ve been in one of those moods lately where I have no dang clue what to cook You have to feed the men people in my house though so I ve been looking for new ideas Then I decided to stop just hoarding the cookbooks I own and actually use some of them This week it was The Barefoot Contessa Did you guys know that this chick could cook so well I thought she just did fancy smancy dinner parties and swooned over Jeffery all the time.First up for us was her Easy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese I ve been in one of those moods lately where I have no dang clue what to cook You have to feed the men people in my house though so I ve been looking for new ideas Then I decided to stop just hoarding the cookbooks I own and actually use some of them This week it was The Barefoot Contessa Did you guys know that this chick could cook so well I thought she just did fancy smancy dinner parties and swooned over Jeffery all the time.First up for us was her Easy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese All I can say is..OH MY FREAKING GAWDS This was some good stuff I m not even crazy about tomato soup I would post a pic of the finished meal that I did but we ate it All of it The husband and I stood over the pot and took a spoon and scraped ever last dribble of it up I probably should tell you that I never really follow a recipe exactly and I added cheddar cheese slices instead of Gruyere cheese in the grilled cheese I do what I want.Next up, Jambalaya See those food spills all over I m messy This was really beyond good too I had used Justin Wilson s Jambalaya recipe for years and thought it was pretty decent until I had this My tongue did the happy dance Here is my finished version of this Wondering what I changed in this one The wine Some heifer drank all the wine before making this because a friend bought me the best wineglass ever You know you have to make sure these glasses don t leak or nuthin And last for the week We probably are going to try a few others out of this book next week because dang they good Was the meatloaf The one recipe that I follow all the dang rules too and I still jack up the garlic sauce somehow It still tasted better than anything I usually make so I m still calling it a win I will say that Jeffery better be looking out because the boy child is pretty enad of these recipes and he might be gonna try and take your woman Once again, Ina has come out

Clearly, it means that the recipe works that goes without saying But there sto it than that It s a dish that s deeply satisfying to eat it s a company friendly meal that can ne made in advance to reduce your stress and it s an putrageously delicious dessert that s so easy to make that it becomes part of your regular repertoire I want these all to be the recipes that you love so much that you make them over and over again because that s when a recipe becomes truly foolproof when you feel that you can almost make it with your eyes closed EDIT to be sure this paragraph is recognized as a quote from the book.She begins with some general cooking tips and then moves into cocktails Don t miss the Caramelized Bacon nor the Parmesan Crisps we ve probably all made them, but she gives em a new to me twist In the section on Starters, her Gazpacho with Goat Cheese Croutons is a winner, using canned Marzano tomatoes I ve always loved mussels, made the traditional French way We have them at least once a month I was dubious about her Mussels with Saffron Mayonnaise, but decided to try it, but making my own mayonnaise Delightful It will be hard to decide which method to use in the future The Marinated Artichoke Hearts Artichaut Barigoule are fabulous She adds sun dried tomatoes, carrots, olives, and.For Lunch, there s nothing that can touch the Lobster and Potato Salad Ina says, The name Barefoot Contessa is about the juxtaposition of elegant and earthy Perfect We also enjoyed the Balsamic Roasted Beet Salad and the recipe for easy Hollandaise is, in fact, easy, and will actually hold for a while So many good choices for Dinner Mustard Marinated Flank Steak Amelia s Jambalaya Straw and Hay with GorgonzolaI could go on and on Everything I ve tried has been fantastic, not just good.Vegetables Sides are always difficult, at least for me She has given us so many interesting choices here that I feel I can serve up sparkling menus time after time A few faves Crispy Roasted Kale so simple, and I also serve this as hors d oeuvres crispy English Potatoes brown Rice and Wheatberries and Balsamic Toasted Brussels Sprouts.Desserts are usually a puzzlement for me We re not big on desserts, and I look for very light, small, simple things But her Orange French Lace Cookies, and the traditonal Prunes in Armagnac fill the bill nicely.Then come sections on Foolproof Table Settings she does this so well and Foolproof Menus perhaps my favorite part of the book The menus dishes either link to recipes in this book, or refer to which of her other books contains them Very useful.Finally, Sourcesbecause she gives us her favorite brand name ingredients, it s nice to know where to get them.Once again, Ina Garten, dare I call her today s Perlel Mesta , has given us a complete book on a culinary entertaining focus This book will serve anyone, barest beginner no cookbook should be without intructions for making chicken stock, and this one has it to the most accomplished home cook Flipped through this and loved it I ll reserve the last star until I make the recipes I love watching Ina Garten s show, and I will certainly cook some of these recipes
