Snow Day Recipes


New York City just saw its first big snowstorm of the season, and winter has only just begun! When it’s chilly and blustery outside, the last thing I want to do is brave the outdoors, but I still want to enjoy a nice meal. So I came up with a couple easy recipes to warm up even the coldest of snow days.

For breakfast, frittatas are always a nice option. There are no rules when it comes to making your own. Sautee any veggies of your choice in an oven-safe skillet with some olive oil, whisk in eggs and and cook on the stove for about five minutes, then transfer to a 400 degree oven for about ten more minutes. Frittatas are perfect for snowy days because you can keep it on the counter or in the fridge, and they’re good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Another snow day favorite is Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe. It’s a great option because it only takes four ingredients to make a warm, satisfying meal. Boil your spaghetti to al dente, mix in butter, Parmesan cheese, and cracked pepper and voila, you have an Italian original sure to satisfy all tastes.

Hope you enjoy these snowed-in recipes. Remember: stay warm and eat well!
