Good morning! How is your week going? Another busy one here. Winter has finally arrived and with it bitter cold temps and high winds. The kind of weather that makes you want to nest after a long day with some tasty comfort food.

Here are a few of my favorite comfort foods that you might want to try. I have included a little of everything, soup, bread, appetizers, sandwiches and of course some chocolate!

Baked Camembert Cheese from Jamie Oliver

Pull Apart Garlic Bread from Gather for Bread

Spicy Black Bean Soup from Little Spice Jar

What are your favorite comfort foods. cheese, pasta, sandwiches, meat and potatoes, or a casserole perhaps?  Share your favorite comfort food and maybe even a recipe if you have it handy!

Brace yourself for the bone chilling cold and the big snow coming barreling down on the East Coast!

Take care and have a great day!


  1. There was a time when I could eat that ENTIRE pull-apart bread in one sitting! I don't think I could do that now but it sure looks GREAT! Excellent foods to fight off the chill and is it ever cold here now! January always thinks she can trick us with her warm start, but then she kicks us in the teeth on her way out! KEEP WARM!

  2. OMG!!!! Is it wrong to crave lobster mac and cheese topped off with fudgey brownie at only 7am? YES that is what I want....breakfast doesn't' sound so enticing anymore:)

  3. Yum!!! It is SO cold here but any of these would warm me right up! I will be thinking of you tomorrow during the storm... Hope it misses you. We were supposed to go to DC this weekend to see Caroline but, unfortunately, had to cancel. Stay warm and safe...xoxoxo

  4. Don't those all look amazing! I love cheese, dark chocolate, an assortment of peppers and olives, and homemade white bread, fresh from the oven. I made it today and it's going with our chili tonight. Yum!! Stay warm and cozy during your big snow. xo
