For me, comfort food is something that I always want to eat. Simply, I just love to eat.

Yes for me, it is not just about being full, it is an enjoyable experience. This is why I always come back to my favorites like this Mujadara, the Eggplant Lasagna, the Cacio e Pepe, or my Sweet and Sour Cauliflower.
