Favorite Comfort Foods

How’s the weather where you live?

It definitely feels like fall here in Pennsylvania. For the past few days, the temperature has been consistently hovering between 55* and 65*.

While I definitely prefer the warmer, sunnier months, there is something comforting about curling up on the couch (in sweats!) with a warm bowl of something tasty.

In an effort to remind myself (and all of you, my wonderful readers) of some favorite comfort food recipes, I’ve created a quick round-up!

A breakfast option…

French Toast Casserole

I love this recipe because you prep everything at night. All that’s left to do in the morning is bake, and in a few minutes you’ve got a hot breakfast!

Dinner options…

Sweet Potato Soup

This is a recipe I created on my own last fall. If you’re a sweet potato fan (who isn’t?) this meal is highly recommend! Added bonus: it’s made in the crockpot.

Tuscan Chili

Yet another crockpot meal! I haven’t made this since the winter, but I’ve got some chicken sausage in the freezer, so I’m thinking it might show up on our meal plan for next week.

Baked Potato Soup

I’ve talked about this recipe several times already; just try it!

Baked Penne

The addition of Philadelphia Cooking Creme makes this dish super creamy and cheesy, which is extra-perfect on a cold fall/winter evening. This recipe makes a pretty hearty portion, so there’s sure to be leftovers.

Chicken-Bacon Mac and Cheese

When I think “comfort food” macaroni and cheese immediately comes to mind. This chicken-bacon version is a little heartier than plain old noodles and cheese, and it’s definitely decadent!

A dessert option…

Apple Cake

I’ve seen lots of apple orchard visits pop up on quite a few blogs lately. If you’re wondering what to do with an abundance of everyone’s favorite fall fruit, I suggest throwing a few into this cake recipe!

    I consider most of mine ‘comfort foods’ only because my mom makes them: homemade salsa, chicken and dumplings, macaroni salad, wacky cake, waldorf salad, lemon cookies, fudge, apple pie.

    But now that I am 3,000 miles from home…it’s homemade chocolate chip cookies, chili, omeletes, pancakes, and whenever I can convince someone to send me ANYTHING from Trader Joe’s :)
