This weekend’s forecast is looking pretty gloomy. But rainy days are the perfect excuse to spend more time in the kitchen. You can relax, try some new recipes (or old favorites) and get the whole family involved. Here are some ideas to get you started.
- Few things warm the kitchen like the smell of baking bread. If making your own seems daunting, try this no-knead bread recipe.
- Grilled cheese is one of my favorite rainy day comfort foods. But do you know the secret to crispier, faster grilled cheese sandwiches?
- Fill your belly with the hearty goodness of Guinness gumbo, which our food writer Addie Broyles calls the “favorite gumbo I’ve ever made.”
- Scones, cream puffs, crisps and cookies — we have recipes and tips for all that and more in our Year of Baking series.
