Okay, so maybe I wouldn’t throw a party and serve comfort food, or would I? Why not? In any case I’m sharing my favorite winter comfort food recipe with you today. I was motivated to do this, in part, because The Polohouse has made comfort food her “Favorites on the First” topic and since the weather here in the U.S., even in Southern California, is very cool what better time to prepare soul warming, calorie loaded comfort food. Consider it my way of forcing the inevitable must exercise more goal.
I confess, comfort food does just what it’s supposed to do to me when I eat it. I feel satisfied and comfortable, even relaxed. That might be caused by the over- abundance of calories in most of my favorite comfort foods, but either way, we don’t indulge that often and only when the NEED arises.
So, here you go. This is a winner for my family. It’s an Emeril Lagasse recipe, but my dear friend on Bainbridge Island, Linda, tested it out first. (Thank you, Linda) She is the person I give credit to for having tried and loved this recipe. Oh, and I have actually served this to guests at a dinner party. The individual baked pies provide great presentation.
In addition to the recipe, I’ve included some comfort inviting rooms for your viewing enjoyment.
