    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.

    Filled with 225 gorgeous full-color photographs, Barefoot Contessa How Easy is That? is the perfect kitchen companion for busy home cooks who still want fabulous flavor.

    • Great cookbook

      I loved the cookbook as I love Ina Garten. The recipes are good but I expected to see more 'down-to-earth' recipes instead of gourmet type, exquisite culinary recipes. Most of of folks do ordinary cooking and baking and would prefer recipes that are more in the comfort zone. I would buy another of Ina Garten's books and I have Paula Deen's cookbook which is fabulous.

    • Barefoot Contess How Easy Is That?

      If you've been reading my reviews on the Ina Garten books that I've purchased, you know I am a great fan of hers and of the books. All are well written, beautifully photographed, and everything my friends and I have tried has turned out great. (Really, everything I've tried so far, has been delicious!) Between myself and my friends, at least one recipe has been tried from each of her books, and since we share our experiences, I have many post-its on recipes I an eager to try.
