Category - Comfort Food

What is comfort food? Something that makes us feel safe? Something that reminds us of home? Whatever it is, comfort foods tend to be soft, warm, and easy to prepare. Potatoes, pasta, and soups feature prominently. Here are some of my favorite comfort foods.

Black Bean Zucchini Quesadillas

Black bean zucchini quesadillasBlack beans, zucchini, and a bit of cheese sandwiched between two tortillas – this may be the best quesadilla you’ve ever tasted.

Bread Pudding

Simple bread pudding is the ultimate in comfort food, not to mention a great way to use up stale bread.

Broiled Asparagus

Broiled asparagus topped with cheesy bread crumbs is the perfect dish for spring.

Broiled Ricotta Gnocchi

Gnocchi are usually treated like a variety of pasta and served with sauce. But these broiled ricotta gnocchi are great served plain or as dumplings.

Brownies

The ultimate treat for chocolate lovers.

Buttermilk Biscuits

There’s nothing quite like buttermilk biscuits hot out of the oven.

Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rollsNormally filled with a mixture of ground beef and rice, cabbage rolls are a staple in Eastern Europe and a favorite in many other countries. Try these vegetarian cabbage rolls stuffed with rice and vegetables for an equally tasty main course.

Cauliflower Gratin
