Barefoot Contessa

In my 30 Things you may have noticed #17...make all of our favorite BC Recipes.  Maybe you were unsure as to what that pertained to.  Well, you see, I have a *slight* obsession with Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa.  Some people really don't like her and others, well I'm in this boat, we love her!  I can't say she's my favorite to watch but one thing I can say is that I love her food.  Classic, elegant, and super easy!  I only have 5 of her 7 cookbooks so the recipes are only from the 5 I own.

She's queen of taking in season food and taking it to the next level without a lot of work. might think, wow those recipes must be hard, quite the opposite.  Few recipes have over 7 ingredients and hands down, I have never had a recipe fail me yet.  They are that good.  So here is the list, some I've made before and many I have not.  In the next year I hope to make as many of these as possible...
Here's to 30 and Ina Garten!
