Excellent. Next time I would use less oil and opt for half the amount of feta (and use crumbled feta to have it blend in more subtly). I made it as a side dish for seven adults and half the recipe would have been sufficient. Ina is the priestess of "

This is an excellent recipe, and despite my improvised alterations was a big success for dinner for 6 adults the day after Thanksgiving. I made one large pot pie, covered it with a prepared pie crust and brushed the crust with a lightly beaten egg before baking. I omitted the corn and instead peeled and diced 2 small russet potatoes and added th"

Another elegant, idiot proof recipe from Ina--who never disappoints. Not only were the blended flavors excellent, the potato texture was surprisingly crisp and very good. A far cry from the mushy potato salad that passes as the American standard in many delis. I brought it to a BBQ with a few friends last weekend and I'm still enjoying the left"

Ina is the priestess of elegant simplicity and perfectly balanced flavors, and this recipe is no exception (three cheers for Ina!. I get the eggs and the other non-dairy ingredients from a local farmer's market--and rosemary from my front yard--and imagine getting a nod from Ina for not skimping on the ingredients. I've followed this recipe thr...

This recipe is perfection. I made the mistake of pulling the dish out after exactly 6 minutes forgetting to make up for lost time and heat when I slowly turned the baking dish around half way through. And although I waited a full minute before serving, I burned the roof of my mouth on the first bite I rested on top of the toast. Both easily avo"

I'm eating the chocolate bark I made from this recipe yesterday and it tastes as good as it looks! I made it with Ghiradelli 60% cacao bittersweet, Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate, 1/2 cup of chopped dried apricots, a 1/4 cup of dried cranberries, and a mix of lightly salted peanuts, almonds, pistachios, pecans, walnuts, and filbert hazelnuts.

Although I really like the simplicity and elegance of this recipe, and I honestly love everything about Ina, I believe the recipe, and associated video, is lacking in detail about carving the roasted chicken. I also like to add fresh herbs such as thyme or rosemary inside the cavity of the chicken along with the lemons.

I agree that half a cup of oil was a bit much, and that freshly grated Parmesan was a nice addition. I was surprised to learn that left over slices of this garlic bread are delectable when reheated in the toaster for up to a week.
