  1. I absolutely adore Ina, and there are so many wonderful recipes it is hard to choose just one! I think I’ll have to go with her chicken pot pies. Even my picky family loves these warm and wonderful dinners!

  2. A friend made Ina’s cauliflower and celery root soup served with grilled cheese sandwiches with sauteed mushrooms and onions also by Ina. It was outrageously delicious!

  3. Green Goddess Dressing

    Soooo good. We use it on salads, morning toast with fresh picked tomatoes, dip for chips and cold seafood (lobster, shrimp and crab) platters.

  4. Hi!!!! I love Ina Garten! My favorite recipie of hers is her OUTSTANDING tuna tartare!! I even wrote my personal statement on how much I love making it for applications (college!!) I would love to see this show!

  5. I think Beattie’s Chocolate Cake is my absolute favorite Ina recipe. Its from Michael the Florist’s grandmother, and its amazing. The cake is made with freshly brewed coffee. I’ve been making it for years, and everyone always asks, where’d you find this? Ina!!!

  6. Love everything she makes. I especially enjoy her roast chicken
    with lemon and garlic. I also adore her awesome husband, Jeffrey!
