Comfort Food

How many of us have comfort foods? I've never thought that I would have my comfort food. However, I just realised that what I've baked today, is one of my comfort food, and will somehow craved for it. The definition of comfort food as defined by Wikipedia is:
"Comfort food refers to a variety of familiar, simple foods that are usually home-cooked or eaten at informal restaurants. Comfort food is typically inexpensive, uncomplicated, and easy to prepare. Many people turn to comfort food for familiarity, emotional security, or as a special reward. The reasons a dish becomes comfort food are diverse but often include pleasant associations of childhood. Small children often seem to latch on to a specific food or drink (in a way similar to a security blanket [PAB: sounds familiar??]) and will repeatedly request it in high stress situations. Adults eat comfort food for a sense of continuity."
Do you agree to this definition, or do you have your comfort food?


Today's bake was not really because I want to use up my red bean paste. Well, er...partly. But mostly because, I just love the taste of red bean with sesame seeds on my bread. It was just one simple recipe with five different designs, just for fun. Therefore, I can safely say that, Red Bean Buns are just one of my comfort food. Another comfort food that I can think of, had to be dark chocolates!



I made bacon & mushroom quiche for lunch yesterday. I like to use Rei's recipe for the crust now. It's really crispy & crusty. Can never go wrong with this crust!

Hi Carrie,
Thanks. Only looks. But whether it's nice or not, I've not tried it yet. Heehee...:)

I'm all about comfort foods. They're total pick-me-ups when you're feeling in need of a hug. I've never had a red bean bun, though, and you have me really wanting to try some!
