Ina Garten’s best winter comfort food recipes for snowy days – SheKnows

There is a big snowstorm hovering over the northeast today, and both children and adults revel in the coziness of a wintery snow day. Even our favorite celebrities, like Ina Garten, marvel at the wonderland of winter and try to stay cozy and warm at home. We love to tackle a cozy cooking project when it’s cold outside and we have nowhere to go, so we started to wonder – if we were Ina Garten, trapped in our beautiful Hamptons home during a snowstorm, what would we do then? These are just a few of the best Barefoot Contessa recipes for cooking on a snowy day, from Modern comfort food and further.

If a recipe has ever been more than the sum of its parts, it’s this one. The garden’s perfect fried chicken becomes tender, moist and full of flavor, thanks to the generous amount of herbs, lemon and butter required. It’s everything you want for dinner on a cold evening (and the remaining lemon chicken makes great soup!).
