What do you suggest to cook for someone who has lost a loved one in the wintertime? Meatloaf? Help!

Any suggestions on what to bring to family....

Hey there Stephanie,

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.

I think the best thing that you can bring to a family in mourning is comfort food. Meatloaf is a good choice. It can be heated up easily or can be used for sandwiches. Fried chicken would be good also, whether you use bone-in chicken or chicken strips. I find Lasagna to also be very comforting.

Casseroles and one pot meals are also excellent choices. Chicken and dumplins would be good. Macaroni and cheese or ham with scalloped potatoes are more great comfort food. Basically, what you are looking for are foods that are familiar and give you that "warm" feeling inside.

If you are wanting to take a dessert, you might want to consider Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting or maybe Peach Cobbler.

But, whatever you choose, I'm sure that it will be welcomed with open arms and the fact that you are putting such thought into it says a lot about you. They are very lucky to have you as a friend.

Take care and Warm Dishes,
