Chestnuts roasting...

It's a classic almost to the point of cliché, but one of my favorite winter activites is to sit by the fire with family and a nutcracker. The extra effort turns snacking into a truly social activity, and it's a wonderful opportunity to catch up at the end of a blustery day.

Nuts take center stage in baking this time of year as well, and with that in mind, Epicurious has put together a visual guide to different nut varieties. Have a look you might find something new to try.

Living in a town whose name includes the word chestnut, I've seen them strewn all over the sidewalks.

But I am of the opinion that roasted chestnuts taste best in Piazza Navona.
