Here’s my list – leave yours in comments.

    Mine are almost entirely pasta-based, but:

    Spaghetti with homemade sauce (read: whatever random things are on hand go in). The only thing my dad ever cooked for us growing up, and still my ultimate go-to comfort food. I learned a lot about experimenting in cooking from his made-up concoctions, though as an adult I tend to stick with more traditional tomato-onion-garlic-wine recipes.

    Pesto–on pasta, on rice, on chicken, on veggies in the summer

    Homemade Mac n’ Cheese

    Roasted chicken/veggies

    Cuban black bean stew, made into rice and beans or burritos later

    Strawberry banana smoothies
