What comes to mind when you think of your favorite foods? If you're like me, those thoughts are of "comfort" food and good old-fashioned southern cooking. The foods that make you happy when you're sad...take the "ick" away when you feel sick. Everyone has their own special favorites that take you back with memories of delicious food made with love. Comfort food can be anything from a quick bite to a lavish dessert. The common denominator seems to be something made with love. This book is is dedicated to my grandmother & my gift of comfort to y'all. It contains a lot of the family favorites we all enjoy. Some of the recipes came straight from the kitchen of my granny, Merle Walker. The rest of them are either adaptations of her recipes or new comfort favorites. You'll notice that the dessert entries far outweigh the other recipes. That's because my granny really loved to bake and had a little sweet tooth. Plus, nothing gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling like something decadently sweet.
So I hope these recipes bring you as much comfort as they've been bringing me and my family for years. From my kitchen to yours with love!
