OK, friends and neighbors, Fall is here. With cooler temperatures comes the desire once again to cook, to bake, to crock pot, to fill the house with the glorious aromas of hot and hearty comfort food.
And I need your help. We would probably all benefit from each others' help here. Our families would want us to do this.
Let's do it. Let's post our very best comfort food recipes. Send me the link(s) to the recipe(s) you've posted, along with a brief description of each and I will publish them all here, in one massive post that will provide us all with enough good ideas to carry us through until Spring. If you have found wonderful recipes on other sites and would like to link to those, fine. But please make sure you have tried it yourself first to know that it works and is worthy of the list.
Simplicity is to be desired over complexity. Easily found ingredients are a must, as I live out in the sticks. Quantity of recipes is secondary to quality. I want the recipes that had your families rising up and calling you blessed, the ones that left them begging for more, the ones that caused them to clean their plates or bowls so completely that you nearly mistook the stack of them for clean dishes that were ready to be put away.
To kick-start this comfort food fest, I will post a link here to a darn tasty recipe that I found and made for my family tonight. It meets the above criterion, believe me. I could post the recipe here, but the link will serve you better, as the author of the blog on which I found it is witty and clever and an outstanding photographer. Here, dear readers, I present my first offering: Crash Hot Potatoes, a very simple but OH-SO-TASTY way to prepare little red potatoes. They will definitely dress up an otherwise plain meal, or turn a very good meal into a spectacular one. Try them. Immediately. You won't regret it.
You have a little over two weeks, people. I will post the collection on October 1st.
