Crown Publishing Group | October 26, 2010 | Hardcover

Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That?: Fabulous Recipes & Easy Tips is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inspiring... and I'm hungry now! I just picked up a copy of this book, after watching many of her programs on The Food Network. Right now, I'm making the turkey meatballs. While I didn't have all of the ingredients, I'm trying to make it anyway and so far, they smell so good!! will report back once they're done and we've tried them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius! Ina Garten is a genius! Her recipes are very family friendly. I love her cookbooks, she knows what hostess go through when they're hosting a party and gives such good advice on preparing for company, table settings, meal suggestions and more. I highly recommend her new cookbook "how easy is that" and in fact I recommend all of her cookbooks! No one comes close. Paula
