Smoky Pork Calzone

Be prepared for anything when Punxsutawney Phil comes out of his hole this Groundhog Day. Whether he sees his shadow and proclaims the doldrums of winter will continue or scurries around in a jovial spring-will-be-here-before-you-know-it jig, this mix of cold-weather comfort food and pre-warm-weather dishes are sure to be a hit.

Stay warm with Alton’s Baked Macaroni and Cheese. In cold weather, nothing is better than gooey macaroni topped with a crispy layer of cheese and bread crumbs. Save leftovers for fried macaroni and cheese.

Food Network Magazine’s Smoky Pork Calzones (pictured above) are an easy weeknight meal. Ground pork, smoked paprika and shredded mozzarella put a hearty spin on the typical pizza-dough calzone.

You’d never guess this Spicy Vegetarian Chili is seasoned with cocoa powder and coffee. Make an extra-large batch and freeze the leftovers.

Food Network Magazine’s Bucatini With Pesto and Shrimp is the perfect dish for the transitioning seasons.

Pretend it’s summer and use a grill-pan to cook up blade steak for a Grilled Steak Salad.

Use a skillet to stir-fry Chicken and Broccolini at home. Scallions add extra crunch while red jalapeno peppers bring just a touch of heat. Top with sliced almonds or cashews.

Try a new dish at brunch: Chicken and Asparagus Crepes. Fill store-bought crepes with ricotta cheese, shallots, chicken and herbs for a decadent meal no matter what groundhog Phil decides.
