This review is from: From Our House to Yours: Comfort Food to Give and Share" (Paperback)
Over the course of the past few months I have had many friends in need of some comfort cooking--because of new babies, illnesses, work stresses, and other major life changes. Instead of a card, what these people need the most is some good food that they don't have to cook for themselves. This cookbook has updated classics, like polenta lasagne or stuffed peppers a la Michael Chiarello, old stand bys like chicken noodle soup and oatmeal cookies, even a section with herbal tonics and smoothies.
The ingredients are easy to find and the recipes are easy to follow. I especially like the To Make Ahead instructions for each recipe. There's no guessing if a dish freezes well, or how to cook/assemble it for later. I write out these instructions for whomever gets the dish. Everyone loves gifts of pre-made, homemade meals.
