Are you craving good old-fashioned comfort foods like your mom or Grandma used to make? Find some of my family favorites here on this blog like southern fried chicken, make-ahead breakfast casseroles, coffee cakes and more.

My name is Laura and I am a mom, wife, and Midwest cook that enjoys sharing many of my family’s favorite comfort food recipes. I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin and love to bring that farm-style home cooking to your table.

My aim with this website is to bring you excellent old-fashioned comfort foods that have stood the test of time and are still meant to be shared and enjoyed today. My philosophy on cooking and baking is that I want easy to follow recipes using basic ingredients that turn out good, each and every time.

So, just what is comfort food? I guess that is slightly different for everyone, but for me comfort food represents a feeling of home, family and soul. Comfort food is the glue that holds a family together. I think the comfort part is a feeling of safety and security combined with good memories of the past. I believe the heart and soul of the family starts in the kitchen.
