Ina Garten of Eden
|Beets, Beef, and Sprouts with a Little Slaw|
I regularly use her recipes for roasted beets, roasted Brussels sprouts, and sautéed sugar snap peas because the results are quick, nearly effortless, and super yum. They also don't require a lot of my attention once they're in the oven, freeing me up to focus on more complex aspects of the meal.
Trivia: Did you know that she worked at the White House as a budget analyst and wrote the United States' nuclear energy budget under Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter?
Well, I don't know much about nuclear budgets but I know what I like to eat. So long as she keeps simple, delicious, time-saving recipes coming Ina Garten can call herself whatever she likes.
