Let's see … I got a warm fire in the fireplace, a good book, slippers on … all I need to be more "comfy" is uh … some "comfort" food.

A Taste of Home magazine survey says comfort food ranges from favorite childhood foods Mom used to make, to ethnic dishes, to rich desserts.

According to the survey, 35% of the one thousand respondents listed chocolate and desserts as the number one comfort food. 13% ranked ice cream as their favorite … while 12% prefer salty snacks including corn chips, peanuts and potato chips.

Other comfort foods included pizza, macaroni and cheese, and meatloaf.
