Admit it. You have a comfort food - a favorite dish that makes you feel just a bit nostalgic or sentimental. Did your mom make the best meat loaf? Were there always warm chocolate chip cookies at Grandma's house? Did your dad make the most decadent mac and cheese? Let these comfort food recipes take you back to the security of childhood or warm, pleasant memories.
After a soccer game or just on a rainy day, nothing says "comfort" like a bowl of tomato soup! Here's one you can load into the crockpot and come home from your skiing, biking or parade watching to a warm bowl of warmer memories.
Take a special trip down memory lane by maked grilled cheese sandwiches to go with your tomato soup. What makes these sandwiches grown up? Wine and brie! The mostly cheddar filling will taste better than you remember.
Good fried chicken tastes like home! When did your family serve it? Sunday dinner? Fourth of July? At picnics? Here's a version that's baked in the oven, but matches the flavor and crunch of deep-fried chicken.
There's yum in every bite of this meatloaf, from the sweet and spicy glaze to the buttermilk and panko mixed into the meat. Fresh herbs add lovely flavor. Make sure you bake enough to make sandwiches the next day!
These are easy, easy biscuits to make from scratch - no need to pop open a cardboard can! If you've never made biscuits from scratch, you need to start now - pre-packaged biscuit dough is convenient, but they are no match for homemade!
Ice cream is comforting is so many ways! Cook up a creamy caramel custard, chill and process in an ice cream maker. Go ahead and use a hand cranker if you're feeling really nostalgic, but no one will complain if you use an electric ice cream maker - if you promise to share!
Homemade apple pie is among the most comforting comfort foods. Use a prepared pie crust or make your own from scratch. (It's not that hard!) Then fill it with this classic combination of spices and sliced apples.
