Comfort Foods

Comfort foods are our friends. We eat them when we need an emotional boost because they make us feel good.

My favorites are fried chicken, beef stew, steak, grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup. Nothing too fancy and pretty common comfort foods.

The simple nature is often common theme among comfort foods. They are often things that we ate as a child, and eating them as an adult takes us back to those happy times in our life. Other than steak, that's true of my comfort foods.

Another common theme among comfort foods is that they are easy to make. I can make all of my comfort foods, and so could my culinary indifferent mother. I think the simplistic nature of these foods is what makes them so beloved to us.

What are your comfort foods? I'd like to hear.
