All day every day, we would make recipes from Ina Garten with a drop of a hat. If there’s one thing that the cookbook author and television host understands better than anyone else, it’s exceptional summer cooking and entertaining. Maybe your aim is to power through the mountain of summer produce going wild in your garden, or all your heart desires is to eat fresh, tasty food that doesn’t come with tireless hours sweating away in your hot kitchen. Maybe, that invitation to Ina’s got lost for yet another summer (we can relate). The Barefoot Contessa has many recipes that are perfect for any warmer month occasion — from a quick tomato salad to a very simple berries and chocolate dessert to a juicy cocktail in a big martini glass. Here are 10 of our personal favorite recipes that we tried and will always go back to this time of the year.
