First I will say I love cookbooks! Secondly, Ina Garten has been a favorite of mine for so long now I can't even remember when I first saw her. I watch her religiously on the Food Network channel whenever she's on. This may sound odd, but for me she has a comforting nature. When I watch her show...

I'm going to think of this one as the fennel and dill book because...

I've already tried a number of recipes in this book, but I'm starting from scratch (so to speak) so I can fully enjoy all of the wonderful tips, anecdotes and lovely photographs from cover to cover.

Author, culinary icon Ina Garten presents a beautiful palate of expertise (common sense), elegance without complications and easy recipes with great photos which will enable anyone to become a wonderful cook. While her process for making a turkey is not in this book I would recommend it and all i...
