How Easy is That?

Last week, while on a run to BJs, I came across the book table where a  few Barefoot Contessa books were for sale.  I love her television show on Food Network, and have been tempted by her cookbooks for a long time, but  I opted to do the frugal thing and went to my library instead!  I found two of her cookbooks on the shelves and began with How Easy is That?  I have thoroughly enjoyed paging through the recipes, commentary, and tips in this book and even found a few dishes that I'd like to prepare during Great Lent!  I'm going to try to make some of these (with a few modifications) over the next few weeks.  We have several more PreSanctified Liturgies with potluck meals afterward and there are also coffee hour potlucks to bring things to.  Happily, the Food Network is very obliging and had all of the recipes that I want to try on their website!  Does any of this look good to you?

Roasted Shrimp Salad   (I'll substitute Vegenaise for the mayonnaise)

Lobster and Shells  (I'll use Vegenaise and leave out the sour cream in this recipe)

I don't know if it's online, but her recipe for Stewed Lentils and Tomatoes is one of my favorite Lenten recipes. It's from her book Barefoot Contessa at Home.

I love Ina Garten! I have made many of her recipes, and they have never failed me. I own Barefiot Contessa at home, and in Paris. Love them both.
