Comfort food, with a light touch [Pictures, recipes]
The season's chilly weather calls for comfort food, but that's no reason to pack on the pounds. After all, spring is right around the corner.
We asked local chefs to share their comfort food favorites, lightened up a bit in honor of the season ahead. Many of our chefs gravitated toward seafood, and some added fresh vegetables and herbs.
Eat and enjoy!
