Ina describes the book by saying it is all about “saving you time and avoiding stress”, and as long as the food is delicious, I have to say my kitchen will most likely be receiving a new book in the near future. Filled with tried and true recipes straight from the Barefoot Contessa kitchen, each recipe is full of flavor with the kinks worked out so that you will want to include them in your regular repertoire.
An addition that I loved in her last cookbook Back to Basics that she is including again in this book are tips, ideas and suggestions that help to make cooking and entertaining simpler and more enjoyable.
Below are a few recipes that are included. If you’d like to look at the recipes of either, just click on the image and if you’d like to order a copy of the book for yourself, click here.
