Favorite Comfort Foods and Why (and Recipes)

For this week's Weekly Blogging Challenge we're looking at Favorite Comfort Foods and Why (and Recipes). So, just off the top of my head:


Technically a drink rather than a food, but still: all good things start and end with tea. I take mine with milk and honey, or occasionally with whiskey instead of milk. I'm always open to trying new flavors, though I generally favor black teas.

Long John Silver's fish: usually (oddly) when my stomach's feeling a bit upset. I don't know why it would help -- it's pure grease -- but it does. I'll go months between visits, but when the mood strikes, there I am.

Macaroni and cheese, just the cheap Kraft boxed kind: again, when my stomach's upset or I just want something easy to digest.

Scrambled Eggs with Things Mixed In: Partly, this is because I only recently got the hang of making a proper omelette, but this also has some memories of camping associated with it. And you can mix all sorts of things into scrambled eggs with good results: bacon, sausage, hamburger, diced vegetables, cheese... It's quick, it's tasty, and it's filling.

There are plenty of foods that I love, but those are the ones I'd consider comfort foods.


  1. Scrambled eggs with things mixed in is one of my favorite comfort meals, too. It's something I make every week or so when I can't figure out what to have for dinner. It's nice and inexpensive, too, which is always a plus.

    What is your favourite type of tea?

    My post

    1. Twining's Irish Breakfast is probably my overall favorite, but I drink a lot of the English Breakfast Tea and Cinammon tea as well. I had fun experimenting with the Teas of the Raksura (and man, there's a book series I felt right at home in - they drink tea all the time) but most of my tea is off-the-shelf.

  2. I am trying to learn to drink tea rather than coffee all of the time. I like Earl Grey.
    Scrambled eggs with oysters is a personal favorite. My mother used to make scrambled eggs with cod roe.

    1. I would love to try either version of scrambled eggs. I'm weird about textures, but mixing those elements with scrambled eggs might actually make them work for me.

  3. I think scrambled eggs with things mixed in is one of my favorites because it's usually a meal I can come up with when my brain is tired. I always say my brain's tired when I have been cooking a lot and thinking up various meals each day. Plus...with scrambled eggs, I can use up any leftover veggies I might have or lots of things...voila, scrambled eggs with things mixed in. Good post

  4. I love scrambled eggs, but they always come out runny when I do them. I need to figure out a decent recipe.
