The definition of “comfort food” can be subject to a discussion as a big fat burger can be also as a comforting as a bowl of lentils.

In this blog recent blog post, the Homesick Texan is thinking of missing out on the typical road to Thanksgiving with the family and green bean casserole, and is thinking of creating effective substitutes itself. As the homesick Texan is in Texas, his eyes wander off to the cold dessert, and considers making something out of those cactuses. In addition to the recipe, the blogger also shares some thoughts and tips on having cactus as food.
The Blue Kitchen shares a recipe for Duck Breasts with White Beans and Sausage which was inspired by a rustic meal at Clyde Common in Portland that reminded the diners of a cassoulet. Although the meal was not a cassoulet, the Blue Kitchen blogs the experience of making one, although interestingly, the cooked dish did not result to the classic cassoulet. The story may be a roundabout of ironies, but nonetheless, the Duck Breasts with White Beans and Sausage dish looks lovely and scrumptious.
As No Recipes blogger Marc supposedly does not believe in recipes, he shares a technique instead on how to cook the perfect steak.
