Now that fall has finally hit the Valley (hey it’s under 100°, break out the sweaters!), I like to think about all my favorite comfort foods. The ones that are topping my list this fall would be:
Macaroni ‘n’ cheese, preferably with turkey dogs sliced into it or baked into ramekins so everyone can have a taste.
Cheese in general. Gouda mashed potatoes, goat cheese and fudge, extra sharp-wrapped hot dogs. You name it, I will find a way to make it better with cheese.
Truffles. I love the ones that melt instantly and are dusted with bitter cocoa powder. What a weakness they are. I want to learn to make my own, but I’m perplexed on how people make them so perfectly spherical.
S’mores. I love that this is an all-weather treat. Tasty over a campfire during sweet summer bbqs, perfectly for snuggling close and sharing a gooey one in winter.
Hot chocolate. I love the non-milk alternatives. Heck, I’m even happy with a little pre-packaged Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Sensation! Just add water and it’s done! Easy to please, I am.
Burgers. Specifically, The Beau’s burgers. They are so perfectly grilled it’s like the Grill Angel reached down and blessed him with crazy chef skills! I love all his recipes, but whenever he offers to make burgers, I am sold.
What is your favorite comfort food?
