Ina Garten is my hero in the kitchen and all of her ‘Barefoot Contessa’ recipe books are, in my opinion, flawless. I often give them as gifts and mark off my favorite recipes!

Ina Garten tests her recipes over and over. Then, she sits and watches other people follow the recipes and if she notices that one of her instructions wasn’t clear, she re-writes the recipe. I think that is truly caring about her fans and going the extra step to ensure that the recipes she is suppling to us will come out perfect. In addition, every recipe has a picture and I am inspired by the photographs so, Thank you Ina!

Calabro Ricotta

Making my own ricotta cheese is on my never ending ‘to-do’ list! Until I get around to that, I need to continue to buy it pre-made.

Sour Cream

I discovered Alexrod Sour cream about a year ago. I love it because of its texture. It doesn’t have that watery film on the top when you open it like some other brands. Its downfall? It never seams to be on sale!
