When it comes to comfort food, I think of recipes I grew up with in Oklahoma, like biscuits and gravy, mac and cheese and my Dad’s fried chicken, but now living a healthier lifestyle in California, I’ve had to redefine comfort food.

Today, I’ve partnered up with my friends at Foster Farms to share one of my New Comfort Food favs!

New comfort food to me is incorporating some of the aspects of the old comfort food favs in new, healthier, yet still totally delicious, ways!

For example, using spaghetti squash instead of pasta in Mac & Cheese, like in this recipe for Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Spaghetti Squash, or going the other direction and using butternut squash to make the sauce in Mac & Cheese creamier with the use of less cheese, like I did in this recipe for Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese.
