    Back to Basics- Cookbook by Ina Garten recipes

    I love Ina Garten and her recipes. This cookbook I compiled is the result of hours combing over the actual cookbook and the postings and making sure what is there is counted. These are all in the Ina Garten-The Barefoot Contessa's Back to Basics recipe book. These are the ones currently found on the from that specific book posted by myself and loads of others. Try them out! I will add to them and hopefully have them all in here one day. This makes it easy for me to view at the store and at home without carrying around the book. Hope you enjoy the compilation. Enjoy! ChefDLH

    I adore chocolate bark, especially when it has good dark chocolate! This recipe came from Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa show. I have changed a few things around. Enjoy! :D

    Recipe #374286

    Barefoot Contessa

    Recipe #207104

    I just watched Barefoot Contessa and Ina made this wonderful recipe that I think would be very good for our Christmas Eve dinner with the family. From her Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics Thanksgiving Countdown 2008 show on Food Network.

    This is a VERY good, simple Meuniere. Sometimes I use tilapia...I think you can use almost any kind of firm white fish. Be sure to use kosher salt, there is a difference. And I think the lemon zest really adds to the dish. I also add a few splashes of white wine and sometimes add capers at the end.

    This was the first recipe that my friend Lia posted to her blog, This Little Piglet, after a six-month post-baby reprieve. This girl knows her food, so it's got to be good (still waiting to try it myself)!

    Recipe #338443

    Food Network's Barefoot Contessa, 2008. These are supposed to be single serving, but best if cut up in fourths as appetizers.

    Recipe #378672

    From The Barefoot Contessa, 2008

    Recipe #378665

    This is the original out of her Back to Basics Cookbook. There are other versions out there with the ingredients adjusted and redone but this one is the real deal. The difference is that the meatballs are made with ground chicken and chicken sausage not beef or pork. A welcome change from the normal wedding soup. Ina Garten aka the Barefoot Contessa makes this traditional soup in a different yet wonderfully flavorful way. The directions look to be many but they are spread out to make it easier to make. Don't let it intimidate. After the meatballs it is simple. Perfect for those cold days and nights. Enjoy! ChefDLH

    Recipe #413780

    This is a sauce for dipping shrimp into. It goes with Ina Garten's roasted shrimp cocktail Roasted shrimp coctail recipe #350688 . This sauce from Back to Basics cookbook from 2008, is perfect for any shrimp cocktail and easy to make. I keep it on file so no more bottle cocktail sauce is needed thus saving me money and allowing me to control the ingredients. Enjoy! ChefDLH

    Recipe #413445

    This recipe for shrimp cocktail is way better than any cold recipe I have ever tried! I saw it on Food Network by Ina of Barefoot Contessa... The shrimp is so flavorful!! The original recipe also included a cocktail sauce, but they were so good, we didn't even need sauce!

    Recipe #350688

    These potatoes are not quite as crispy like fries but they're better for you because they're baked. The serving size says 4, but I eat all of them at one sitting! Adapted from Ina Garten's book,"Back to Basics"(Barefoot Contessa). Ina likes to cut them into fairly large wedges, but I like them smaller(like french fries) because I love the crispiness and get more of it with smaller wedges! Sweet potatoes are available year-round, but their prime season is really autumn and winter. Choose potatoes that are smooth and unblemished, and use them fairly soon because they don't keep as well as other potatoes.

    This easy dinner recipe is adapted from "Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics", by Ina Garten. The chicken gets so tender, it just falls off the bone. Chicken needs to marinate for at least 4 hours, so you can prepare it in the morning (or the evening before) and then just cook before dinner. {The original recipe calls for grilling the chicken. If you want to grill the chicken: Spread 1/4 of the coals across the other side of the grill, place the chicken on the cooler side, skin side up, and weight it down with a heavy dish. Cook for 12-15 minutes, until the underside is golden brown, turn over and weight it again. Cook for another 12-15 minutes. Place the lemon halves on the cool side of the grill in the last 10 minutes of cooking. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with tin foil. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into quarters, sprinkle with salt and serve with grilled lemon halves.} THE CALORIE COUNT FOR THIS RECIPE IS INCORRECT: I used the USDA website to calculate it and it is actually 357 calories per serving.

    Recipe #345403

    Roasting the broccoli with garlic and Parmesan gives this dish great flavor. You may cut all the stem off the broccoli but I like to leave a little on. You may also peel the stems, cut them in julienne strips and use them too, if you wish. Adapted from the ABC news program. From Ina Gartens new book Back to Basics(Barefoot Contessa).

    This is a recipe from Ina Garten's Back to Basics 2008 cookbook. It is a warm side dish that combines rice, fruit flavors butter and ground black pepper for a flavorful accompaniment to meat or stand alone. Note: don't let it get crunchy, the rice should be tender. if you need help with toasting pecans look at How to Toast Pecans Recipe#2688 It is a combination of a cold salad she made in her store Barefoot Contessa and a warm party dish of her own recipe collection to make the best of both. Unique and fun! Enjoy! ChefDLH

    Recipe #412924

    Another great one from Ina Garten. This is from her Back to Basics cookbook from 2008. Perfect when you have tons of corn when it is in season and want a colorful and flavorful dish to accompany any meal really. Perfect at bbqs, cookouts, everyday dinners and get togethers. Enjoy! ChefDLH

    Recipe #412923

    I got this recipe from the Today Show starring chef Ina Garten. My husband and I enjoy this simple, but delicious, recipe at least once a week. I make the recipe as posted but have substituted a large onion when I forget to buy fennel bulbs. I also use frozen baby green beans instead of French string beans.

    Recipe #363313

    This recipe is for a great soup by the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten in her new book Back to Basics. The secret is the crunchy shallots so make sure to try making them as well. See recipe #412840 as well for that- well worth it. Enjoy ChefDLH

    Recipe #412844

    This is for crisy shallots to serve on soup, steaks, in salads etc. Delicious addition. Must try. Ideally paired with roasted potato and leek soup by Ina Garten (see my public recipes for the recipe). This is from her Back to Basics cookbook in 2008. Enjoy! ChefDLH
