Soups: What’s better on a cold wintery day than a pot of soup? It will calm any nerves you might have about the storm.
Shakshuka: We love this dish, because almost anything goes. So rummage around for some veggies and eggs and you have a perfectly delicious supper.
Chicken: If it’s meat you are craving, and you’re luck enough to have a chicken in the freezer, you really couldn’t do better than this simple, delicious chicken. Its lemon and za’atar are zingy enough to brighten up this dark day.
Dessert: Rugelach are a bit time consuming, but worth the effort. If you would rather spend the time hanging out with your family and friends, try the olive oil cake instead.
