We all have those foods we consider to be our comfort foods. Foods we thoroughly enjoy and often remind of us our childhood or other special moments. Some of my comfort foods include Lasagna, Macaroni & Cheese, Turkey (Christmas) Dinner, and Shepherd's Pie. I haven't been enjoying these foods lately due to trying to avoid several problematic and inflammatory foods, including gluten and dairy. Today I decided I would make my Lasagna. I can't even remember the last time I made it. Yes, it has noodles and cheese, tomatoes, peppers, and onion (foods that are or may be problematic for me) but it's better than going off the deep end and eating everything in sight. It was delicious, even if I screwed it up a little :) I was making Lasagna but my mind was thinking Chili and I added chili powder and red pepper flakes before I realized my mistake. It was still good though :)
Also made a treat today using a new recipe which was pretty good. I tried No Bake Chili Brownies. I didn't find them very brownie like in texture, more crumbly, but still good. Think they may be nice sprinkled with a little cinnamon and coconut sugar once made. May try that next time.
