Look what came yesterday!

I went out to shake my kitchen rug and found a box containing these on my front porch this morning!


I am so excited and happy!

I can't wait to try some new recipes. I am in a rut with my cooking and hoping that this will infuse me with ideas.

I am for sure going to make the Otsu from Heidi's book but both cookbooks have recipes for marinara sauces that I can't wait to try — to put over some fresh pasta or even a homemade pizza. 

Will keep you posted!

Happy & Blessed Sunday to you!

Smitten Kitchen

But my all time favorite food inspiration has to be Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa. I have all her cookbooks (except the French one) and have never been disappointed in a single recipe. I got her new one today, Back to Basics, and can't wait to try a few of the recipes. Her food is so delicious and amazingly simple—each recipe seems to have no more than a handful of ingredients, yet it is always so yummy.

Last month when Ellie was so sick I wanted to make her some chicken soup but couldn't find a recipe in any of my books or online. Then I remembered that Ina had one in one of her books. I made it and it was perfection! It just goes to show you that sometimes simple is the best.
