winter comfort foods. Just the thought of it makes me feel warm and welcoming, like snuggling up by the fire on a rainy day. What exactly is comfort food? It is usually food that we have fond memories of and that reminds us of a simpler time; whether you grew up in Australia or little old North Carolina, there is always a meal that conjures up feelings of joy and safety, childhood memories, or just simple pleasure.
These are my top 9 winter comfort food recipes.
