I am a bit of a cookbook junkie. I have all six of Ina Garten's cookbooks and use them all the time. Every single recipe of the many I tried so far have worked fabulously - unlike a lot of other cookbooks where it is a "hit and miss" effort. I especially like how she boils each recipe down to the essence and explains everything in detail. I have no hesitation in highly recommending all of her cookbooksBarefoot Contessa at Home: Everyday Recipes You'll Make Over and Over AgainThe Barefoot Contessa CookbookBarefoot Contessa Family Style: Easy Ideas and Recipes That Make Everyone Feel Like FamilyBarefoot Contessa Parties!: Ideas and Recipes for Easy Parties That Are Really FunBarefoot in Paris: Easy French Food You Can Make at Home. From this particular book, so far I tried her roasted potato leek soup - heavenly, white pizza with arugula - instant family classic, herb marinated loin of pork - great for parties and everyone's favorite, wild mushroom risotto - amazing depth of flavours, french apple tart - wonderful foolproof pastry for anyone (even baking beginners like myself), country french omelet - my husband's fave, homemade granola - flavourful snack to take to work. I am slowly working through all the recipes, knowing that if I follow the instructions, the results will be a notch above great. Thanks again, Ina.

The Barefoot Contessa's back to Basics is full of great recipes. Everything I have made from the book has turned out to be good. Still working on trying more of the recipes. Unfortunately, some of the ingredients are impossible to to find. Other than that, it is a fun book.

I own all of Ina Garten's cook books and have purchased many over and over again as gifts. This book is one of those books. The first food items we made were for a dinner party hosted for friends. We loved the recipes we tried; Cape cod Chopped salad,Roasted Turkey roulade and pumpkin roulade with ginger buttercream were all well received. I have also made the Parmesan-roasted broccoli and easy French apple tart. I love how the recipes have wonderful photographs that always make the recipes more appealing. She also gives helpful tips in all of her cookbooks for entertaining. I will look forward to making more of the recipes here and hope you enjoy it too!

I watch the Barefoot Contessa every weekend when I'm home. The cookbook is like listening to her speak. She explains everything in easy to understand terms. When i watch her show I wonder if the book wasn't taken from the actual episodes because I could swear she said that exact same thing last weekend, I thought when reading a recipe.
The recipes have wonderful pictures to accompany the ingredients and instructions. It is back to basics for anyone who wants to cook and present really nice meals without spending hours in the kitchen doing so. I highly recommend this book.

I really enjoy cooking with Ina's recipes. She makes cooking so approachable and easily broke down into understandable steps. Her use of fresh, good quality ingredients is respectable. There is something wonderful and cozy feeling about her books. The pictures are lovely. When you follow her easy instructions, the end result looks exactly like the picture - which I find very rewarding. The quality of the book itself is something to mention. The pages of this book are thick & glossy, they feel wonderful to the touch. I have plenty of stains already in this book, as I have attempted and proudly succeeded at many of her recipes. This book is one of my favourites in my collection. Fresh, easy, delicious, and very elegant cooking!!

I really enjoyed this cookbook. Both reading it and creating the recipes. I have tried several and everything has turned out just the way it looked in the picture. We just loved Parkers Beef Stew. I also like the tips at the start of each chapter. Great all around book.

I saw Anna & Christina use this book on their show, Anna & Christina's Grocery Bag. I bought it on their recommendation and I really like it. It is a good size, the pictures are helpful, and the recipes make good-tasting food. What I like best is that it inspired me to try new flavours in foods I already like. I used the marinade for herb-marinated loin of pork for braised shoulder chops and they were delicious. I tried the seasonings in roasted butternut squash soup for a soup made with leftover squash. It was very tasty. I used haddock in the easy sole meuniere recipe and liked it a lot.
So, I suppose the best part is the inspiration for everyday meals made better with minimum effort. I had lost my passion in the kitchen and this book rekindled it.
