All things Barefoot Contessa

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. Albert Einstein

Wishing you a day full of peaceful moments!
I love all things Barefoot Contessa / Ina Garten!  I have been following her shows for a while and I love her recipes! She recently came out with a new cookbook, Cooking for Jeffrey and this is what the new season of her show is based on. She recently did an episode in Washington DC. It was truly a heart warming show, check it out! I pre ordered her cookbook and it arrived about a week ago. I had seen her on several tv shows and could not wait for this book! Not only are there delicious recipes inside but she shares her favorite pantry items, her favorites for starting a kitchen and her favorite equipment! The book opens with her and Jeffrey’s story.
I used to collect cookbooks but trying to minimize stuff in my home, I have begun to give away many of my books and have vowed to not purchase too many more! This is truly one of those books that belongs in every kitchen! It would also make a lovely gift!
I have made the Maple-Roasted Carrot Salad and the Spicy Hermit Bars so far. See the pictures below. Both recipes were easy and so delicious! The Spicy Hermit Bars made my house smell like the holidays, similar smell to gingerbread but a little stronger! I am looking forward to more time in my kitchen with this beautiful new book! ENJOY!
