Five Fave : Comfort Foods

This week’s list of Friday Five Fave is my favorite comfort foods. This was very hard to narrow down since I love to cook and eat, but here’s what I came up with.

  1. Chicken Pot Pie– There is nothing like a homemade chicken pot pie with a flaky crust.
  2. Roast and Potatoes– My mom always makes a meat and potatoes Sunday dinner and this is one of my favorites. I also like making it myself, an easy crockpot meal.
  3. Cheesecake– Oh, cheesecake, how I love thee! I will most likely choose cheesecake for a dessert if it’s offered (or sometimes have it for dinner). I have yet to make my own, but it’s on the to-do list.
  4. Homemade Bread– I have been making our own bread for about 2 years now and there’s nothing like that smell or taste. You can’t buy that at Target.
  5. Chocolate– Chocolate is a definite weakness for me. Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate and Caramel, Lindt Truffles are a few of my favorite ways to indulge and it has to be Milk Chocolate.

What are some of your favorite comfort foods?

  1. ice cream (newest favorite is Founders Favorite at Cold Stone: vanilla with chunks of brownie and swirls of chocolate fudge and caramel)
    Pie ala mode
    Warm caramel rolls
    Strawberry short cake

    That’s my top five (I think)


  2. I agree with you about the bread…there is nothing like the taste or smell of bread right out of the oven. When I was growing up, my dad would make bread on Sundays every so often. When the timer when off and he offered a piece of bread with butter on it, my brother, sister, and I would be so excited to have it. What a treat!


  3. nice list!

    I just started baking my own bread — oh to think of all those years I wasted on store-bought! (would love your recipe sometime….)

    and is it strange that my favorite foods are not my comfort foods? I absolutely love loaded veggie burritos and crave them often but that’s not what I crave when I need comforting. I crave lasagna.

    I’m odd like that. well, let’s say I’m complex like that 😉
