Project: Crowdsourced Cookbook, Comfort Food Edition

Which comfort foods help you survive winter? Send us your recipes and contribute to GOOD's crowdsourced cookbook.

With freezing mornings and depressingly dark afternoons, winter's the perfect time to kick back with our favorite comfort foods. Hot soups, hot toddies, and hot chocolate are obvious favorites, but what's your personal culinary trick for getting through winter? Do you take a stab at meatloaf and mac and cheese? Or do you stick to healthy eating resolutions by perking up your salads with a blast of citrus?

In our latest project, we're asking the GOOD community to send us the best original recipes for wintry comfort foods. Just like with our Fall Edition, we'll publish the recipes and accompanying photos in a slideshow and a downloadable PDF. We'll call on community members to vote for their favorite recipe, and the editors will pick their favorite as well. The cooks behind the winning submissions will receive a year-long subscription to GOOD Magazine and a GOOD T-shirt.


It's winter. Which foods help you survive?


We want to discover and compile our community's favorite comfort food recipes for winter. Steal Grandma's secrets or come up with your own. Whatever comforting foods you're excited about eating and cooking this winter, we want to know about them and learn how to make them, too. Oh, and take a picture of (or graphically depict) your dish as well.


Send an e-mail to projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with your submission. Submissions must include the following: 1) name of dish 2) a short recipe (try to keep it to 6 steps or less) and 3) an image of the dish. We’ll take submissions now through January 23. Then we'll publish a Picture Show with a selection of the best submissions. We'll ask you, the GOOD community, to vote on your favorite, and we'll announce the Reader's Choice and Editor's Choice the first week of February.

Seventy-five years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.

The phrase "stay in your lane" is usually lobbed at celebrities who talk about politics on Twitter by people who disagree with them. People in the sports world will often get a "stick to sports" when they try to have an opinion that lies outside of the field of play.

In a move that feels like the subject line of a spam email or the premise of a bad '80s movie, online shopping mogul Yusaku Maezawa is giving away money as a social experiment.

Maezawa will give ¥1 million yen ($9,130) to 1,000 followers who retweeted his January 1st post announcing the giveaway. The deadline to retweet was Tuesday, January 7.
