We had our first snow today and that called for baked goods in the form of cinnamon baked doughnuts. 🙂


This recipe is from the Barefoot Contessa Foolproof cookbook – they’re actually quite light, not too sweet and amazing with coffee. 🙂

I celebrated reaching recipe #200 by choosing something decadent.

This recipe is from the Barefoot Contessa Parties cookbook and can be found here.

I’ve been getting ready for fall weather…and in my neck of the woods, that means apples, root veggies, pumpkins and squash…  Since my husband and I are off this week, I spontaneously decided to have a Thanksgiving meal in August. 🙂 Because it was just us two, I got 2 turkey breasts and still have leftovers!

This was dessert – the Barefoot Contessa’s Apple Crostata from the Parties cookbook. I love all of Ina’s crostatas and this one was no different. A classic apple dessert. The recipe can be found here.

The recipe is from the Barefoot Contessa Family Style cookbook and can be found here.

The recipe can be found here and is from the Barefoot Contessa’s How Easy is That cookbook.


I also had “make red velvet cake” on my Life List, so I crossed of an item as well.

We’re approaching the end of the year…it’s time to start looking at what I accomplished and looking ahead at the year ahead. Stay tuned!

These might be the best sugar cookies I’ve ever had (either made myself of by others). They’re soft and chewy and very very yummy. No wonder they’re the highest rated sugar cookie on the Food Network site! Recipe can be found here.
