The Saturday Seven: Favorite Foods I Crave

I like to think of myself as a fairly balanced individual, having normal tastes and interests that of the typical person. Although I do admit to being a "creature of habit" and have certain favorites. This is especially true when it comes to food. I am what some people call a "foodie", which our friends at Wikipedia define as: "a gourmet is a person with a sensitive and discriminating palate, and who is knowledgeable in fine food and drink or haute cuisine". I wince at that definition because it sounds terribly snooty, and that is one thing I am not. Despite that I am a foodie, there are certain foods which I always crave, and go back to time and again when I'm feeling a little blue. This brings be to another scintillating edition of
The Saturday Seven: Favorite Foods I Crave
#1 Lasagna:

#2 Fannie May Chocolate Pixies (pecans, caramel, drenched in chocolate)

#3 Chicken Pot Pie

#4 Home made warm Brownies

#5 Banana Cream Pie

#6 Peanut Butter & Jam sandwich (organic peanut butter, of course!)

#7 Pancakes (with real Vermont maple syrup)

Bonus item: Macaroni & Cheese

Before you call me out for having a preponderance of dessert type things, I fully admit to having an incurable sweet-tooth, but alas, it is part of who I am. So how about YOU? What are your favorite foods you crave? Go ahead, join in the fun, remember, comments are ALWAYS FREE on Saturdays!

Empress said it just look so good that you may be on our craving list!
I'd have to take pancakes and PB&J off of the list as far as cravings go.....but definitely lasagne, mac and cheese,.....PLUS a few more: tacos, grilled veggies on the BBQ, and pizza. Oh, and homemade peach ice cream isn't so bad either.

I'm a foodie too. But coming up with a list of the tops would be REALLY hard!

I would love to be a guest judge on Top Chef, as someone not famous at all in the celebrity chef world, but just a food addict who likes the good stuff!

Gosh- not sure HOW I missed Pizza. I LOVE pizza. Thanks Lewis n Lime

Desert Songbird said...

A wonderful list of comfort foods there, M. Gourmand; as a woman I'd have to agree with any chocolate untainted by coconut.

A steaming bowl of creamy, homemade mac 'n can one go wrong with that? Mmmmm...

Glad you called your mom. Wish I could call mine. Oh, I guess I could - there aren't long distance charges to heaven!

marlupe said...

I would add quiche to this list. And also blintzes

The lasagna pic looks delicious and I love homemade macaroni&cheese.
My favorite food is pizza and when my wife and I go out to eat I like going Italian and getting the eggplant parmesian.
Thanks for stopping by.:)

bunnygirl said...

These look like your comfort foods, and good choices!

My comfort food is a grilled cheese sandwich with a side of tater tots. At a diner-- none of this home-cooked stuff. It reminds me of long road trips as a kid. :-)

In terms of just day to day eating though, a Greek salad always fits the bill (as does anything with calamata olives and/or feta cheese). And don't stand between me and some naan and saag paneer if you know what's good for you! On vacations, I'm the official Flan Sampler-- gotta try them everywhere we go that offers them!

Mac'n'cheese is my favorite. But homemade not from a box. I make a killer homemade one!

Queen of Dysfunction said...

Wow, that definition does sound snooty doesn't it? Not at all what I would think of as a "foodie".

Your most recent posts are making me hungry.

Annette said...

WAT said...

I'm a "foodie" myself Rick and always love trying new things. That's one of the things I enjoy about your blog, all the lovely foodie photos you post. My favourite things would have to be a traditional English roast dinner, chieken tikka masala, anything with pasta, especially lasagne and chocolate fudge cake - I love that!
