As the seasons change, so too does our definition of comfort food. Winter’s warming stews are replaced by crisp, crunchy salads and cool creamy desserts when summer comes – although sometimes there is nothing like a spicy curry to cool you down on a summer’s evening (honestly, it works!). And of course, I’d never turn down that classic comfort food mashed potatoes – you can always cook the roast on a spit over the barbecue in the hot weather. Whatever the season, we always turn to the kitchen not only for sustenance, but also for celebration. In short, there is always a need for homemade food, food from the hearth, food that feeds your soul – whatever the season might be.
Once again, there were some really wonderful recipes last week. A few that caught my eye were:
Chicken Minestrone Skillet from Easy to Be Gluten Free
Gluten Free Cream Filled Doughnuts from Sugar and Spice in the Land of Balls and Sticks
Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting from Lamp Unto My Feet and
Black Bean Veggie Burgers from Hun What’s For Dinner
Please join us and share your favourite family recipes and the stories behind them. No matter who we are or where we come from, our food history brings us together as we share our own traditions and learn about those of others. That is a big part of what Hearth and Soul is all about.
