The best comfort food recipes for Dec. 1 through Dec. 7 remind me of why I originally wanted to be called the "Comfort Food Examiner" for Boise. They include an easy baked mac and cheese, turkey pot pie, a hot turkey sandwich, a three cheese souffle and hobo stew in the Dutch oven.

According to Wikipedia, comfort food is
traditionally eaten food (which often provides a nostalgic or sentimental feeling to the person eating it),or simply provides the consumer an easy-to-digest meal, soft in consistency, and rich in calories, nutrients, or both.The nostalgic element most comfort food has, may be specific to either the individual or a specific culture.Many comfort foods are flavorful; some may also be easily prepared.
These foods, especially the baked mac and cheese and the hobo stew make me nostalgic. But whether they make you nostalgic or not, they're a great addition to your fall cookbook ideas.
