Trusted kitchen and home goods utilized by Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa.
As many of you know, my mom Barbara has been Ina Garten’s assistant for more than 20 years. What started as a part-time job working on The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook turned into an exciting, life-changing career and unique friendship. Last week my mom and I decided to have an early Mother’s Day brunch and cook together. Whenever my mother visits, we cook. Mother’s Day is no exception - she has so much wisdom in the kitchen and I’m always learning from her. We laugh and chat. If I happen to rush through things or get ahead of myself, my mom gives me the “that’s not how Ina does it” line. It’s wonderful.
Ina Garten’s cookbook 'How Easy is That?' is filled with amazing recipes that taste so good people will think you’ve spent all day cooking. Weeknight Bolognese is no exception. Like the name states, it’s a great dinner option to ‘throw together’ during the week. Yes it comes together easily, but it’s also a total crowd pleaser. Hearty and delicious and as Ina calls it ‘the perfect stick-to-your-ribs dinner on a cold night.’ Hopefully our cold nights are quickly coming to an end but until they do, we’ll be enjoying Weeknight Bolognese!
