What is the easiest and best tasting comfort food recipe you have ever cooked?

Published by at 4:03 am under Comfort Food

I am looking for some heart warming dinner recipes for winter and I am just beginning to cook any suggestions?

My children say it is my Potato Soup that I make for them when they don't feel well…and they are all grown and still want Momma to make it for them…

Now if you are talking seasonal 'comfort' food then here are some suggestions:
Stews
Chowders

Chili
Red beans and Rice
Pot Roast with roasted potatoes and carrots
Chicken and dumplings
Chicken and dressing

    Chicken and Dumplings. This is the BEST recipe I've ever eaten!

    1 whole boneless chicken
    2 quarts water
    3 tablespoons chicken bouillon, soup base (or six boullion cubes)
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    3 cups self-rising flour

    *Usea large pot with a heavy lid.
    Place chicken, water, boullion, and pepper together in pot.
    Cook, covered for 1 hour.
    (After cooking, I let contents remain in covered pot for about an hour to cool).
    As soon as chicken is done cooking, remove 1 cup of cooking liquid from pan and allow to cool so that it is about room temp.
    In a bowl mix self-rising flour and the 1 cup cooled broth.
    You may need to add a little more flour if mixture is too stickey.
    On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness (I divide dough into 1/3's to roll out, it's easier to do smaller amount) Cut rolled dough into 1 inch strips, then cut strips into 3 inch pieces.
    Remove chicken from pot.
    Heat broth in pot to a boil.
    Drop dumplings into boiling broth! Lower heat so they are just simmering. Cook for 20 minutes and DO NOT open lid to peak!!!
    While dumplings are cooking, debone chicken into bite size pieces.
    After dumplings have cooked for 20 minutes, add chicken back to pot. Simmer for 5-10 minutes
    and serve.

    Zuppa Tuscana Soup
    Black Bean Soup (just like Panera Bread's!)
    Chicken and Noodles
    Spaghetti Pie
    Homemade Mac N' Cheese

    I'm a big soup and pasta person as you can probably tell=]

    But if you want meat, just look up recipes for chicken, beef, fish, etc. you can find some good ones.

    Fried Cheerios

    2 Tbsp butter melted in a skillet
    2 Cups Cheerios sauted in butter
    Salt to taste

    The oats in the Cheerios helps to negate the bad fats in the butter!

    As far as comfort food it's Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup with rice added. As for simple, try Hamburger Helper. You can't go wrong with Hamburger Helper just follow the directions and it's a piece of cake.

    I love chicken pot pie!!! It is so easy to make!! You get a
    can of cream of chix
    can of cream of potato
    can of chix (or you can cook up some chicken and chop into chunks)
    can of veg all
    pie crust

    I get the pillsbury one with the two rolled crusts. Mix the soup mix, chix, veg all, and a 1/4 cup of milk into a bowl…add pepper, salt and seasoning salt. Use a pie pan and put the first shell in bottom, add the mix of the soup, veggies and then put on top crust. Poke a couple of holes in it. Cook on 425 for 30 minutes! So freakin good! I love makin on sundays when all my family is at home. I serve with salad.

    Beef stew, Pot roast, Red Beans with a good Beef sausage. To help you along until you feel comfortable, use the Season and cooking bags. Also get a crock pot.

    One of my winter standards is bacon-roasted squash – it's sweet and fatty and absolutely delicious. You can check out the recipe here: http://www.debonairmag.com/recipe_-_bacon_roasted_butternut_squash.htm

    All you need is a butternut squash and some bacon – you just cut the squash in two, lay the bacon on and roast it in a 400 degree oven until it's tender. Sometimes it's a good idea to smear the bacon fat on any exposed pieces of the squash so it doesn't dry out – but the fat should just melt into the squash and make it taste smokey and richer than ever!

    You can slice it up and use it in a green salad with some toasted walnuts or pecans, or what I usually do with the leftovers is throw it all into a pot with some vegetable stock and puree it into soup. Then, I crumble the cooked bacon in and crack lots of fresh pepper on top.

    So easy to do, super cheap, and simple to adapt into lots of different recipes – this one is a winner for sure.
