Poll of the Week - 7.20.2009

Starting today, here’s the first “Poll of the Week” - I’ll post a new poll every Monday morning, so check back often!

What is your favorite comfort food? If your favorite’s not listed, I’d love to hear what it is - tell me why you like it!

  1. Actually my favorite comfort food isn't on the list -- it would be a toss up between cottage cheese and chocolate.

  2. Isn't chocolate consider as a comfort food? I would have for that.

  3. Mine is semolina pudding (with raisins!). Hot with a bar of chocolate in the middle or cold with raspberry sauce on top.
    This used to be something I made quite often with my dad when I was a little child. I still especially enjoy it hot on a cold winter's night (with a chocolate bar! Without it's just not the same *g*). :)

  4. Not surprised that mac and cheese tops the list. Nothing like it!

  5. My favorite comfort food is a pasta dish that I make with sausage and mascarpone cheese sauce. I could eat it all day!

  6. When I lived in Korea, my inlaws mailed me a bunch of boxes of Mac and Cheese. Yum!

  7. @chocolate lovers: when i think of "comfort foods", i think about foods your mom would make for you, foods that take you back to childhood and are... comforting. i know a lot of people turn to chocolate when they're stressed, but i don't know very many mothers who make their own chocolate! maybe i'll include it in a future poll, though, so check back every monday :)

  10. I chose pie but another comfort food for me is cheesy mashed potatoes with baked beans! And congee as well but I don't make that alot.

  11. Mashed potatoes for me. Recently (I wish I could remember where) I read a tip to boil whole garlic cloves with the potatoes. This softens them considerably and allows you to mash them in with the rest of the ingredients. Took a little experimenting with the right amount of cloves (you need more than you would think) but the flavor is simply amazing!

  12. @Austin Epicurean: garlic mashed potatoes are soo good! this sounds like a great way to make them - what's your garlic-to-potato ratio?
