Happy Days Are Here Again!

For as long as humans have been on earth, food has been a source of comfort. Some psychologists say that the most basic thing people seek is not money, sex, or thin thighs—it's comfort—and everybody has a favorite comfort food. Once again, the comfort and joy that certain special foods bring to us are recaptured in this refreshing cookbook, Comfort Foods.

Remember when life was simple, and Sunday dinner meant meatloaf, mashed potatoes, homemade biscuits with gravy, and apple pie? Well, you can't go back in time, but you can still prepare the classic dishes everybody loves. Comfort Foods is a collection of more than 200 foolproof recipes that are sure to soothe souls, warm hearts, and melt the ice, including:

Buttermilk Biscuits Crab Cakes New England Clam Chowder Lasagna Pecan Pie

Organized in an easy-to-use format, this book will delight anyone who enjoys to eat and to serve good, wholesome food.

Synopsis:

Who cares if it isn't good for you? This is food that makes you feel good! From Chicken with Pan Gravy to Beef Stroganoff with Buttered Noodles, Chocolate Cream Pie to Caramel Pecan Turtles — these are the special treats that say you've come home at last.
