Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog. My name is Lisa and I’ll be here a few times a week. Here, at the Comfort Café, we sure love comfort food. What’s better than enjoying a dish made with love and sharing with people you love. Baked goods, such as breads, cakes and cookies are some of my favorite things to make. I have a large variety of recipes for soups, egg dishes, salsas, dips and casseroles, so there will be plenty of those to choose from. My intention is to provide easy to read recipes with clear instructions that even the most basic beginner cook or baker can master in no time. I’ll share my recipes with you and I’ll share the final product of my test recipes with people in need.
I also have a lot of feature ideas I’d like to share with you. From time to time, we’ll “Dismantle the Technical Speak” of recipes and explain terms as simple as sauté to the more uncommon sous vide. I have friends who are wonderful cooks, so we’ll have “Recipes With Friends” and have them guest blog and they can share their favorite recipes with us, too. I’d like us all to step “Outside The Comfort Zone” occasionally and try things that we’ve never had before or experiment with unusual ingredients…maybe something you didn’t like as a kid and just never tried again as an adult. I have several things that I am willing to try, but I can absolutely assure you, one of those things will not be liver. We’ll do a segment called “Your Nuts“, too. I have a lot of great recipes that include nuts and we will do some fun gift ideas around Christmas with candied and seasoned nuts. I like a good “Challenge” as well, so I’ll try to duplicate favorite restaurant foods, experiment with recipes from other countries, and see how we measure up to some of those Pinterest vs. real life fails.
I hope you enjoy my creations as well as my family recipes and others I’ve discovered along the way. By the way, I should mention that Comfort Café is a fictional place, I’ve always dreamed of opening a little café and if I did, its name would be Comfort Café.
