Publisher Description

Ina Garten, bestselling cookbook author and beloved star of Barefoot Contessa on Food Network, is back with her easiest recipes ever.

In Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That? Ina proves once again that it doesn’t take complicated techniques, special equipment, or stops at more than one grocery store to make wonderful dishes for your family and friends. Her newest must-have cookbook is all about saving time and avoiding stress while having fun in the kitchen.
 
These are not recipes with three ingredients thrown together in five minutes; instead home cooks will find fantastic Barefoot Contessa recipes that are easy to make but still have all that deep, delicious flavor Ina is known for—and that makes a meal so satisfying. Think Pink Grapefruit Margaritas served with Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs—two classics with a twist. For lunch, Ina makes everyone’s favorite Ultimate Grilled Cheese sandwich and Snap Peas with Pancetta. For dinner, try Jeffrey’s Roast Chicken (tried and true!); Steakhouse Steaks, which come out perfectly every time and—with Ina’s easy tip—couldn’t be simpler; or an Easy Parmesan “Risotto” that you throw in the oven instead of stirring endlessly on the stovetop. Finally, Ina’s desserts never disappoint—from Red Velvet Cupcakes to Chocolate Pudding Cream Tart.
 
To top it all off, Ina also shares her best tips for making cooking really easy. She leaves bowls of lemons and limes on the counter not only because they look great but because they also remind her that a squeeze of lemon in a dish brightens the flavors. She shows us the equipment that makes a difference to her—like sharp knives, the right zester, an extra bowl for her electric mixer—and that can help you in your kitchen, too.

Love Ina!

Okay, so I don't cook, or I should say I never used to cook. I always believed that I just didn't have the skills to make anything but tasteless food. I watched the cooking shows and it all looked so complicated. I never had all the ingredients and when I did try I always missed some essential step that I SHOULD have known. I bought Ina's cookbook- family style and tried to make Chicken Parmesan with my husband. Let me tell you, it was AMAZING and easy to make! Ina's recipes are easy to follow and she details every step so you don't miss a thing. I tried other recipes in her cookbooks and discovered many of the recipes use the same ingredients. All of a sudden I had the ability to cook without planning 2 days before. Thank you Ina! I strongly recommend her cookbooks. Wondering if you should pay 20 bucks for a cookbook? The answer is hell yes!!!!!
