Stars Favorite Comfort Foods, Most celebrities have to watch what they eat, just like athletes do. Many fitness experts suggest that you have a day off a strict eating regiment. In other words you get a “cheat” day. Six days of eating right and one day to enjoy your favorite comfort foods. Celebrities love comfort foods too. Let’s take a look at some celebrities’ favorite “bad” foods.
Curtis Stone’s Sticky Chicken Drumsticks
Curtis Stone, accomplished chef, TLC host, and author of Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone, grew up in Australia spending Sundays with his grandparents, eating hearty family meals. His Sticky Chicken Drumsticks combine Asian flavors with fare we all crave: barbecue.
Martha Stewart’s Meat Loaf Sandwich and Shepherd’s Pie
Meat loaf is one of those foods that reminds us of family dinners at the kitchen table. But Martha’s meat loaf is not Mom’s meat loaf. Martha steps it up with ground beef, pork, and buffalo: an update to this classic sandwich. Top it off with Martha’s Perfect Fries. If you’re not a meat loaf fan, try her scrumptious take on Shepherd’s Pie.

Michael Schlow’s Creamy Chicken Stew with Buttered “Noodles”
Aromatic stews evoke feelings of a warm and cozy night at home.
