Barefoot Contessa at Home~ Cornish Hens never tasted so good!

This past Christmas I gifted myself with a second cookbook by the Barefoot Contessa.  I love this book even more than I love Barefoot in Paris.  I highly recommend this wonderful cookbook.


My favorite recipe has been the Cornish  Hens with Cornbread Stuffing.  By far, my favorite recipe by Ina Garten!  The hens were super moist and the dressing unbelievably flavorful.  I served them with Smashed Potatoes, a recipe I learned from my friend Joan who is a fabulous cook!  I didn’t tie the legs because after reading “Wrestling with Gravy” I decided it’s best to leave them loose.

To view other dishes I’ve tried from Ina’s newest cookbook, click below…
