In The Kitchen: Simmer Down With Hilary Duff

Sharing one of her favorite recipes for tailgating and fall fêtes with girlfriends, Hilary Duff, like anyone ready to welcome fall, loves a good, old-fashioned stew.

“Warm, savory stews and a glass of red wine make the perfect cozy meal on a chilly fall evening,” she said. “I love a hearty and healthy bean and chicken sausage stew paired with Callie Collection’s Fresh Red Blend,” added Duff of the brand’s new red wine.

Easy and delicious, Duff’s stew is simple to make by yourself, but more fun when prepared with friends for a comfy night in.

“Making a soup or stew may seem intimidating, but it is actually incredibly easy—especially when you get your girls to help you,” she said. “Sometimes we put the ‘group’ in ‘soup’ by asking each of my friends to bring one simple ingredient, like kale, chicken broth or olive oil. We chop, chat and sip wine while the stew simmers, and enjoy our amazing meal.”
