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.

Cheese Blintzes
