A Few More Weeks of Comfort Food

As winter is coming to a close and we're all looking forward to spring salads, I'm a little reluctant to give up cold weather comfort foods. I've so enjoyed soups, hot cocoa and home-cooked meatloaf over the past few months. While I'm looking forward to planting our garden and enjoying fresh vegetables from it, I hope to fit it a few more of those "comfort food" meals.

I was excited to get to review Kate Tietje's new cookbook, Wholesome Comfort: Whole Foods to Warm and Nourish Your Family. While I am into trying new foods bordering on "health nut" status, I understand that many of you are not. Kate's site, Modern Alternative Mama, will blow you away if you do happen to be into natural health. However, this cookbook is especially for the person who doesn't want to give up some of these foods:

  • Beef Stew
  • Roast Turkey
  • Scalloped Potatoes
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Bread Stuffing
  • Gravy
  • Biscuits
  • Chocolate Fudge
  • Hot Chocolate
Do those recipes sound "weird" to anyone? Not at all! These are just a few of the recipes you probably have already tried and loved, but Kate has made into recipes without processed food and chemicals. Just plain ol' real, whole food manufactured by God.

What I especially liked about this book, since we have food allergies in our home, is the allergen component to the recipes. Each recipe is marked with a symbol to tell you if it is free of gluten, dairy, eggs, etc. All recipes are soy and seafood free, which really makes me happy!

Kate and her team at Modern Alternative Mama have offered to give one of my readers a copy of the e-book. Cookbooks are especially great to have as e-books because it is easy to print recipes and there are links to some tutorials on Kate's site right in the book. This is nice for those of us that need step-by-step help!
