Barefoot Contessa Foolproof Indeed

I recently made two really delicious recipes from Ina's latest cookbook, Barefoot Contessa - Foolproof

They were just straight up wonderful so without further ado, here they are:

I used spinach because I'm just not an arugula fan.  I also used canned beans instead of dried because I couldn't find dried cannellini beans to save my life.  It was warm and flavorful with a gourmet twist.

This would be wonderful on it's own or served with a nice tuna steak or chicken breast.

I used a mixture of chicken breasts and chicken drumsticks because a) I only like skinless, chicken breasts and b) it was the post apocalypse/ice storm here in Wilmington and there was no good chicken selection to be had.

And this would be amazing served with mashed potatoes.  I recently saw an episode of her show in which she served this with cheesy grits, another comforting side idea.

Two wonderful recipes, one delicious dinner.
