Memories of special meals prepared by loving family members evoke powerful emotions in all of us. These favorite dishes, commonly known as "comfort food", remind us of times and places in our lives that generate feelings of safety, warmth and joy. Inside you'll find more than 100 recipes from American cooks, spanning a period from the early 1900s to the 1980s. I've also included a few family comfort food stories and photos that will warm your heart as well as your tummy, plus a bit of history about popular food trends during each decade. These recipes are simple, hearty fare, but all are tried and true family favorites, like meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, chicken pot pie and banana pudding. I hope you enjoy this glimpse of comforting foods from our past and use these recipes to create your own taste of memories for the future.
