Recipes for a Snowed In Weekend

I'm culling the Internet for inspiration and a massive grocery store run for this weekend's predicted 12-18 inches of snow in DC. I know I won't make *all* of these, but I had to share some of the more insanely delicious looking ones in case some of you do (and report back!)

Breakfast Quinoa by Alejandra Owens at One Bite at a Time, inspired by Martha Stewart
I've become semi obsessed with quinoa, but I've only had it in savories for lunch or dinner. Dying to try this sweet breakfast version.


Local DC restaurant Vidalia's Mac n Cheese
I haven't been to Vidalia in quite a while, but one thing I recall they do *really* well is the mac n cheese. Thanks to Washingtonian magazine for getting the chef to spill the recipe.

Greek Nachos by VanillaKitchen.Blogspot.com
I suspect if shut indoors for 3 days, I'm going to ingest my body weight in Tostitos and cheddar. This looks like a great option to switch things up come Superbowl Sunday.

My Giada deLaurentis inspired Butternut Squash & Vanilla Risotto
Hearty, enjoyable to make, cheesy and sweet at the same time. You won't be disappointed.

Heirloom Tomato Panzanella by Michael Chiarello
After all of the heavy stuff, it might be nice to have a winter bread salad option to lighten things up.

Arugula, Bacon & Gruyere Bread Pudding by Gourmet Magazine. I've had this made by @skinshoos and can verify it's an amazing savory for breakfast or lunch.

Papardelle alla Carbonera by Lisa Fountain of What Lolita Eats
This one comes my Boston based fellow Floridian expat blogger Lisa. The photo sold me before I even looked at the recipe. Also love that it runs with that breakfast for dinner vibe that snow weekends call for...


This indoor Baby Back Ribs recipe from SavoryReviews.com
The man loves the ribs. We have no grill. Probably unsafe to drive to Chilis. And, Whole Foods has baby back ribs on sale. Voila!

Almost No Knead Rustic Bread (also known as Crack Bread for it's addicting qualities) at AdventuresInShaw.com inspired by Cooks Illustrated
Everyone swears by this bread. This could be the weekend I try it out.

Croissant & Chocolate Bread Pudding by Real Simple Magazine
This piqued my interest on the heels of the amazing Chocolate Almond Croissant that I had a Bouchon in Vegas last week.

Baked Eggs by PeteBakes.com
I'm a sucker for anything you can bake and serve in cute ramekins.

Sweet Potato Bacon Biscuits by Emeril Lagasse
Emeril, you had my boy at bacon and me at sweet.

Shrimp & Corn Chowder by Real Simple Magazine
I ripped this one out of the magazine on a flight a few weeks ago. Looks filling, but up my non-meat eating alley.

These hot chocolate recipes from Jenna Huntsberger at Modern Domestic
A variety of warm, chocolatey to warm you up on the cold days.
