Comfort food: The perfect recipe to end a great weekend


Comfort food takes on many different forms.  Chicken noodle soup, grilled cheese & tomato soup, soft-boiled eggs and toast soldiers, stew, macaroni & cheese.  These are things that typically come to mind.  My favourite comfort food is a recipe that my mom makes,  a warm yummy mix that never fails to make me feel good.  I’m sure it has a name somewhere, but heck if I know what it is.
