Food to comfort in hard times

I'm curious.

What do YOU cook when you're experiencing heartache, pain, loss, or just plain loneliness?

I'm going through a lot currently. Right now, anything baked has been calling to me. Be it savory or sweet, the oven has been my sanctuary. Cheesecakes, baked pasta, baked chicken, baked...anything.

For that matter, what do you crave to eat? What comforts your body and soul during times like these?

I'm currently craving anything my Mom made for me growing up. Which, involves a lot of baked things, now that I think about it. And chinese.

So, in conclusion, please give me your comfort foods.
