So, you might be asking the question, “Where do Social Fabric members look to find great recipes for their favorite comfort foods?” Most members stated websites like Taste of Home or Paula Deen; but others also stated blogs and old family recipes. Old family recipes seems to be the #1 source for favorite comfort foods.
