    This winter can get lost. Sure, a certain degree of misery is expected between November and March, but this season's been extra tough for almost the entire country. Endless snowstorms, a drought of road salt, and sub-zero temps have made shut-ins of us all.

    It's not just me, right? Call me nuts, but I don't like to go outside when being there physically hurts. Furthermore, that would waste a perfect opportunity to stay in and get cozy with my kitchen. This last month in particular has gotten me reacquainted with one of most simple, delicious, inspiring courses in the canon: soup. On this, I know I'm not alone. Christene Barberich, our own editor-in-chief, called me over one day after reading a Vogue piece on the wonders of bone broth. Soon enough, half the editorial department had turned around to talk about their latest one-pot wonders. Soup. So hot right now.

    Christene assigned me the challenge of a knock-out, cold-crushing, hall-of-soup-fame story. And, because I am a team player, and I'll do anything to not have to leave the house at this point, I accepted. For the weeks that followed, I spent all my free nights in my boyfriend's kitchen (Harry's a team player, too), testing and tweaking dozens of recipes to find the best of the best. Herein lies a slideshow that will save your February (and probably most of March). Even better — it'll save you cash. Grab a ladle and a good baguette for dipping. We'll see you next Spring.

But, that's not the case. read

Help! I Want High-Rise Jeans That Aren't Too High

Taylor Swift has kept the world guessing by baring her midriff while refusing to expose her belly button. But, while the matching-set look Swifty prefers is cute, the high waistline doesn't always translate well to other forms of clothing — namely, jeans. This has been a struggle for the short-torsoed among us since read
