January, hits you fast after the Holidays, there is sometimes an emptiness after all of the celebrating and holiday festivities. When life slows down a bit, back into a steady pace, with an unexpected stay in the hospital or the cold or flu you have been fighting since Thanksgiving finally get its grip on you. There is nothing better for a mental and physical cure than the foods you remember from your childhood. Comfort Food.
Always a family favorite on a cold winter night, this was a special treat when served with a fresh green salad and a side of cottage cheese with fresh peaches.
