Our favorite recipes from around the internet this week include chicken apple stir-fry, eggnog banana bread and red wine-braised short ribs

While we love to cook up (and eat) our in-house Southern Kitchen recipes, we still spend plenty of time reading recipes from bloggers and other food websites. Every Friday, we'll round up some of our favorites so that you'll have plenty of fodder for your weekend kitchen experiments.

Our favorite recipes this week include red wine-braised short ribs, eggnog banana bread, chicken apple stir-fry and a no-bake cookie & milk cake bomb. It's time to get cooking.

Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs

This recipe from Bon Appetit will warm you up on a cold winter night. Let the ribs, vegetables, spices and red wine cook in a large Dutch oven and if you can, Bon Appetit recommends let it sit overnight to get the best results.
