Wholesome Comfort

wholesome comfort

It’s the middle of the winter, and it’s cold.  The scene out the window looks like a Christmas card, it’s so picturesque: snow blanketing the world, flurries gently floating down.

This weather is perfect for curling up by the fire, wearing your favorite pajamas and eating a dish of your favorite comfort food.  There’s nothing quite like it: the warm, creamy, cheesy, stick-to-your ribs treats that are simply made for cold winter days.

Unfortunately, if you search for “comfort food recipes” on a generic site, you’re likely to come up with lots of recipes full of white sugar, white flour, canned soups, and other junk food.  That’s not very comforting — it’ll make you feel sick when you’re done!

Enter: Wholesome Comfort.

These are comfort foods like your grandma used to make.  They’re tried-and-true, down-home, real comfort food.  They’re full of cream, butter, cheese, and other real foods.  You’ll find no white flour or white sugar here.  Best of all, the book includes some tips on making over your favorite comfort food recipes, and includes a healthy “cream soup base” recipe to be used in place of any canned soup!  Or, of course, consumed straight and enjoyed fully. 🙂

Are you ready for comfort food that’s truly comforting?  Food that will make you feel as good as it looks and tastes, with no guilt or after-effects.  Food that nourishes while it comforts.  Food that’s reminiscent of perfect family favorites…and which will become new family favorites.

Dive in, and be comforted!

This book is 74 pages with 42 recipes of delicious, down-home comfort food with no junk and no compromises.  Many recipes are allergy-friendly, too, as you can see from the symbols above!  Each recipe is marked with cute little icons to let you know what it’s free of, too.  The book also contains around 30 full-color photographs of the recipes.

What are others saying about Wholesome Comfort?

“Kate has once again written a cookbook that makes even beginners realize they can cook healthy, wholesome, real foods the whole family will love! Wholesome Comfort is filled with foods (and ingredients) everybody will recognize, recipes that conjure up images of weekends at Grandma’s, Sunday dinners on the farm, and spending pleasant hours in the kitchen with Mother. The foods truly are comfort foods, perfect for an autumn dinner or a winter’s afternoon. My family raved over them. What a joy to realize you can eat healthy and still enjoy your favorite comfort foods!”

–Christy, www.thesimplehomemaker.com

“Kate has done it again! Just when I thought it was impossible to top her last collection of recipes, Kate has created what I consider to be THE go-to comfort food cookbook. As a real foodie I understand the importance of warming, nourishing foods during the cold months. However, finding tried and true recipes that are wholesale yet do not compromise flavor has been a challenge. Kate has successfully brought together the best of both worlds. Our family loves soup so I immediately made the chicken and dumplings. WOW! This is honestly the best version of a classic recipe that I have found. The flavors are rich and this soup is very filling, making it quite economical. I also tried the Italian Chicken and as an Italian can tell you that this is a really amazing dish! Kate outdid herself with this recipe. The chicken is very moist and the flavors are so savory. The sauce is really what makes this dish pop. One of the most exciting things about this book is that many of the recipes are allergy friendly both by design and by accident. It is tough to find comfort food recipes that are free of the typical allergens but Kate has found a way to do that with many of the recipes. As per the usual, Kate’s cookbook is well written, easy to use, and has lots of useful tidbits of information. I cannot wait to see what she does next!”

–Jennifer Saleem, www.hybridrastamama.com

“I was very happy to test several of Kate’s recipes – they were ALL excellent! I love that they’re down home recipes, using healthy ingredients and I can find most of them easily. If you want great, wholesome comfort food, this is the book for you.”

–Stacy Myers, www.stacymakescents.com

“Wholesome Comfort is a great combination of delicious and healthy. I love the fact that she so clearly delineates each recipe by its allergy friendliness. This is so practical for everyone with food allergies.”

–Janelle, www.glutenfreelyfrugal.com

“I love that all these recipes use “normal” but healthy ingredients. This cookbook is perfect for anyone who wants to serve real food for their family but is afraid it will take too much time or be too complicated.  And with my sons’ food allergies, I appreciate that many of the recipes
are allergy-friendly!”
