Sometimes you just need some comfort food.
Because you stubbed your toe on that stupid raised step into the kitchen that you know is there, but nevertheless you always seem to forget to pick up your foot that extra two inches.
Or maybe because it’s dark and rainy out, and that’s just a good reason in itself to do anything in the kitchen.
Or perhaps you whipped up an awesome batch of cupcakes, and wanted to top them with an equally awesome brown sugar marshmallow frosting. Except no matter how long you hovered over your hand mixer churning away, the frosting never gets past the consistency of fluff, and so you give up and eat your cupcakes, slightly unsatisfied.
That’s reason enough for me to throw a nice, bubbly pan of mac n’ cheese in the oven. And if scallions and pesto are added to the mix, my sad cupcake blues just melt away with each bite that feels like a hug in my mouth. Excuse me, I have some more cheesy pasta to eat.
