Eat This List: 5 things to cook up in a deep freeze

I couldn’t resist sharing Kat Kinsman’s great ideas for 5 things worth cooking up in this deep freeze. I heartily endorse the beer bread one and everything-in-my-fridge soups. I’m still using broth frozen from my Thanksgiving turkey as the base for sweeter-based soups (after all, the bird was basted in maple syrup). And I just realized we’re the only people in the neighborhood that haven’t scraped our driveway and sidewalk — sorry mailman. Which gives me even more excuses to stay in and cook. Cheers to being snowed in (which, in DC, happens with a couple of inches and lasts for days)!


This is the seventeenth installment of “Eat This List” — a regularly recurring list of things chefs, farmers, writers and other food experts think you ought to know about. Pictured above: supermarket shelves plundered in anticipation of a blizzard in January, 2011.
