There was this pastry cake we used to buy on occasion at the local bakery and it was one of my favourites.
The person who used to bake them retired and they stopped making that cake.
Almost 20 years later, they decide to bring it back and the moment my father sees it he gets one for me.
I was very pleasantly surprised and touched by his thoughtful gesture.

This is the "flying saucer" cake, it has a few layers of puff pastry, sweet egg filling cream and tiny bits of sprinkled coconut, the thing on the top is some kind of hardened sugar:

My favorite was when we celebrated my birthday and my fathers in February.
My Mon Made from scratch an angel food cake with cream cheese cherry icing.
It was all pink with tiny pieces of red cherries in the icing. This is my best memory. We also had chicken soup and dressing made from scratch during the Holidays , Blessings, Jo Ann

My mom hates cooking, and my dad has always been the chef of the family. But whenever I'm sad she always makes me peanut butter marshmallow toast
It's really easy to make, but its more special when she makes it because she never cooks. Toast a piece of bread (or a few ) put peanut butter on it, stack it up with mini marshmallows and set it in the oven for a couple minutes until the marshmallows are golden brown. my comfort food!

Oh man. We just ate my chicken soup, and now I want dessert! Cinnamon rolls, pastries with sugar and coconut, angel food cake with frosting, marshmallow toast... Yum yum yum.

It's funny- Alex's love food is chicken soup, but like you, Morgan, my mom didn't really cook. My favorite food memories are from my dad. We didn't have much growing up, but we were a close family. I remember when I was 8 or so, my dad took me on a long road trip to visit family. One morning we had to eat breakfast from a gas station where we stopped to fill the car. He told me to pick the healthiest thing. I was mystified. What on earth could I get from a gas station for breakfast that is healthy? He took my little hand and led me to the answer... Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies! It made perfect sense to my 8 year old brain- they have oatmeal! Oatmeal is a healthy breakfast option! To this day, I love them, and I justify the rare occasion that I eat one by reminding myself that they are the healthiest thing in many gas stations

I love reading these memories- I can picture that homemade angel food cake, sticky little cinnamon bun hands on Sunday's, the sweet efforts to bring a favorite cake or make toast. I can just feel the love!

Julie, I think you should get our pot luck Reese's on the East Coast. They might melt in the car otherwise!

That makes sense Leslie . Since I have to buy the Reese's at a store anyway, I'll drive out there, and pick them up at a grocery store in Virginia .

I wonder how long it would take me to drive literally across the entire country? I really hate driving for long periods, so count in the the fact that I will only be driving max 3 hours per day... and that's with frequent breaks I'll be there by desert time .

I love this thread Leslie !

This thread is just great

I would have to say that mine is potato soup. I've loved it ever since I was a little girl and my mum always makes it for my birthday.

It is made with potatoes, and almost two full bags of cheese, so it's very rich, hence the rarity of it. There's little melty bits of butter in it, and little curly broccoli pieces, and on top, a bit of bacon and some more cheese

I love this soup because of the taste, of course, but also because of how much it represents my whole life as a general event

Perhaps I'll bring some to the potluck

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about everyone's comfort foods--it's truly fascinating!

Mmmmmm- bacon and cheese potato soup. Yes, Starling, you must bring that to the potluck!

Ok, TB... Word problem! If Julie leaves California, traveling an average of 55 mph for three hours a day, and stopping at a grocery store in Virginia for Reese's Cups, when must she leave in order to arrive at the autumn equinox budgie potluck by dessert? My calculations indicate she should leave...... 3 weeks ago?

You just made my day! That last line made me laugh!

By the way, thanks for starting this thread, it's really a fun one to follow.
