6 of our favorite recipes to make on a snowy day

We see your eggs, milk and white bread stored for snow forecasts, and we are here for – a snowy day is doing seems the perfect time to take it easy and make a lot of French toast.

Yes, fellow who takes his arm to the shelf with canned soup and throws them all into your shopping cart as if your life depended on it, we've seen you too. But we are here to help you look beyond the stacks of bread and cans from Campbell.

To begin with, some of us think you should ignore the impressively low ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and go to Snow Day & # 39; must look. After you have done that, because the runtime is only about one and a half hours and therefore not a big investment in time, you can create one or more of these recipes approved by snow day.

Let's start with a few projects to keep you busy:

Peach Melba shortbread bars, above. You are happy that it is snowing, but deep inside you are still a bit of a mess that it is January and winter and dark and gray. We understand it. Brighten up the room with a stack of these sticks with jam. They only need one bowl and about 20 minutes to get rid of them, making them quite low for projects. Moreover, you can use any sweet domain you might have: guava, strawberry, blueberry, grape, rhubarb, you name it. And if you do not have almonds, do the bars with almost every nut or seed hanging in your pantry or freezer.

No-Knead Pizza Dough. It is not a delivery, it is pizza dough that you made on a snowy day, which was turned into dirty pizza the next day, and the rest froze to have on hand for future nights when only pizza will do. You are so progressive.

Cheesy French Toast Pitas. You did keep your Dinner in Minutes pantry, did not you? Good! Because that means you have the ingredients at hand to make this cheesy, savory, stuffed pitas. Other recipes for cool weather that we notice: Spanish eggs and potatoes; Warm potato and almond soup; and 30 minutes of spaghetti and meatballs.

Chickpea Tikka Masala. YOU could make batches on chilli, or you can make this spicy, vegan riff on the British Indian stack, chicken tikka masala. Serve it with flatbread and / or rice.

Muffins for all purposes. If you are the type that bakes muffins to parties and gives them to neighbors as a kickback to create your sidewalk, then we have a recipe for you. In their most basic form, these sensitive nubs require only seven ingredients; but if you have a few pantry items at hand (dried fruit, chocolate pieces, nuts, poppy seeds, etc.), you can adjust to your heart's content. Take a cue from our Instapals.

Salted Cardamom Drinking Chocolate. Thick, creamy and enriched with cardamom, this warming drink has a little secret: it is dairy-free. (It also happens to be nicely enriched with Chacho, a jalapeño infused reed spirit, but we leave that line of experimentation to you.)
