The Stress Kitchen: What we all cooked last week

When the going gets tough, as it certainly did last week, many cooks head to the kitchen for refuge, comfort, and often simply something to occupy themselves. If you have the ingredients — we all had the time on Friday — you can produce a feast. I call this The Stress Kitchen.

I asked on Twitter (#thestresskitchen) what people had made and the answers that came back were dishes so comforting I could practically smell the birds roasting, taste the sauces simmering, and whiff the freshly baked cakes and cookies.
