A day of comfort food cookin'




Weekends are quiet without the bf. And when it rains, there's more reason to stay home making it twice as miserable. That's why I turn to kitchen therapy.

The last time I spent all day cooking comfort food was when the bf was around :( Now that he isn't, I took the opportunity to prepare things he wouldn't normally eat.


Warm zesty Pannetone bread and butter pudding: crispy on the outside, and wobbly on the inside (as Jamie Oliver would say)


Butternut squash risotto with saffron: cooked slowly with broth from Boulette's Larder


The roasted butternut squash is delightfully sweet from the caramelization! Mmmm...


Breakfast fruit loaf with oatmeal: this is a test run for the bf's dad who adores fruit cake. As an alternative I baked this because it's not as sweet and has no alcohol. That, and it's absolutely delish! My neighbor even proclaimed it "Ritz Carlton standards" because of the moistness


Studded with golden raisins and dried bing cherries, topped with nutty streusel


I can't wait to cook with you again hon. 20 days and counting...
