Comfort foods are foods that make you feel good, secure, loved and happy.  They are not always the foods you enjoyed as a child but a lot of them are.  Some of my favorite comfort foods are foods my Mom made for me as a child.  These include: tuna casserole, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato pie, stuffing, and candied yams.  I also have to include something my Dad made for me as a child: chocolate chip cookies!

Many of my son’s comfort foods are foods I made for him: chocolate chip cookies (both baked and raw – as in cookie dough), brownies, cake, tuna salad with eggs, chicken adobo, tuna casserole, and macaroni and cheese.

See the similarities?  Some these things were passed right down the line.  By the way, you can see my Mom’s mac and cheese recipe here.
