Chili and cornbread

Hmmm its pretty hard to beat grilled cheese, but a good cream of potato soup(with bacon on top,everything is better with bacon) comes close in my book

Toast with Earth Balance.

Biscuits & gravy, homefried potatoes and tofu scramble makes me feel the best!

I’d say pizza is a close second.

I like white beans with ham in them, turnip greens and cornbread. Or some cornbread crumbled up in a glass of buttermilk is good.

@dd Sorry you’ve had a sucky day.

Rich, chocolatey brownies with caramel swirled through them…I might have to make them tonight!

Also, my friend found a recipe for homemade Oreos, another favorite comfort food :)

Secret indulgence food: sugary breakfast cereal.

Comforting foods: mom’s pot roast, grandma’s split pea soup with dumplings, my famous pasta.

I’m so excited about the change of seasons! It means baking for me! Crisps and muffins and shortbread and cookies and winter pie. I love winter pie. It’s full of rich, wintery goodness.

Lamb shanks in a very long braise of red wine and a chiffonade of carrots, onions, garlic, celery, bay, and thyme.
Plain boiled potatoes. Very floury and hot.
With about eight friends.
With lights on the table when it’s dark and blustery outside.
And the good dog waiting for bones under the table.
And sad, lonesome music playing, to remind us that none of us really are lonesome – we’re all eating another creature together. MMM, primitive.

fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy and green beans.

I second susanc. Braised lamb shanks is a fall favorite for me. Very warm and comforting. I then add the leftover liquid to soup. Yum.

I have recently developed a recipe for an Italian soup with a base of chicken stock and pasta, greens, onion, zucchini, cannelini beans, sometimes tomatoes and my ground turkey meatballs made with basil, garlic and parmesan cheese. So cozy!

I also like chili with football games.

A childhood favorite (with football games and for holidays) is homemade clam dip with fritos.

Homemade buttered popcorn or any kind of cheese.
