INA GARTEN! i saw her cookbook, back to basics, at tj maxx the other day and contemplated buying it. i started browsing through the recipes and these two stood out amongst MANY others that also looked delicious. then it occurred to me the internet exists and there's no need to buy when i can google. wa-la!
tomato and goat cheese tarts: well mine were tomato and sheep feta. divine! divine! divine! these will be made again. i used trader joe's puff pastry in the frozen section. super easy, no rolling required. heirloom tomatoes, and trader joe's sheep feta. i always have it on hand. extra creamy, less tart. heaven.
roasted butternut squash salad with warm cider vinaigrette: i followed her recipe but substituted arugula for red lettuce...just what i had on hand...and used candied pecans vs. toasted walnuts. la bomba.
fall is around the corner and i'm excited for a new season's bounty!
