Modern Comfort Food is here and just in time for a fall/winter season that is sure to be a doozy. As Ina Garten writes in the book, “Food has an almost magical ability to comfort us, soothe us, and bring us together in so many ways.” We wholeheartedly agree and there are so many great recipes in Ina Garten’s latest Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, it was hard to choose where to start! Everyone in our family loves Mexican food, so we decided to start with Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas and let me tell you it was a HUGE hit. It’s a fairly classic Mexican dish but of course, Ina gives it a delicious twist!
We’re back with another great recipe for the Cast Iron Skillet. If you’ve been following along you know we love our Cast Iron Skillets and Ina Garten’s Skillet Brownies. That recipe inspired us to try a dessert in our 12-inch Cast Iron Skillet, Lodge’s Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie. It is amazing!
As soon as we saw these Sheet Pan Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches on Lidey Heuck’s blog LideyLikes, my daughter Summer and I have wanted to make them. They combine all of our favorite things – cookies, ice cream, and sprinkles. Over the last few months we’ve actually made them twice. They are THAT good.
For us, summer means salad season – greens, pasta, cheese, fruits, veggies, pancetta – you name it and we’ve probably had it in a summer salad. Over and over again I find myself reaching for a Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl. They are so useful and there is really no end to their utility, just ask my kiddos – they have been known to use them as hats, bathtubs for toys, and of course, noise makers. We like them so much that we wanted to highlight how we use them on a daily basis.
