When I was a little girl, we had waffles almost every Saturday morning. They were hot, and crispy, and just the smell signaled to me that Mom had breakfast almost ready. They are a comfort food for me, and when there’s an emergency it’s important to have comfort food around. When I noticed eFoods Direct… Read more »

I absolutely love mashed potatoes. Don’t you? Seasoned, garlic, or with just butter, it doesn’t matter to me. Mashed potatoes is a comfort food for me, and I don’t even only have it as a side dish—sometimes, it’s the main event (especially with cheese stirred in—yum).
