I have now purchased all the Ina Garten Cookbooks. I discovered that several of my co-workers have her books and love them and I was not disappointed. Every recipe has a photo with it so you know what the dish is supposed to turn out like. If you never cook a single recipe, you will enjoy just reading these books.

This cook book is awesome! To create quick delicious meals that are healthy for you and your family there is no better deal out there than this book. Also the fact that you can cook a different meal each night of the year (if you wanted to).

We've tried more than half a dozen recipes, and were happy with all but one. Not being happy with a recipe is kind of an issue when you're making enough to freeze for several meals in the future, but that's the risk you take. Once you've put in the initial effort, the convenience is amazing. We plan to try most of the rest of the recipes in the future, and modify as necessary to suit the picky eaters in the family. For a busy family with no time to cook during the week, this is a marvelous resource. We'd tried other, similar, recipe books in the past, but this is the best by far.

The book was delivered quickly and has many delicious recipes. I am a big fan of their restaurant but must say eating there is expensive so if you want to save some money, buy the book.

The cookbook SOS six oclock scramble to the rescue I bought has a lot of different recipes. Its good for someone that is busy and has kids that needs to go places fast, but tasty. I bought the book because I have a friend that made the book and other people added recipes to her to make the book. She has another book the first one Six 'oclock scramble that is great too. I also have that book. A lot of people have made recipes out of the book and they like the dishes a lot. I would recommend people to buy the book. and see for themselves what the book is and how great it is.

OK cookbook but not quite what I expected. Since I am a southener I expected more things I was familiar with.

I am just an average cook, but this cookbook improved my skills in cooking and baking. My mother was a great cook, but she guessed at measurements, so it was very hard for her to teach anyone. With this cookbook, I followed the directions and also added a few tips from my mother on seasonings and spices. I have gotten high reviews on some of the recipes I have mastered.

I bought this book for my brother who had recently decided to try the vegan lifestyle. He has always been a picky eater and very quickly grew tired of the same old tofu and imitation products. The Vegan Italiano cookbook provided a great naturally vegan alternative which my brother actually enjoyed. Overall this was a great book and I would recommend it to anyone who is either vegan or knows someone who is.

This is my favorite cooking references and family adult entertainment. Both are accomplished chefs and teir interactions are both informative, instructional, and immenselt intertaining. They both play-off each other's biases regarding cooking techniques in a humerous way; very funny. Technically both the book and the DVD's are excellent; superior quality in every catagory. I hope they plan on reprints for my future plans to purchase again as gifts for my children.

I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but I'm looking forward to. This is a fun cookbook. Lots of tasty looking food and plenty of color pictures from The Pioneer Woman's family, kitchen, and ranch. Great book for those that love cooking down-home food.

Few kitchen appliances provide the ease and convenience of food preparation like a slow cooker. Sometimes called crock pots, slowcookers can easily cook a delicious one-pot meal for a whole family: just add the ingredients to the slow cooker early in the day; turn the appliance on; and the crockpot does the work for you. Selecting a slow cooker requires some consideration because slow cookers come in numerous sizes and offer a myriad of different features, so it's important to consider what size and features you want before buying.

Having cooking tools that they can use will make this time together in the kitchen safe and fun.

Stinking Rose -- perhaps this is not the most popular title for a poem; nonetheless, garlic has plenty of qualities to praise. This bulb was used by the ancient Egyptians as far back as 2080 B.C. for both culinary and medicinal purposes. It's still important in herbal medicine. Of course, garlic still makes good food even better, and every great cook has a garlic press among their kitchen tools. April 19 is National Garlic Day in the United States, but you can celebrate garlic anytime with some tasty recipes and fun facts.

All too often, kitchen and dining room tables become a catchall for things, often because of a lack of organization and storage options. When children come home from school, the jackets and backpacks land on the kitchen table as kids head to the refrigerator. After doing several loads of laundry, clean clothes can end up on the dining room table. Mail, bills, books, phone chargers and accessories seem to migrate to this location over time. Cleaning off the dining room table can give your family back a space to come together and socialize without the presence of a TV.

Passover is a Jewish festival that begins at sunset on the 14th day of the Jewish calendar month "Nisan," which falls in March or April. The holiday, called Pesach in Hebrew, commemorates and retells the story of the Hebrews' emancipation from slavery under Pharaoh and their Exodus from Egypt under the leadership of Moses. In the days leading to the Hebrews' flight from Egypt, God afflicted the Egyptians with 10 plagues, the final one being the death of the firstborn of Egypt. To protect the Hebrews from the final plague, God instructed them to apply the blood of a spring lamb to the posts of their doorways. He would then "pass over" these homes.
