On cold days like this, we love the rich stew that is Beef Bourguignon. We adapted this Julia Child classic for the slow cooker, which makes food lovers on a time crunch extremely happy. This dish is perfect for a date night at home and goes great with a glass of red wine. You can serve the stew over mashed potatoes or thick, fresh bread. (We prefer the potatoes, but admit the bread is easier and still delicious.) Make fudge brownies the day before, so you’ll have a decadent dessert, too.
