Welcome to my world of comfort food, recipes and discussion.

My daughter and I took a trip to Shipshewana, Indiana last year. We had such a nice time and talk about comfort food. They have every pie known to man, pies I have never even heard of and some I have heard of but never tried. Our favorite was the fresh raspberry , and fresh peach, too good! I tried shoo fly pie and have to admit I didn't care for it, a little too sweet for me. They had bakery the size of footballs and the chicken dinner was unbelievable. We live in Michigan so we do go up to Frankenmuth where they also have wonderful chicken dinners but this was just as good. The shops are so much fun and the atmosphere is very pleasant, not rushed, peaceful. I recommend going there to you all. My daughter and I were also huge fans(until the last season which I won't talk about) of The Gilmore Girls. In Shipshewana there was an area that reminded us both of Star's Hollow, we spent a lot of time there relaxing. Last Christmas my daughter made this picture for me, I was overwhelmed. It is just like the area we called"Stars Hollow". I am a lucky and very proud Mom.
