What makes comfort food comforting?
The mere mention of comfort food conjures a different sensory experience for us all; yet no matter what savory dish comes to mind first and foremost, we all imagine a warm, cozy kitchen and the anticipation of a soothing, homemade delight made with loving care.
In a time when our lives are harried and stressed and the news can be downright depressing, spending time preparing a favorite comfort dish is a kind of healing.
Whether cooking or baking for yourself or for friends or family, the end result of comfort food speaks of thoughtfulness.
