Comfort food

Just mention the words "comfort food" within a small group of women and you will be inundated with a variety of non-heart healthy, cholesterol laden tasty treats. What is it about comfort food that just catapults us somewhere else? Whether it takes us back to our childhood or to a restaurant down some back alley, those special food items can cure us of "whatever" on any given day.

For some it may be meatloaf and real mashed potatoes, homemade chicken soup, deep-dish lasagna or maybe even a tuna casserole. In any case it brings us to a peaceful place where indulgence is OK!

What is your favorite comfort food?
