Book Description

Oct. 26 2010
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.

easy cranberry & apple cake
Serves 6 to 8
12 ounces fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked over for stems
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and diced
½ cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 tablespoon grated orange zest (2 oranges)
¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
11⁄8 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
2 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
¼ pound (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ cup sour cream
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Combine the cranberries, apple, brown sugar, orange zest, orange juice, and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the eggs on medium-high speed for 2 minutes. With the mixer on medium, add 1 cup of the granulated sugar, the butter, vanilla, and sour cream and beat just until combined. On low speed, slowly add the flour and salt.
Pour the fruit mixture evenly into a 10-inch glass pie plate. Pour the batter over the fruit, covering it completely. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar and 1⁄8 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle it over the batter. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean and the fruit is bubbling around the edges. Serve warm or at room temperature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another "keeper" cookbook from Ina Garten Nov. 15 2010
By Iveta
I have eagerly awaited the release of Ina Garten's pre-Christmas, pre-New Year cookbook. I finally got it on Friday and, as with every single of her books, have not been disappointed. I have read a lot of bellyaching reviews from people who felt that this book should have more "new" recipes etc., and - fair enough - some of the recipes are reworked recipes from previous books, but it is a beautiful book with great recipes that never fail, great photographs of each dish (not just a few dishes) and great advice on how to stay calm, organized and collected when entertaining. Not everyone has Ina's previous books and there still is a lot of really really good recipes that are new. I actually sometimes like to have a variation of an old classic as in my busy day I don't have time to experiment with new takes on dishes that I like. All of Ina's cookbooks are heavily used in my kitchen and this one will soon have splatters of sauces and butter stains, too: ) The garlic roasted cauliflower, the pear apple sauce, the rich beef barley soup and the greek panzanella are only a few of amazingly good recipes that alone are worth the purchase price of the book. Thanks again, Ina.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of the recipes Nov. 28 2010
In my opinion, this is a really nice cookbook, beautiful photographs for each recipes which I really like. Well written and and easy recipes as the title says. Highly recommend. By the way, I do not agree with previous comments; people do not buy cookbook to get morals from how they should eat or live. They just want good recipes with flavour in order to appreciate a nice good meal at home. Bravo Ina and keep the good work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Book of Amazing Recipes Dec 26 2010
Another GREAT cookbook by Ina Garten. Many a recipe to create memorable moments around the table with family and friends. Always a pleasure to read and cook from Ina's books. The negative review on this book is just silly. People can be overweight and still healthy. The obesity problem in this country can't be solved or lessened by one person alone and is not at all Ina's responsibility. It is my opinion that it is up to the people themselves to make a change in their own lives. Everyone has choices in this life. People choose what to cook and what to put in their mouths. Portion control is also an option. Ina is not to blame for their issues. If you don't like the recipes in this book...don't buy it. There are plenty a book out there to satisfy the likes of people that wish to eat vegetarian meals etc. This book and the rest of Ina's collection are top notch. I wouldn't change a thing.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I gave this book to my 16 year old daughter who is just starting to develop an interest in cooking. She has cooked several of the dishes. All have been well within her capacity and have turned out very well. I recommend this to any beginning cook looking to extend their range.
