Beth chose recipes from Ina Garten’s “Foolproof.”  I’d say this cookbook lives up to its title!

Colleen enjoyed perusing through the pages…Ina’s cookbooks can definitely be read like novels!

Allison is helping Shelly prepare the cocktail!  Be sure to stir the strawberry puree slowly as the Prosecco tends to foam up quickly!

We enjoyed Rossinis, a Bellini type cocktail but with strawberries!  Loved Beth’s spring table and this Prosecco label!

I made these Balsamic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts!  I’ll be making these again.  Adding pancetta and the balsamic vinegar really added a punch to the typical roasted brussels sprouts!

We all agreed this menu was a keeper as well as the cookbook!  We missed Diane due to illness and hope she is well soon!!!

Do you ever cook with Ina Garten?

Enjoy the day!
