Cozy Snow Day Recipes

By Katrina Scott on
On chilly winter days, all we want to do is curl up in our pajamas with a candle and something delicious and warming to eat...anyone else?!
Today we’re sharing three of our favorite snow day recipes — a cozy crockpot soup, banana bread because we love to bake on chilly days, and hot cocoa (with a TIU twist!) because it reminds us of snow days as kids!
Enjoy and stay warm babe ❄️
