My Favorite Comfort Foods
When I think of comfort foods I think of cool fall or winter days and the simmering of the crock-pot. I love soups, pastas and poultry. Who doesn’t love a huge bowl of homemade macaroni and cheese or a steaming bowl of baked potato soup? I know I do! The more toppings I can add the better.
I’m not the best chef in the world (my timer may or may not be the smoke alarm) but I’ve been doing it a long time for my family and there are some things I have mastered that I’d consider comfort food.
Pancakes… definitely a breakfast comfort food and especially nice on a lazy weekend morning in the winter. They’re just so filling and good. YUM!
Taco Soup – a fav of mine, in fact we just had it this week! It’s almost like a taco chili that I top with cheese, sour cream and crunched up tortilla chips. Every year it never fails I make it as fall approaches and this was my week. So good.
Pasta anything. Like I said, I’m a pasta fan. I feel like it’s a heavy enough food to be my comfort food. I don’t even care what it is, mac & cheese, raviolis, fettuccine Alfredo… the list goes on an on. Add some chicken to it and even better.
Do you have a comfort food you can’t live without? Let me know below… maybe we’ll do some recipe trading!
Becca Fletcher hates Christmas so much, she’s considering getting ‘Bah Humbug!’ tattooed on her forehead. She has her reasons for being Little Miss Grinch; Reasons that make this the very worst time of year for her.
Now, though, she can’t avoid her version of ho-ho-hell – because she’s travelling to the Comfort Food Cafe to spend the festive season with her sister Laura, and her family. She’s expecting mulled wine, the smell of pine trees, 24-hour Christmas movie marathons and all kinds of very merry torture.
But little does Becca know that the Comfort Food Cafe is like no other place on earth. Perched on a snow-covered hill on a windswept bay, it’s a place full of friendship; a place where broken hearts can heal, and a place where new love can blossom. It’s a place where Becca’s Christmas miracle really could happen – if only she can let it…
Inviting readers new and old to pull up a cosy armchair, Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe is the novella-length follow-up to the 2016 best-seller Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe.
