Spaghetti. With meatballs. And garlic bread. That’s undoubtedly our favorite meal here at Feaston. We shopped around at the store for our favorite pasta sauce and we generally buy this brand. But lately, our loyalty has switched to a new brand: our own.
With the abundance of tomatoes from our backyard garden we have been making huge soup pots full of sauce, then bagging and freezing it. The plan? Crack them open for some fresh garden taste once winter rolls around.

Asparagus is right in the thick of its growing season and are we ever glad! Unlike the off-season stuff you find at the grocery store, fresh, local asparagus tends to have smaller, more tender spears, making it the perfect addition to this creamy pasta dish.
We recommend you pull out the biggest skillet you can find and save this recipe for a cooler day – no one wants heavy cream when it’s 90 degrees outside.
Does there exist a better comfort food? I think not.
Whether you like it topped with ketchup or doused in gravy, meatloaf is like a big ol’ hug for the soul. And as my niece once informed me, perhaps the best part of making meatloaf is eating the leftover meatloaf sandwiches.
It comes with meat and potatoes. What else do you need. Oh, there's vegetables. Chopped onions in the meat.
In need of a special treat?
Ribs are it. We’ve made them before on the grill and we hear they are super easy in the Crock Pot, but our butcher (some guy working in the meat department at Wegmans), said we had to try them in the oven. So we did.
Now, ribs are definitely a bit of a splurge and they do take some time, but they are WORTH it.

Warning: this is not health food. It is comfort food. And it is GOOOOOOD.
There’s not much to this except for a lot of cheese and a lot of stirring. Let’s do this!
It's the cheesiest comfort around!
