I’m a huge sucker for a cozy blanket and a good movie or TV show. In fact, I just bought a new blanket the other day because someone is always stealing mine! As soon as fall hits and the weather starts to get chilly, cozying up with something good to watch and something good to eat just go hand in hand. What you eat, though, depends on what you watch. Here is my guide to cozy binge watching and comfort food!
For the “no little ones” shows and movies OR the raunchy comedies, I like the junk food type of comfort food. These Mini Chili Cheese Pretzel Dogs with Wolf Brand Chili are the perfect way to skip dinner and save your appetite for late night watching.
My top picks for late-night?
The Walking Dead
This is 40
These Mini Chili Cheese Pretzel Dogs would even go great with a video game night! My husband and I love to play together, so after the kids go to bed we can have a date night in!
When I want to have some girl time, otherwise known as a “chick flick binge”, I go for the best stand-by recipe ever – mini pizza! Using a quick spray of PAM Cooking Spray before spreading the pizza dough into the pan ensures my pizza won’t stick to the pan. I like to eat my food, not have a huge mess to clean up! PAM Cooking Spray is a staple in my kitchen and used almost daily. It’s a must-have kitchen item if you want your food to come right out of pans and dishes.
I also like to make my own sauce, so having Hunt’s Tomato Sauce as the base ingredient for a quick pizza sauce is important. For these pizzas, I went simple. Some Hunt’s Tomato Sauce (maybe ¼ cup? Save the rest of your sauce in the freezer if you have any leftover!), a little garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and a pinch of pepper. Spread the sauce on the dough and top with your favorite toppings. These mini pizzas take just a couple of minutes to prepare and about 10 minutes in the oven at 375*. That gives me plenty of time to pick out the entertainment!
What are my picks for top chick flicks?

Other great movies that just beg for comfort food include Steel Magnolias, Save The Last Dance, Pitch Perfect, and The Notebook.
Want even more binge-worthy TV shows? We are currently rewatching One Tree Hill but in the past have enjoyed Breaking Bad, Secret Life of An American Teenager, That 70’s Show, and Malcolm in the Middle. Obviously, our tastes are all over the place!
