This time of year, life moves at lightning speed. It seems to be the nature of the season- a gradually revving up, building, towards the holidays. Days become shorter, colder and our appetites change as well. We start to crave cozy, heartier, meatier, comfort food recipes, warming to both body and soul.
If you’ve been on the blog a while, you’ll know that most of the recipes you’ll find here tend to be on the lighter, healthier side (like these Vegetarian Recipes for Fall). But I don’t judge or label food as good or bad. These recipes are more of the “stick-to-your-bones” type. Rich, decadent and meaty. And while I don’t cook this way every day, there is a place for them, especially when shared around the table.
Comfort food, in moderation, can be incredibly nourishing on the soul level. Not just the eating of it, but particularly in the act of making it. Making comfort food can be really comforting if we allow it – the perfect way to spend a slow and lazy Sunday.
Sharing it with others feels especially good too. Many of these comfort food recipes can be made ahead– perfect for fall gatherings or the holiday table. Here are a few of my favorite comfort food recipes for fall and winter. Hope you enjoy!
