Fall is finally here! As we say goodbye to the warm, sultry days of summer…we welcome in the crisp autumn leaves of fall and the pleasures of simple, delicious home cooked meals.
When I was growing up, my stepmother made all sorts of comfort food for the family. She was famous for her homemade chicken noodle soup, piping hot pot pies, creamy mashed potatoes and warm apple strudel. Every evening was like a feast around the table! She always had something brewing in the kitchen that I looked forward to coming home to.
So now that I’m a mom, I also like to make comfort food for my family. But with a twist! I prefer our meals to be as fresh and healthy as possible. Therefore, I like to buy fresh produce from the farmer’s market and locally grown meat from the grocery store.
For example, recently I used Foster Farms® Simply Raised Chicken, grown right here in California, to make this Almond Crusted Chicken Breasts dish. The recipe was highly recommended to me by a friend. Yet instead of frying the chicken, I baked it in the oven. This is what I like to call “the new away of making comfort food!”
