count?" A little black dress is a sometimes formal, sometimes casual frock called "little" because it's not a formal, floor-length gown.
