From a wedding cake that takes all day to bake, to creative ways to celebrate the number four, we've gathered some fun (and funny) ways to celebrate Leap Day.
Toad in the HoleLeap Day ... leaping ... frogs ... toads ... toad in the hole! This classic British dish features sausages cooked in a Yorkshire pudding batter.
Marinated Chicken QuartersSince Leap Day comes just every four years, cooking a quartered chicken seems more than appropriate. Plus, since you have to pay for a whole extra day of food this year, why not turn to the humble whole chicken? It's cheaper per pound than chicken breasts.
Creamy Four-Cheese MacaroniThis macaroni and cheese dish calls for four different types of cheese: fontina (or Swiss), fresh Parmesan, extra-sharp cheddar, and light Velveeta. Toast to the number "4" and whip up this easy, creamy side dish.
Fresh Orange Wedding CakeYou've got a whole extra day this year, so why not spend it cooking something you'd normally never try? We love this gorgeous wedding cake - but yes, it does need a whole day of your time!
Four-Grain FlapjacksBarley flour, whole-wheat flour, oats, and stone-ground yellow cornmeal give these hearty, stick-to-your-ribs flapjacks their fantastic flavor. Plus, they make a perfect Leap Day breakfast!
