Sunday Comfort Meals (#213H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG
Why rush? Sunday meals are all about comfort, familiar dishes made with love and eaten with family and friends. On top of the list is Roast Chicken Stuffed with Zucchini and Cheese to keep it moist and flavorful. Deviled Bones sounds gothic, but it's meaty, tender short ribs coated with a kick of mustard for heat. Odd Lots Mac and Cheese is a winner with the whole family, and the best part - any leftover cheese will do! And Sara's Creamsicle Dessert will bring back comforting memories of the ice cream truck in summer.

Bellissimo!
