In the Kitchen


Anyone who knows me knows I love

the Barefoot Contessa, also known as

Ina Garten.  So when her new cookbook

came out this month I started cooking, I

mean eating, I mean cooking my way

through it.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Chocolate Cake with Mocha Frosting, is

fantastic.  The instant espresso powder

really brings out the intense chocolate

flavor and the frosting with Kahlua is a

great combination.  Make it as a sheet cake,

it does not work as a layer cake – don’t ask.

Let’s just say it gives new meaning to

crater cake.

Mini Italian Fittatas are my new tradition

for Christmas morning.  These delicious

egg muffins, with two different cheeses,

are perfect for a small or large crowd.

Skillet Brownies are dangerously good.  I

actually went to my camping supply store

and bought these mini skillets to make these

cocoa delicious brownies.  Really worth it

if you love your brownies warm with chocolate

chips and melting ice cream on top.

The Herb-Roasted Fish was super easy to make

and is a new staple in my house.  Really really good!

The Sour Cream Corn Bread, I thought, needed a tablespoon of

honey added to the recipe; but then I like things

sweet.  Wild Mushroom & Farro Soup is the perfect

winter soup with rich satisfying flavor.  Enjoy!
