Winter is the season for comfort food. At Foodini’s, we create cozy baked dishes and other hearty meals to warm your belly on cold days. Whether you are looking for a meal delivery service in New Jersey or satisfying dishes for winter from our event catering, keep these five options in mind.

Baked Pasta Dishes

Baked pasta dishes are a seasonal favorite for the chilly months of the year. We get many requests for baked pasta dishes such as pans of veggie or traditional lasagna. Manicotti is another favorite to enjoy on a cold winter day. We prepare these dishes with fresh herbs and spices, diced Roma tomatoes, extra-virgin olive oil and aged Italian cheeses.

Cheesy Casseroles

Cheesy casseroles remind many of our customers of home-cooked meals that their parents or grandparents used to make at home. A grilled cheese and tomato casserole combines the best of a toasty grilled cheese sandwich and a rich bowl of creamy tomato soup. Another great casserole is beef and cheddar with flat egg noodles. This type of dish is filling and pairs well with a farmhouse loaf of bread. Our meal delivery service prepares many dishes like these and can customize the ingredients in order to suit your dietary preferences.

Beef Stew

Beef stew is a classic winter meal. This dish takes a while if you make it at home, or you could have it as one of your options through our event catering. There are many ways to make beef stew, but most of them center around slowly cooked and tender cuts of meat and a richly flavored broth that is slightly thickened. Baby red potatoes and sliced carrots add nutrition, color, and texture. Celery and onions enhance the hearty flavor of this meal. Pair it with buttermilk biscuits for a meal to warm a crowd on the coldest of winter days.

French Onion Soup

French onion soup is another perfect meal for the winter season. We like to use sweet Vidalia onions in our version of this soup. The soup is paired with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and thick slices of sourdough bread to dip into the soup bowl.


Everybody has their own favorite chili, and there are many ways to make it. We offer a few varieties, and our personal chef also allows you to customize your ingredients. A white chicken chili with pinto beans is a classic way to serve this meal. Another great option is a traditional ground beef with Italian sausage chili. Vegetarian chili is also a hearty winter meal.
