Adding a dash of cooking fire safety to your favorite winter meals

By LisaMarie Sinatra

If you’re like most of us this winter, the endless snow storms and frigid temperatures have kept you inside more than you would like. This cold has also turned us to the kitchen where creating and indulging in plates of “comfort food” feels like the best remedy for beating out the winter blues.

But for those of us who are a little worse for wear (at least here in New England, shoveling has become a daily task, and getting around is a test in sheer nerves and patience), it’s easy to forget the “little things” meant to keep us safe in the kitchen. So, if you’ll allow us to indulge (no pun intended!) you just a bit, NFPA wants to remind everyone about the action steps you can take when that fabulous mac and cheese recipe starts calling your name! Watch our latest cooking fire safety video below (and share it with family and friends!) and remember to put safety first this winter season.

For more information about winter fire safety, check out USFA and NFPA’s Put a Freeze on Winter Fires campaign. Additional cooking information is always available on NFPA’s Cooking Fire Safety Central webpage. While you’re at it, if you’ve got a great winter recipe to share, we want to hear from you. And don’t forget to tell us how you’ve added safety to your favorite recipe. Thanks!
