This is one simple dish, as most comfort foods are. Because when you want something comforting, the last thing you want to do is spend hours toiling away in the kitchen.

I mean, you’re all eating from the same goodness piled up on newspapers in the middle of the table. I was introduced to the low country boil in Auburn, Alabama. […]
