Foolproof Afternoon

We got together a couple of weeks ago to discuss and sample all things Ina Garten Foolproof.  Below are some of our thoughts:

  • Very easy to use- not a lot of page flipping.  Two thumbs up.
  • Solid recipes.  Indeed, they were “foolproof.”
  • Lovable Ina… please have us over for a cocktail, we could be friends.
  • Too much lobster for our Northwest food selections
  • Not necessarily inspiring to cook from- but everything is delicious.
  • Pretty substantial portion size.

Here are some of the dishes that we sampled:

Somehow I missed photographing the Cosmopolitans and the Meatloaf that Devon brought- Not sure how that happened.

 

May be because I was more focused on this:

Honestly, have you seen a more ridiculous plate of food?

A wonderful afternoon.  Can’t wait to get everyone together again!
