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.
