Classic Dishes & Comfort Food

These are the dishes you grew up with: the comforting, timeless meals that are intertwined with your favorite memories. Perhaps the smell of warm, sweet cinnamon buns transports you to the anticipation of Christmas morning. The sound of bubbling mozzarella atop layers of noodles, sauce, and meat might remind you of your grandmother’s smile while serving her famous lasagna.

Modifications can be made to all of the dishes below to meet your dietary requirements.

Steak & Potatoes…When covering the classics, there is no excluding steak and potatoes. Rib-eye is seared in a cast-iron pan to get a delightful crust while remaining juicy inside. Potatoes are served any way you like (mashed, roasted, au gratin - you pick!) along with sauteed asparagus. (SF, GF, options for: DF, Whole 30, Paleo)

Chicken Broccoli Ziti, or CBZ…Upon meeting my husband, I soon found out that he referred to Chicken Broccoli Ziti only as “CBZ” and expected that acronym to be common vernacular. I have since made many bowls of CBZ and we are now married - I’d like to think the CBZ has something to do with that! Ziti, tender chicken breast, and steamed broccoli in a silky cream sauce. (SF, options for: GF)

Black Bean Skillet Chili…This vegetarian skillet chili is packed with black beans, tomatoes and onions and then topped with homemade pickled onions. Once you try chili with a pickled onion finish, you will demand it on every bowl you eat. (Vegan, DF, SF, GF)

KEY…GF: Gluten-free, DF: Dairy-free, SF: soy-free
