Whether its meatloaf, a casserole, or stew, creating dishes that you ate as a child can warm not only your stomachs but also your heart and soul with a bit of nostalgia. Allrecipes offers several comfort food suggestions that you should make this season. Here is our list of favorites.

Chicken Pot Pie

Arguably, one of the best comfort foods is chicken pot pie. If you do not know how to make it, you certainly want to add it to your repertoire. It has a little bit of everything: vegetables, tender pieces of chicken, a rich roux, and a scrumptious crust.


Everyone loves Italian. When you need an Italian dish that is hearty and warm, nothing can beat lasagna. While you certainly can find lasagna in the frozen section of your grocery store, there is something to be said about homemade lasagna. While perfect on its own, you can also pair it with a side salad and garlic bread.

Chicken and Dumplings

Best described as a thick chicken stew, chicken and dumplings are rich and mouthwatering. While you certainly can boil a whole chicken, you can truly make the dish decadent by using only chicken thighs. A bowl or two of this dish will certainly satisfy any hunger cravings you may have.

Pork Chops in Brown Gravy
