I have this theory that there’s nothing some hearty comfort food recipes can’t fix. Forgot your subway card and had to walk a mile home in the snow? There’s a warm, creamy pasta bake for that. Ran into your ex at the grocery store while looking *unwell* after a night out? There’s a cheesy homemade pizza for that. Feeling low because the sun now sets at 6 p.m. and your yearly existential crisis has set in? There’s a chicken and rice casserole for that.

While I’m wildly excited about the warm knit sweaters and cozy nights in that cooler weather brings, I’m even more excited to indulge in all the comfort food recipes that bring me so much joy. Whether you’re looking to warm up on a crisp fall evening, forget a subpar day at work, or reward yourself for walking home instead of taking public transportation, we’ve got a comfort meal for you.
