This started out as project Comfort Foods cooking class! Nailed it!
I think this one is such a great recipe, even if I say so myself. I love it’s warmth and homliness. Not a pretty dish, but so yummy and the fragrance while it is on the go makes you feel like all is right with the world. A blustery cold day is instantly fixed with a bowl of this home cooked goodness. I do think it will become a family favourite. It certainly is in our house.
