I just bought a townhome that has this in the master bath. I thought it was a little strange at first but I love it now that I am living there.

When I was growing up, my dad would make us something called chocolate toast. It is a similar concept to cinnamon toast but you mix the sugar with cocoa powder. It's more dessert like than breakfast so we loved it! :)

Garlic gets used the most but I couldn't live without cumin either.

The only one I have memorized from that top list is Marcella Hazan's Amazing 4-Ingredient Tomato Sauce. It is my go to dish when I want a good meal during the week but don't want a lot of hassle. Not on the list is salsa. I have both a green and a red salsa that I know by heart.

I'm the odd person that is able to go cold turkey without any major side effects and I did late last year. I found that what I really wanted in the morning was something hot to drink so I substituted non-caffeinated herbal teas.

I prefer my pancakes with butter only. I'll eat them with syrup occasionally though but it's room temp not cold or hot.

I eat most leftovers cold and I like them just as well cold as reheated.

I also found after I started cycling that I really love the combination of bananas and oreos washed down with red gatorade.

The only cookies we ever made during the holidays were sugar cookies that we decorated as kids. I associate Christmas with homemade candy and quick breads

Other suggestions are to fill up as many containers of water that you can find. The water may not be safe to drink. Stock up on canned food but make sure you have a can opener that doesn't require electricity. Pack your freezers as tight as you can. It will stay frozen longer if it's full rather than partially empty.


Cooking in a Hurricane? 5 Tips for Staying Safe & Well-Fed

I can't comment on the oven since mine is electric. My stovetop is gas and during Hurricane Ike, I could use the stovetop but I had to light it with a lighter. Apparently the starter thingy is electric because it didn't work until the electricity came back on.

Not necessarily all food related but this was my list of the 25 things I learned from Hurricane Ike 3 years ago: http://mrssquirrelassassin.blogspot.com/2008/09/25-things-i-learned-from-ike-in-no.html
