Over the weekend I attended a brunch event at Serra Plaza in San Juan Capistrano. One of the best parts of the brunch was sampling the many comfort foods available to tantalize our palate. And it was tantalizing! It got me to thinking about how much I love comfort foods. I watched the reactions of those around me as they sampled their comfort foods. There were "Ooohs and Aaahs" in abundance. It was nutritious, delicious and certainly a great way to strike up conversation. I had a wonderful time and I believe that the good food took part in setting up my mood.
Fall is an ideal time for offering comfort foods. Rich soups, tart apples, sticky, gooey desserts. And what better time to strike up a lively conversation than at cocktail hour. Here are a few of my top choices for Fall Inspired Wedding Appetizers.
