Today some blogging friends from The Garden Charmers are sharing their favourite winter comforts. From delicious food to creative handwork projects, we’ve got what you need to make winter a little warmer. See the bottom of this post for all of the project links.

But first, here’s mine:

Comfort Food, we all have our favorites. Sometimes it’s food we grew up with, recipes that are handed down from family to family. It’s almost always a dish that we could eat just about any time or any place and never tire of.

I’ve a long list of comfort foods but one of my favorites is the Greek Style Pizza that Chris makes. It started off with a recipe idea he found but was soon to be altered to his own style. The end result is a delicious, thin crust pizza rich with flavors and nutrition. It can make a meal or be served to company as a snack.

  1. Pizza is one of my favorite foods- any way any how, and this recipe looks delicious!! Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. Lynne, that looks so fabulous – I’ll have to make a gluten free option for the crust but the toppings will be just like enjoying my favorite salad.
