I have been on a big cooking kick, trying new recipes -- at least 3 times a week. Below are some yummy recipes I've tried lately, all from the lovely Ina Garten from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook and Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics. I have found you can also get many of her delicious recipes online too (here and here).
The top two are my most favorite, yet I am still exploring her collection, and since it has been snowy and cold lately I've been testing out more of her comfort food selections.
Lentil Vegetable Soup
Turkey Meatloaf + Parmesan Smashed Potatoes
Potato Leek Soup
Besides my love for her recipes and cooking show it is fun look at her beautiful apartment in Paris! (Images are from Town & Country 11/08 via stephmodo) ...
and her gorgeous new barn photographed in House Beautiful. (via Apartment Therapy : the Kitchn)
I've heard buzz about how this economic time is prompting more good 'ole home cooking, is that true for you? What is your most favorite all-time tried and true recipes? Share yours in the comments and I'll pick a lucky commenter to win Ina's new book, Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics!
