Its all about the comfort

2/13/2008

Comfort food that is. As of yesterday this area of Wisconsin (Madison area) hit an all time record of snow for the winter season we are currently at 79 inches and have still another month (at least) to go. We are sick of being holed up in the house I know many families are feeling cabin fever, we fight it by comfort food. I have made so much chocolate chip pumpkin bread this season its ridiculous. But you know what? It keeps me and Leila sane (Ken doesnt like pumpkin) and that is all that matters.




Here are my three favorite recipes as of late:

Chocolate Pumpkin Bread
Tip: I use a cup of soy that I puree instead of the eggs (makes it even more moist, found the subsitution via a vegan cooking site, seriously how did people cook before the internet?!?!?!) and go half and half with the white and wheat flour.

Creamy Rice Pudding
Tip: I cut out the 1/2 cup of the milk at the end and use water instead. I also dont use the raisins more because I dont have them in the house rather than I dont want to.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese
Tip: this one is very step organized its not a fast easy whip up but it is OH SO GOOD if you have the time to make it!

Ugh. We are in Wauwatosa and I am so sick of this dang snow and cold. Plus, I'm trying to lose weight so comfort food is, well, not so comforting right now! I have a different recipe for pumpkin bread that turned out great. I didn't think I liked pumpkin before this recipe!
