Smoky Braised Sausage and White Beans in Savory Peanut Sauce

Until about a week ago, I thought we weren’t going to see much cold weather here.

Cabbage, White Bean, and Sausage Soup

One of my favorite things about winter is making soup, and even though I make it a lot, I make so many different kinds that we never get sick of it. Cabbage soup – in any of its variations – is one of my favorites.
