Simple & Delicious Ina Garten Recipes for the Ultimate Lazy Sunday

Sometimes, we’re searching for practical weeknight meals our kids won’t turn their noses up at. And sometimes, we’re just in the mood for a comforting dish that cooks long enough to binge a couple of episodes of Law & Order: SVU. When we’re in the mood for a totally lazy Sunday, there’s only one chef we turn to: Ina Garten.

To us, the ideal lazy Sunday means cozying up on the couch with our copy of Ina Garten’s latest cookbook, finding a delicious new recipe and then whipping up a decadent and indulgent Ina Garten-inspired meal.

And we’re not the only ones. Home cooks and pros all over the blogosphere have cooked their way through Garten’s recipes à la Julie & Julia.

From weeknight Bolognese to gooey-chewy brownies every chocolate lover dreams of, these are our favorite Ina Garten recipes for those lazy Sunday cooking sessions.
