Recipe Round-Up: 75 Comfort Foods


Yesterday we got a couple inches of snow, plus some icy roads. It’s cold. And gray. And cold, gray days make me think of comfort foods, warm, rich, hearty meals that make you feel like you’re being hugged. Dishes that make you think of roaring fires in the fireplace, fuzzy socks, and snuggling on the couch with your other half while the wind roars outside. I don’t have a recipe to share with you today (my new camera is still getting… figured out) but I thought it was a perfect opportunity to do a Comfort Foods Recipe Round-Up! Stay warm. Indulge. Enjoy!

  1. Julie,
    How utterly perfect your timing is. Yoda, I am typing like . . .
    I don’t even know where to begin everything sounds and looks so wonderful!
    I’ll start at the top. It’s a plan. Or maybe with dessert . . .
    Anyway thanks for this, as it ties in with the headnotes for the pizza I am avoiding typing up right now so I can include this link in my nattering about comfort foods.
