Okay, the recipe for gnocchi macaroni and cheese comes with a saga, and for once it does not involve me. Nope, it involves my sweet little sister, and it has a happy ending, but just let me say that if there was ever a saga that was calling out for Extreme Comfort Food it’s this one. And this gnocchi macaroni and cheese is comfort food to the MAX. Soft pillows of gnocchi nestled in cheddar cheese, and preferably served up in your very favorite bowl. Ready to both hear more about the saga and the gnocchi? Let’s make it!
I do love me some chicken and dumplings in all kinds of ways – the classic version, the soup version – you name it, if it has “chicken” and “dumpling” in the title I am THERE.

Ready to get this comfort food favorite on the table lightning-fast? Let’s make it!

Ready for your new favorite pot pie? Let’s make it!
What on earth is chicken bog, you ask? I know you are thinking that, and so was I one day when I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and my friend Kiera had written on her page that she was making her all-time favorite comfort food. Chicken bog. It took me about 3 seconds to email her and say hey, what on earth is chicken bog, Kiera? And as it turns out, chicken bog is a conglomeration of rice and sausage and shredded chicken and onion, and once you make chicken bog for yourself everything will be right with your world. Which just goes to show you that scrolling through Facebook is an important activity in life, because if I hadn’t been scrolling through Facebook I might have lived my whole life without having known about chicken bog.
And to celebrate the face that this all happened, I’m going to give away a few sets of the most beautiful books I know, but first…chicken bog. Let’s make it!
This rosemary chicken soup is one of my best comfort food recipes. It’s a warm and wonderful conglomeration of tender chicken and vegetables simmered up with the nutty taste of barley, and infused with one of my favorite herbs, aromatic rosemary. It’s perfection on a chilly winter day, when you are snuggled under your favorite blanket on the sofa, holding a warm mug of soup in your hands with a fire crackling in the fireplace and your favorite movie about to begin. It’s chicken soup wonderfulness at its most wonderful. Let’s make it!
