Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A New Cookbook

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 . . . 

 It's Foolproof!!!!

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.

You are such a great cook, Martha. You should have your own book. Those potatoes look so good I just might make them this weekend. It's wonderful that pup loves his veggies. That's real food and makes up for the stuff they call dog food. Deb

I always look forward to your posts because you are such a great cook yourself. I saw this book yesterday in WS -- didn't get it yet.

Been meaning to ask --is there some kind of problem with your internet server? I actually subscribe to your blog, but I can't open it most of the time.

It all looks delicious....yum! Thanks for leaving me a sweet note on my blog...I really appreciate it!
Have a nice weekend!

I'm sure it is very difficult to say no to those sweet Corgi eyes. Our Scotties have that look perfected as well, but they tend to use it only on my husband and daughter. It doesn't work as well on me. :)

I look forward to seeing more of your recreations of Ina's recipes in the future!

Martha said...

Tammy -- there will be more! I adore Ina and cook a lot from all of her cookbooks!

Patricia @ ButterYum said...

I see it's time to update my Ina collection. I have all her other books - love them!!

Lemon Verbena Lady said...

I do love Ina as well, Martha! And Deb is right you should write a cookbook. It would be a winner! I also love your new little doggie, Dolly! A cutie! xxoo Nancy

I have Ina's cookbook on the way to me!

Your poinsettias are lovely. And, I'm pleased to know that we are "sisters".


On Crooked Creek said...

YuMMy!!! I, too, adore Ina's recipes!!! Not as full of BUTTER as my other favorite cook! Ha! When you make the Raspberry Crumble Bars...please share the recipe, dear friend! I love raspberries!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Bernideen said...

I have seen you often use Ina's recipes and they are wonderful when you do! I think you header should say - and there are herbs in the garden for cooking!

Martha said...

Bernideen -- I am immediately going to change my header -- what a great idea!

I have several of Ina's cookbooks, Martha, and I'm tempted to get his new one.
