Comfort food also has a way of instantly transporting us to our childhood, too, as you can see in these videos starring Chesca Kramer and Dimples Romana. For these two moms, when you say comfort food it's not really about the dishes or the flavors. It's about the childhood memories and nostalgic feelings they evoke.
