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.
