Classic comfort foods know how to hit the spot–whether it's a chilly winter's day, the first day of vacation, or a cozy night in. We love both the traditional, American favorites like corn chowder and roast beef, and the twists on European classics like calzones and fettuccine alfredo. Cozy comfort foods please a wide range of palates with familiar ingredients like potatoes, cheese, and ground beef. We've included over 20 of our favorite recipes that can be enjoyed by both the oldest and youngest members of the family. Each season and occasion carries with it a set of expected classics: we crave hearty stews and chilis in the coldest months of the year and savory grilled and smoked meats for summer outings and barbecues. Our step-by-step recipes make creating a home-cooked classic easy and fun for the whole family. Learn how to make Southern Fried Okra or Southwestern Corn Chowder in just a few simple steps.
