Top 10 Comfort Foods

Just a lazy Saturday morning over here…


All three of us have enjoyed a little extra lounging this morning, with no alarms to wake up to, and no immediate commitments to run off to. Not that Cody ever has to worry about that anyway. Lucky dog cat.


The little bugger has not moved out of the sun all morning long. He cracks me right up.



I was having quite a tough time deciding between sweet and savory this morning, but sweet eventually won me over once I remembered that there are still waffles in the freezer.


I toasted up two Kashi 7 Grain Waffles and topped them with a serving of homemade honey cinnamon PB, banana slices, and some sugar-free syrup.


They were absolutely perfect.


While I was eating my yummy waffles, I spent some time skimming through the latest issue of Cooking Light magazine.


At the beginning of the issue, there was a mention about your Top 10 Comfort Foods, which got me thinking a bit about my own top 10. Thinking of ten was actually quite a bit of a challenge, but here’s what I came up with…

  1. A big bowl of pasta with Mom’s (or grandma’s) homemade sauce and meatballs.
  2. Mom’s special chicken parm and homemade bread
  3. Double layer funfetti cake with homemade almond buttercream frosting
  4. Mom’s Christmas lasagna
  5. My mother-in-law’s homemade pumpkin bread
  6. Mal’s chili in a bread bowl
  7. Dad’s Sunday morning pancakes and waffles
  8. Warm, just out of the oven, chocolate chip cookies
  9. Classic cheeseburger and sweet potato fries
  10. Warm brownie sundae with cookie dough ice cream and caramel sauce. OMG.

What would some of your Top 10 Comfort Foods be?

    Being from Chicago, my number one comfort food is definitely deep dish pizza!! I get it with extra sauce so that it somewhat “overtakes” the cheese, since the sauce is my favorite part. The crust is also top-notch…I have been known to eat only the crust off of several pieces of pizza. This doesn’t annoy my family at all.

    Chicken noodle soup, grilled cheese and pickles, pancakes it french toast, chili, fresh homemade bread, banana bread anf chocolate chip cookies that are still warm!

    Cody is super cool :)

    Ahhh, comfort foods. Ice cream would definitely be on my list along with, roasted sweet potatoes, chocolate chips cookies, grilled cheese sandwiches, and warm cinnamon rolls.

    My dad’s homemade mac & cheese! Nothing screams comfort food like using a whole block of Cabot extra sharp cheese :p

    Mac and cheese … waffles … grilled cheese … I think if I really thought about it, there would be a lot!

    Cody has such a life! I always joke that I want to come back in another life as someone’s pet. My parent’s dog lounges in the sun too. I’d like to wake up and only have that on my schedule for the day 😉 hahaha

      I think I’d also have to agree with you on the chocolate pb pie and the Dinosaur BBQ. Now I’m hungry again.

    Love your top 10 list! Everything sounds wonderful! Your cat is cute! I don’t blame him for staying in the sun. Your waffles look yummy!!! Your opinion, what waffles do you like better? Kashi or Vans? My friend swears by Vans but I never had them, but I have had Kashi like them. What do you think? Enjoy your relaxing weekend!!
