In the Winter time no matter what the weather, we all enjoy some comfort. So many foods make me feel comforted, whether for the memories associated or the flavors they provide, here are my favorite comforting foods. What are yours?
I often make this Individual Baked Challah French Toast (pictured above) family style in my beautiful blue oven to table Emile Henry casserole dish. I am just jonesing for a brunch party so I can bake this baby up.
For a fancier version of sweet challah goodness try my Dressed Up Apple Challah Kugel Tower with Apricot Honey, page 95 in my new book JOY of KOSHER Fast, Fresh Family Recipes.
Warm the tummy, warm the soul. I now live in a house of stone and in the winter there's a chill that's hard to shake without my space heater, some fuzzy slippers and some real goooood soup. This Italian Vegetable Soup + Cheese Bread is ready in minutes.
And when some serious comfort is in order I simmer a pot of Poppy's Potato and Sour Cream Soup - and Dress It Up with a spice rub around the rim of individual mugs. Get the recipe on page 73 of my new book JOY of KOSHER Fast, Fresh Family Recipes.
Sometimes you just want a bite of a burger in a bun. My Dressed Down Unloaded Burger is good enough to speak for itself on page 207 of my new book JOY of KOSHER Fast, Fresh Family Recipes.
For something with a little more bling this BBQ Beef Burger with Quick Pickles will spice things up.
And if it's a winter one pot meal you are after my Chicken Pot Pie with Herbed Drop Biscuits is a family wonder of wonders.
Same goes for my "Buttery" Crusted Beef Pot Pie on page 220 of my new book JOY of KOSHER Fast, Fresh Family Recipes - requires not much more than a spoon to scoop and serve and satiate, family style.
Stay warm, stay safe, stay cozy. Cook and oh... buy the book ! :-)
