I was excited when I heard about this book, pre-ordered it and anxiously waited for it to arrive. OH -- I should have waited to read the reviews and perhaps 'take a look inside'. There are only about half a dozen recipes I would even consider making - the (make ahead?) dog biscuits being the one of the best.

A good quarter of the recipes are for desserts. I don't know about you, but I'm not usually pulling out the flour and mixer to make dessert as company arrives. I'd say MOST desserts ARE make ahead, including cookies. Other categories include cocktails, breakfast, lunch, dinner and appetizers - 7 to 8 recipes in each section. Standard sections on food safety and freezing foods are included; this info found easily on the internet.

Three stars for lovely photos, pretty cover and nice layout.
Deducted stars for some either odd or ho-hum recipes (chicken stock, winter slaw, brownies, cookies) .

Ina Garten remarked, in the very first paragraph, that she asked her assistant what questions people were writing to her about.
I think Ina should start reading her own mail, and perhaps think a bit more about each new book idea now. She kind of missed the mark on this one.

I have 3 books from Ina Garten and simply love them. I was a little disappointed with this one. I found no new exciting recipe. But it does explain well how to make things ahead of time.

Just bought the book A 'second chance sale' for Ina Garten (her Barefoot Contessa title proved as having mediocre recipes)
Just tonight I made her 'Sour Cream Corn Bread'.
Followed her recipe Fastidiously
Out of the Oven it looks great .
However it tastes Awful ! period.
A Greasy Salt lick masquerading as a Bread. Genuinely unpleasant/inedible
The 3/4 cup of Sour cream AND a Half pound of unsalted butter Ensures a Grease pudding melange.
The Woman has some unnatural addiction to Salt.. this recipe calls for 1 TABLESPOON.. At least 4 X! a Sane amount.
Your $$ Your taste buds
My opinion: Avoid this book at all costs

I just devour Ina's books. This one was no exception. ...and I'm not just saying this because I just made and drank 2 of the Cranberry Martinis from Page 27.

I have all of Ina's cookbooks and like them all but some of her recipes are more rich than others as she likes baking with butter as I do myself.

Another one for Ina. I didn't find as many recipes as I usually do in most of her cookbooks that I liked. Good just the same.
