I love Ina Garten for many reasons. I bumped into her show many years ago on Food Network and never stopped watching. She has shown me many entertaining tips, lots of lucious recipes and much more. When I watch or read anything about her house in the Hamptons, or apartments in Paris or NYC, I drool. Who wouldn't? What a gorgeous life right? And Jeffrey, her husband? Very, very cute too. They make such a great couple, always laughing and joking around with each other. When Jeffrey is on Ina's show, it's even more fun than her other guests.
How about that barn addition? Did it make you green with envy? Yes, yes, I know. The grass is always greener and all of that. But, I sure would like to switch lives with her, but only for one day. Well, perhaps a week, if I could stay in her apartment in Paris. ;)
Ina has great, yet easy recipes too. And this one has a "wow" factor and is so simple to make, it's almost embarrassing to give them as gifts. But I do. I get those little celephane packages and a great piece of ribbon and tie a few of the piece of bark up. Voila. Spectacular. Give this White Chocolate Bark to family, friends or co-workers and they will think you have slaved all day. And they are so yummy that you have to keep a couple of pieces for yourself to have.
With the Holidays around the corner, it's nice to have a plate of these on hand too. I doubled the cranberries and left out the apricots. Enjoy ~
