Winners will be contacted via email to arrange for prize pick up.

Adirondack Creamery, a new comer that produces premium ice cream made from hormone-free milk and cream from local family farms, has recently caught our attention. Our current cravings include two distinctive flavors: kulfi (pistachio cardamom) and chocolate walnut chip. The kulfi is really light and subtle, which is nice, as the cardamom doesn’t overpower. The chocolate walnut chip may sound ordinary but I don’t see anyone else out there making this combination of flavor that works so well together. So this week, we are giving two winners a pint each of our favorite Adirondack flavors.

Click here for a list of other Adirondack Creamery flavors. And check out where you can buy Adirondack Creamery ice creams.

Thank you, Adirondack Creamery for your Baking Fridays contribution this week!

Chicken soup with lots of red pepper and parsley. Eating out, chicken congee at Congee Village.

My comfort food: Herbal tea and toast. It’s the only time I really enjoy it. I know when I don’t want coffee (even from my favorite place – joe’s on E. 13th St.) and crave tea and toast that it’s time to get under the covers.

My Maw’s homemade beef soup. She even makes the noodles herself. Best soup that I have ever had (probably ever will). So, so good. She has passed on the recipe, but I can not make it as good as she can. It must be all of the love she puts in it. :)

Mom would always make me a milkshake in a plastic tumbler, so I crave them when I’m sick. Although as I’ve gotten older I realize the dairy isn’t the best for me when I’m hacking in bed…but it still makes me feel much better.

it’s called jewish penicillin for a reason: mom’s homemade chicken soup!


Oct 12, 06:03 AM

Chicken soup (of course), ginger ale, and low sodium stoned wheat thins.


Oct 12, 06:10 AM

tom yum soup! it really clears out those sinuses. also lemon-ginger juice shots.


Oct 12, 06:24 AM

Nurunji is the crispy bits of burned rice stuck to the bottom of the pot…you can actually buy packages of it at Korean groceries and when you boil it in a little water, you’re rewarded with a creamy, nutty-tasting rice soup. Sooo comforting when sick!


Oct 12, 06:41 AM

Ginger ale with lots of ice, cinammon toast, and a thin chocolate milk shake made with Hershey’s syrup.


Oct 12, 06:58 AM

For others I make Julia Snacks.

For me any kind of noodles mostly Pad Thai will work well to comfort.

Julia Snacks consist of a lightly warmed tortilla filled with sautéed spinach, sautéed tomato, sautéed onions, and sometimes mushrooms. A tiny bit of cheese is melted in the lightly browned tortilla. Put together by Julia for her girlfriend.


Oct 12, 06:58 AM

A soft-boiled egg with toast, and ginger ale.


Oct 12, 07:23 AM

Chinese ‘niu rou mian’ or Beef noodles. Spicy tender beef on hearty noodles with spinach or chinese greens. Warms the belly up fast.

Tom Yum soup. ;)


Oct 12, 07:53 AM

how to contend with all of these great answers. . . i have to admit that the first thing that popped in my mind was homemade chicken broth. nothing could be better. just sip it all day long. soothing, restorative, and sustaining.


Oct 12, 08:01 AM

Cinnamon Toast….toast butter sugar and cinnamon…


Oct 12, 08:38 AM

Congee with sliced pork, cauliflower, and assorted toppings. Also tofu paste (“tofu-ru”) makes everything taste better!


Oct 12, 08:49 AM

My comfort food is and will always be cream of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich, just like mom made me as a kid. Although now it’s homemade soup from roasted tomatoes, and sandwiches with multigrain bread and Gruyere cheese! A slight variation on the kid’s version. One thing hasn’t changed – the need for real butter on the bread before grilling. Margerine or soy substitutes will just don’t work as well.

I wish I could say something a little more original… but I have to go with homemade Chicken Soup. The way my Mom makes it, the way I make it for my children and the way my children will make it for my grandchildren. Comforting, warm, light yet filling. It soothes what ever aches you have.


Oct 12, 10:26 AM

I recently brought Sulung Tang (snowy white ox-bone soup with white rice and white noodles) from Gammiok for someone I care about. I think it was a hit.


Oct 12, 12:09 PM

khichidi! An Indian comfort food — kind of like congee in consisitency. Made with rice and mung beans cooked together for a long time with water, spices and turmeric. You always eat it hot with butter or ghee. Mmh, mmh, mmh! And it drives away sniffles and fever.

howard tang

Oct 12, 12:24 PM

chicken noodle soup


Oct 12, 12:51 PM

Yellow daal with soft rice and lemon pickle. Makes me feel much better and a cure for all ills. Then to top it all, a large brandy.


Oct 12, 12:52 PM

Ensaymada… the best medicine. If you don’t know what this is, then look it up, find it, buy it, eat it, and enjoy it… instant cure to life’s ills.


Oct 12, 12:56 PM

I love pudding when I’m sick. My mom always made it for me, so it reminds me of being cared for.

on the hot side, which is most comforting…hot mint tea with a shot of brandy and a dab of honey; any hot savory soup; sashimi and the heat of wasabi. On the cold side, a bowl of chocolate hagen daaz or a shake to soothe a sore throat.

Just bought 2 pints of Adirondack ice cream for 4.99 each. IT HAS TO BE THE MOST FLAVORLESS, BLAND NOTHING OVERPRICED ICE CREAM I’ve ever eaten. Terrible. Save your money.


Jun 9, 03:43 PM

Eao has clearly not tried their mint chip. It’s fucking orgasmic.

Some of their other flavors are kind of bleh though.


Jun 10, 04:51 PM

gosh i just bought some adirondack vanilla and think its totally amazing. so creamy! so vanilla-y. way better than b and j’s or hagenzaaz or julie’s organic or ronneybrook ice cream. so there you go…
as for comfort food
i too am all about the chicken soup, organic gingerale, and anything cinnamon-ny.
