My wife is a big fan of making comfort food in the wintertime; on cold days like we've had recently it's not unlikely to find beef stroganoff cooking in the slow cooker or chicken pot pie in the oven.

Sometimes though, you want solid comfort food without having to worry about grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning up afterward.

Fortunately for us, we live in a state that has some phenomenal comfort food!
