10 recipes to keep you warm on a snowy day
By Heather Janssen, AccuWeather staff writer
When snow and cold hits, you can stay warm inside and try some of these snow day recipes.
Start the snowy day with a warm, cozy and healthy dish. These pancakes are wheat-free and include a mixture of almond and white rice flour. A small amount of milk is used to help create a thick and fluffy texture to the pancakes. Top the pancakes with some maple syrup, apple slices and a bit of cinnamon.
If you have lots of people stuck inside with you on the snowy day, work together to make lasagna. While there are many ways to make lasagna, this recipe is more basic for those who may have not made it before. With this recipe, some things will need to be made from scratch but there are pre-made components. Nothing warms you up like a meaty and cheesy meal.
A delicious beef stew will be sure to help you to keep warm on a snowy day. While this recipe will take a time commitment, it will make plenty of servings to share. The best part about beef stew is that you can use fewer, additional or different ingredients that you think will work best.
Chili with pasta and cheddar
This dish is a variation on the classic warm and cozy winter food: chili. If looking for a hearty meal, this chili recipe includes "a tasty amalgamation of spices, ground beef, and velvety vegetables sitting atop a bed of buttery noodles," as stated on The Kitchn's website. Top off the chili with a helping of cheddar cheese (or any cheese that you prefer).
