Just for Fun: Comfort Food Friday


Chocolate chip cookies, homemade of course, and an icy cold glass of milk. I make these for myself when I've had a tough week. And they're still considered "homemade" even if it's only because they are, in fact, baked in my home, right? Don't tell my foodie friends, but I keep a tube of ready-to-bake Pillsbury cookie dough in my fridge. Almost all the time. Because when I need a chocolate chip cookie, I need it NOW. There's no time to measure and mix or, God forbid, run to the market for a missing ingredient. And besides, this is my comfort food, not Martha's, and they definitely do the trick! What kind of cookie comforts you?

These "Comfort Food Friday" posts will appear occasionally, on a Friday (of course), and are meant to be a fun departure from so much "serious" designer talk. And, after all, with a blog name like "Comfort and Luxury", how could I not talk about one of the best things that brings us all the cozy, cared-for feelings of comfort and love: food. Sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy, just like mom used to make it or found only in a hometown restaurant, we all have our favorite comfort foods. Some that we enjoy regularly, others that are 'special occasion only' treats. Please don't misunderstand though. There will be no recipes shared here. No cooking techniques exchanged. Just images and memories and all the warm, fuzzy feelings that comfort foods evoke. A nice way to end a busy work week, don't you think?
