One of my culinary heroes is Ina Garten
I found Ina through her first cookbook
bought not when it first came out but in 2001
I adored it and soon bought her second and third.
And every other year -- the even years, I eagerly await her newest cookbook.
The last two cookbooks, she made an appearance in Kansas City
and I got to meet her!
How cool is that?
And on October 30th . . .
And I do cook out of Ina's books
And of all the recipes in this book, what did I try first?
Provencal Cherry Tomatoes Gratin
Crispy English Potatoes
It made for a great dinner with a pork tenderloin and baked applesauce (also from an Ina book)
Of all the recipes in the book, the one that I really wanted to try . . .
Raspberry Crumble Bars
Don't they look good?
The next time I have to bake a treat . . . they'll be the treat I'll bake!
Whenever we eat . . .
We have to look at this face . . .
Who thinks people food should be corgi food!
And she likes her vegetables!
It's Friday and I'm joining Michael at Brattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.
