Hi.

Coffee is my daily tops the list favorite, though a beverage and not a "food" it ranks mention for me. Life without coffee is no life at all :D

My favorite comfort foods are potatoes, pasta, and home made soups ... oh, bread slathered in butter. Am loving the added tastes of sauerkraut and paprika in soups lately. YUM

I LOVE mac and cheese ... but avoid cheese a lot these days, especially X-tra aged which I love most. For some reason I seem to have some intolerance to cheese/dairy stuff now plus I often notice after eating cheese that I flare. I just have to have some sometimes though and flares and other stuff be damned :D

Chicken and dumplings. The only time my wife goes for seconds is when I whip up a mess of chicken and dumplings.

Do you have a recipe for those dumplings??? I love dumplings too and rarely think about them when making soups or anything, but my Mom used to make them often. They are so filling and definately on my "comfort foods" list. They're so easy to make too, aren't they? Maybe if I have a good recipe I'll makle them often.

Nothing wrote down, I use my mothers recipe and I guess as recipies go it isn't anything special. Of course I use chicken stock but instead of stewing the chicken I roast it, cool it, then debone it. I find it tastes better and I don't have as much residual fat to worry about. For the dumplings I use a basic biscuit recipie...lard and just a hint of real butter, 1/2 portions of cake and GP flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt. When I'm cutting in the lard and butter I toss in a few shakes of dried parsley for color. Roll out the dough to about 3/8-1/2 inch ( I like my dumpling plump).

Bring the chicken stock to a boil, toss in the boned and cut up chicken* to warm through. After about ten minutes bring the pot to a simmer, add thickener ( I use corn starch)...when thickened add dumplings, cover pot and 'steam' the dumplings for just 10 more minutes or so. Like I said, I like my dumplings plump and biscuity, if you let them sit too long they'll collapse and melt away.

*I cut up the thighs and one breast, I shred the meat of the second breast and drumsticks and just toss the chuncks of wing meat in as is.

Hmm. Sushi, Chicken Pad Thai, chicken fried steak and mashed ptoatoes, pot roast and yorkshire pudding, apple pie with less sweet and more tart/cinamon flavors, and hash-browns or corned beef hash with eggs over easy mashed up into them.

Suddenly, this stupid salad doesn't seem very appetizing.
