The best comfort food recipes for any situation - 18 recipes

The great thing about comfort food is that the recipe is different for everyone. Recipes vary from family to family, but generally encompass something warm, creamy and filling. For me, comfort food has to be spicy, and preferably with lots of cheese and carbs! For some people it's macaroni and cheese, for others it’s chicken pot pie with mashed potatoes. Comfort food reminds us of our parents, our grandparents, our childhood, our home. It's the food that your mother made you when you were sick, or the birthday cake that you requested every year without fail. My ultimate comfort foods are pasta with zucchini and chicken curry with rice and yogurt. No matter what your favorite recipe for comfort food is, our recipes will give you ideas to create new family comfort food traditions!

Chef Tips and Tricks

VIDEO: Chocolate Strawberry Braid

All you need is 3 main ingredients to make this Chocolate Strawberry Braid for dessert tonight!

Ingredients

  • 7-9 medium-sized strawberries
  • 1 puff pastry
  • 1 chocolate bar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Almond slivers
  • Powdered sugar

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the strawberries into halves.
  3. Dust some flour on a flat surface and spread your puff pastry out on top, smoothing it into a rectangle shape if necessary.
  4. Place the bar of chocolate in the center, then top with a layer of strawberry halves.
  5. Using a pizza cutter or a knife, slice the edges of the puff pastry into strips that can be wrapped over the chocolate and strawberries. Starting with the flap at the top, fold over each strip in a slightly diagonal direction so that they resemble a braid.
  6. Brush the braid with a beaten egg yolk so that it covers the entire visible surface.
  7. Sprinkle almond slivers on top.
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes.
  9. Give the braid a few minutes to cool down, then cover with a dusting of powdered sugar.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
