Comfort food

It’s snowing again. I’m three days into my diet. This calls for soup! Soup has to be one of the best forms of comfort food. It’s obligingly versatile – happy in a cup or bowl, as posh or as simple as you please. And it’s (usually) healthy.  At least this spiced chicken and lentil broth is. Lentils are so good for you I can’t even begin to explain, and there’s something utterly homely about a chicken broth. It always reminds me of my grandmother cooking  for me when I was young.

On the flip-side of the dieting coin, all I’m craving at the moment is hot chocolate. This double rum hot chocolate recipe in particular has that kick of booze which is guaranteed to ward off the winter blues. Try it with these chocolate chunk cookies for a double whammy of chocolate dreaminess. Oh the weather outside is frightful…
