I *heart* Ina

I love the barefoot contessa for her sophisticated yet back to basics approach to cooking and entertaining. I just picked up Ina Garten's newest cookbook at Costco this week. (It is about $14 less than Boarders). I love the two other cookbooks I have by Ina and this one looks wonderful as well. My goal is to try one Ina recipe a week. Tonight was her Turkey Meatloaf from her first cookbook. Meatloaf is something you either hate or unashamedly love. Since it is Eric's favorite- and I love leftover meatloaf sandwiches, meatloaf it was! Her recipe calls for 5 lbs of meat! I cut it in half it (as I usually do her recipes). It was great- but I'm really looking forward to the leftovers on toasted sourdough tomorrow!

I am glad you found a meatloaf recipe for me to try. I have made several different ones and none have been a show stopper. I look forward to trying this one. Did you make it with ground turkey?

I love Ina too, thanks for indroducing her to me years ago. I really like her new cookbook! I made her chocolate cake last night because I had some peanut butter frosting left. I don't normally like chocolate cake batter (just yellow), but this was amazing! I can't wait to try the cake tonight. I'll let you know how it was.
