comforting...

Nothing beats a good baked rice pudding.

It not only warms the belly, but it brings back fond memories
of the wonderful aroma as it baked in my mother's kitchen.

For a good recipe, try Paula Deen's.....just click here.

What is your favorite comfort food? I would love to hear about it!!


~~My family would like to sincerely thank all of you who left heartfelt words for Jordan's birthday post. Your comments are all very comforting to us.....thank you......~~

I'm not sure that cookies qualify as "food", but my favorite is homemade (my mom's recipe) Chocolate Chip Cookies. Since my mom is gone, it's nice to make cookies and remember the memories of us baking together.

Rice pudding is quite comforting but my favorite comfort foods are baked pototoes with lots of real butter and, of course, chocolate!

Oh man, I want some of that and our oven is broke! Chocolate chip cookies would be comforting, but they have to be warm. Actually anything sweet and creamy and good like that is comfort food to me. I try not to comfort myself too often though! lol

Claudia said...

A baked potato or mashed potatoes - both are comfort foods to me!

Forced to eat lumpy runny pudding at school it spoilt me for any and I cant bring myself to try it now, when my mum used to cook it I had to leave the room before she took it out of the oven! Hope that didnt sound rude yours is lovely I am sure. I have your recipe for the peach cake you did a while ago on my desk and waiting for the chance to try it, only problem I have is finding good peaches the ones you get here look lovely but are hard as bullets and go off before they go ripe! Could you make it with tinned peaches or is it not the same? My favourite comfort food is shepherds pie, carrots and gravy, lovely on a winter evening good british stodge. Jane xxx glad you like the necklaces if there are any left I will put them in my etsy shop next week.

Connie said...

My comfort food is homemade Mac & Cheese. Also any soup.

Lallee said...

Any Paula Deen recipe has to be good! We didn't have rice pudding when I was growing up, but tapioca was served frequently. That would be my idea of comfort food, or anything else with sugar as an ingredient ;-) Bread pudding comes to mind. Dangerous thoughts I'm having now!

The rice pudding looks delicious.

I'm easy though - my favorite comfort food is popcorn with lots of butter shared with Scotties.

Hi Becky, I know it's been quite awhile but something nudged me today to pop in here and say hello, how are you? :> Rice pudding is definitely comfort food. One of my faves? Homemade chicken & dumpling soup w/ buttermilk biscuits, mmmmm....

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

My favorite comfort food? I would have to say potatoes. Anyway they're served. In a casserole, baked, mashed, soup, chips :-) I'd have trouble giving up potatoes, that's for sure. This looks great though.
Blessings,
Marcia

I absolutely love homemade rice pudding. As a child my mum always used to make it when we had a glut of milk! My favourite comfort food is bangers and mash with a good helping of baked beans!
Enjoy your weekend.

Janet said...

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese...yummmmm

Vintage Linen Treasures said...

Yum! I haven't had rice pudding in AGES!! It would be easier to ask what's NOT a comfort food for me, but for today, I think bread pudding with raisins and carmels sauce would do just fine.
Patricia ;o)

addie373 said...

Mmmm! that looks so good!
Comfort foods hmmm let's see, the list is long. But one I love yet rarely make anymore, because it's so fattening is pan fried potatoes. My mother made them often.
Fried in a black iron skillet, Yummy!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Oh the rice pudding looks so good. My Daddy always made the rice pudding when we were kids. Sadly I never got the recipe from him. I will have to try Paula's recipe!

My favorite comfort foods are beef stew and chocolate cake.
