Houses all across the East Coast are hunkered down in anticipation for the worst of today's storm, Hurricane Sandy, with many expecting power outages that could last up to a week. While we were all encouraged to stock up our pantries over the weekend and are now staying inside for the time being, knowing what to do with all of those pantry staples once the lights go out can be a bit difficult.
In preparation for all the impending chaos, we are pushing aside our scheduled Halloween article to bring you some hurricane-ready recipes. These are all simple, functional recipes that will come very much in handy in case of a power outage. Remember, canned foods and extra water are key! Authorities recommend being prepared with one gallon of water per day per person in the household. Stay safe, East Coasters!
