From the Author
First things first: I wrote this book while I was pregnant. Whew. It feels good to get that off my (rapidly expanding) chest. There were a few benefits to my "state." Mainly, food tasted absolutely amazing to me during my entire pregnancy. My mind flooded with cravings and flavor combinations all the live-long day. As I wrote and tested each recipe, I felt like an artist expressing myself in food. It was a good time to be a pregnant lady. I hope y'all enjoy this book. I certainly had a fantastic time writing it.
From the Inside Flap
Man (and woman) can't survive on dessert alone! Lucky for us, cookbook author Christina Lane has produced another invaluable collection of delicious recipes, both sweet and savory. Comfort foods, Southern classics, and family favorites for morning, noon, and night share the spotlight with more desserts for two.

Comfort and Joy is filled with every day recipes inspired by Southern comfort foods. These recipes are made for one to two people, but they can easily be adjusted to feed more people. Which I absolutely love. Because I really rather make half a dozen cookies and not four.
I love Christina's approach to this book. You can hear her voice in her writing, inviting you to try her recipes. It's as if a friend is talking you through the steps to create every day comfort foods in your own little kitchen. You can find all sorts of recipes from breakfast to dinner and even more small batch desserts.The recipes are amazing and simple, the photos are gorgeous.
Where else would you find recipes for eggs baked in baguette, sweet tea fried chicken, or bacon parmesan biscuits! And these are only some of the recipes that she shares with us in her latest book.
I recommend this cookbook to anyone who wants to make small batches of food. As much as I love desserts and comfort food as the next person, sometimes, I think I prefer small portions of it so that I won't have to eat the same food for days. Because if I make less of one dish, I can try more of other dishes. No? Just me?
Seriously, give this book a try, especially if you're a fan of Southern comfort foods. =)
I think I love this cookbook even more than the first. I would highly recommend both her first and second book and her blog for anyone who loves to cook a real meal--from scratch, but only has two mouths to feed.
I would really like to give this book 3.5 stars. There are recipes in here that really don't qualify as such. Bacon for 2, put 4 strips in the oven, is a bit ridiculous. There are a few more like that.
The dinner section is rather short whereas the brunch/breakfast section is the biggest part of the book. I thought the Thanksgiving for 2 was a cute idea and of course more desserts are welcome, however iced coffee and teas for two and the like could have been placed as tips in the book rather than full page recipes with full color pictures no less.
All in all I do like the book but I think it was rushed and/or they just wanted to fill space.
