My fave comfort food... real mashed potatoes with lots of gravy and butter. YUM.


Excluding dessert, it would be mac 'n cheese.

I love all food...but I'm thinking the best is the kind you can share.

Today's favorite food is double-stuff Oreos. it was 100 degrees today and all my students were miserable. At the end of the day, one of my favorites came and sat by me as we waited for the afternoon heat to turn down. I happened to have a couple of Oreos and it was too tempting to twist one apart and offer half to her (she took the stuff with the cream, curse her!). It felt lovely to sit side by side, twisting cookies and teasing over who'd get the side with the cream filling.

It was a lovely ending to a hellish day. So, today's favorite cookie? Store-bought Oreos.

Oh my gosh, my all time fave comfort food is MASHED POTATOE'S!!!! OH my word I could eat them forever, in fact I don't allow myself to make them for I'd eat them all so I only eat them when I order them somewhere and only when it's a special feeling down, or my birthday or, it's Tuesday, or it's Wednesday or....
ugh it's hopeless ... me and my love for mashed potatoe's!!!
Thanks Jen

My comfort food is when I am studying for a exam. I like to stuff myself with dipping chips in sour cream. Read one sentence dip chip in sour cream. Then chew, then swallow. Then read next sentence and dip the chip in sour cream and chew and swallow. You get the picture. But the chips have to fully rounded chips not broken( or it looses it's affect)It has to be Ruffles too. If the chips are not rounded I look for another one in the bag.
Not any chip will do.
And thank goodness my Anatomy and Physiology class will be over by Wednesday. My body is probably saying thank g-d. I can't take all these fat globules going to the hips.

I can see why! That cover looks so yummy! Now I want cupcakes.


My favorite food is Chicken Alfredo.

Deanna McNeal

I love the knitting club books :) see you on twitter


Hmmm. Lasagna! Yeah, that's my fav.


Mac &cheese - homemade...followed by tollhouse cookies Mmmmmmm :)

Melissa C

I love a good cheese. I especially like Asiago! Mmmmmm...

Sue W.

There are two things that I crave way to often one is free buttered popcorn and the other is white macdamia nut cookies fresh from the oven. Then again I love just about any food from as they say soup to nuts.


Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies


My favoirte comfort food is meatloaf with mashed potatoes -- YUM!!!!


My favorite comfort food is macaroni and cheese- the really decadent kind with bacon and lots and lots of cheese baked on top. :-)


I love the cover on that one too. My favorite food is probably salad, but if I have to pick one ingredient out of that, I'll say tomatoes!

I'm the oldest of five and when I was in junior high, my mom went back to school. I got to cook dinner. Mac and cheese was a frequent serving. I remember grating the cheese and it was soo hot in the kitchen. It was YEARS before I could eat a bite of it again. Now I love it! I even have a lower fat recipe that's pretty good too. Though most of my friends say I'm missing the point.


Can it be that there are only two types of carb-loaders in the world - mashed potato people and mac-n-cheese people? I am firmly loyal to Team Mash...


My favorite food is meat loaf and mashed potatoes. Chocolate covered strawberries for dessert!


Hi -- I work for Borders. We are having a book club night event in our Borders stores tomorrow night, April 23 at beginning at 7 p.m. featuring Kate Jacobs' "The Friday Night Knitting Club." Kate will call into book club events at Borders stores in Eatontown, NJ, Colleyville, TX, Roseville, MN and Pleasant Hill, CA, so if you are lucky enough to live in/near those cities, you can attend the events and ask questions of Kate about her book. She's a huge book club proponent. If you want her to call into your bookclub about "Comfort Foods" or her other books, you can ask her to do so by logging onto her Web site at!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
