Join us each month as we round up our favorite seasonal posts from the Cooking Light Bloggers’ Connection.

This month’s theme is comfort food, and we love these home-cooked, delicious classics that manage to keep calories in check.

Chicken Piccata: One pot. Minimal mess. Maximum flavor. Panning The Globe adds briny capers and bright lemon wedges to the skillet to really make this Italian classic shine.

Red Beans and Rice Soup: Kidney beans, rice, bacon, and smoked sausage are the main ingredients in this hearty, comforting meal. Packed with rich flavors, Lemons for Lulu's soup comes together in just 35 minutes. What's not to love?

Roasted Sunchokes: This root vegetable is often unheard of, but once had, simply impossible to forget. The Mom Chef Taking On Magazines suggests tossing them in oil, salt, pepper and herbs, and baking until a caramelized crisp exterior forms. Delicious!

10-Minute Cinnamon Raisin Brown Rice Breakfast Porridge: Nothing compares to a warm breakfast bowl on a chilly winter morning. Perfect for busy weekdays, An Edible Mosaic's brown rice porridge comes together in a snap and yields enough servings for several days.

Caramelized Onion & Broccoli Pull-Apart Bread: Forget the veggie tray at your next party—Teaspoon of Spice's riff on monkey bread is a fun way to sneak greens into your menu.
