The Best Greek Salad- Ina’s of Course

This Greek Salad is one of my go to recipes- originating from Ina, of course. I’ve made it twice for meals I’ve hosted in the last two weeks, have been making it for years, and yet, I have never shared my version of it here for reference. Really, this is a crime. It is always…

Greek Chicken

Since Easter hams aren’t a thing in Switzerland, although ham itself seems to be everything…and I’ve never cooked lamb, the more traditional Easter brunch choice, I elected a fresh, terrace-friendly option- Greek Chicken based on a What’s Gaby Cooking recipe, though not the same. First, let’s have a look at a fresh little apero hour…

Ina’s Roasted Veggie Frittata

With five (known) weekends of lock down in sight, I’ve put together a calendar of new walks to take and classic recipes to master or cook for the very first time. Cooking in a small space, in Celsius, with grocery stores that are mostly like those of the US, until you’re planning a recipe and…

Ina and Emily Blunt Make Potatoes

The title here really is the backstory. I read that this seemingly odd combo crashed Ina’s site so I had to try these wee potatoes. Out of this world and worthy of said internet crash. Ina and Emily Roast Potatoes Yukon gold potatoes 1/2 c. vegetable oil\ Sea Salt Parsley Clean then cut potatoes into…

Ina’s Salmon with Melting Tomatoes

Funny how stressful quarantines are better suited for wine and popcorn rather than the latest gourmet Mediterranean meal. Tonight would be different- tonight the Chrissy Teigan style of cooking salmon takes a Mediterranean vacation (that I could really, REALLY do with) with Ina Garten and this lovely recipe. The whole bit cooks for 11 minutes…

Ina’s Turkey Sausage Lasagna

What’s the best leftover you can think of that’s delicious served cold? Revenge? Close. For me, it’s anything red sauce pasta, which is how I cam to test drive Ina Garten’s Turkey Sausage Lasagna as part of my Hurricane Dorian readiness plan. This was beyond simple to make and will absolutely be a staple in…

Ina’s Pork Tenderloin

I made a nice pre-second-to-last-GoT episode dinner on Sunday basically because I needed an occasion to cook Ina Garten’s pork tenderloin recipe. (Oh, and a get-rid-of-all-the-veggies (and bacon) sweet potato hash). Nom. So, Ina suggest serenading (marinating) the tenderloins for 3-24 hours. I’m an overachiever and opted for 32 hours and it was just delightful….

Supermodel Project: Braised Short Ribs

I was a little nervous for the Valentine’s Day main event, Chrissy Teigan’s Braised Short Ribs, because I’d never made them before. It was a leap of faith down the supermodel cooking runway. Ms. Teigan suggests serving said ribs over a sweet potato mash that is flavored with maple syrup. While I may like Valentine’s…

Ina’s Tri-Colore Salad

I’m grossly uncool when it comes to Valentine’s Day…I LOVE IT. It’s just a nice excuse to plan an elaborate meal for no real reason and make others, or even just yourself happy. A few girlfriends tried to talk me into a weekend away, but I stuck to my tradition and whipped up a nice…

Ina/Flo’s Bolognese- AKA Flolognese

I’m anxiously awaiting Hurricane Florence in Raleigh, NC, this week and while the forecast keeps changing, the contents of my freezer have not. A pound of ground beef, some canned tomatoes, what’s a girl to do but make Ina Garten’s Bolognese sauce? I came up with this solid life plan when I realize that my…

What Came First? The Eggplant or the Emoji? 🍆

This weekend I hosted company who freakin’ loves some eggplant – the food not the emoji. So, I found the most wonderful looking recipe I could find and readied myself to making a delicious main dish for Saturday night dinner. Naturally, I leaned on Ina Garten’s Eggplant Gratin. Now Ina’s recipes are so foolproof that…

Pretzel Bread Crusted Salmon

Pretzel Bread Crusted Salmon. There, I said it. It’s basically a 0 on the ass whooping scale. On one hand you have God’s most perfect food, pretzel bread, and on the other belly flattening salmon. This has to even out to zero. Right? That’s what I’m telling myself and you should too. I took Ina…
