Greetings from New Jersey!
As you've probably seen on the news, NJ did not get snow in epic proportions as predicted. But I've still got an "official" snow day to catch up on some writing so I'm happy about that!
If you are also taking advantage of a snow day (official or not), here are two great recipes that are relatively quick and definitely delicious. The first one comes from Chef Tom Colicchio - One Pot Pasta with Broccoli, Ham, and Parmesan. It's an easy weeknight supper, and if you are not crazy about broccoli, sub in frozen green peas, asparagus, or cauliflower.
Of course, you'll need a sweet to wrap up your weeknight meal, so how about Joy the Baker's Molasses Ginger and Dark Chocolate Cookies? I made these over the Christmas holiday and they were devoured so quickly that I had to make them again just last week. Warning: the heady aroma of cardamom, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon may just make you swoon with anticipation.

Stay warm, eat well, be happy!
