Read Barefoot Contessa: How Easy Is That? Online Free - #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
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.

I loved the introductory material where she explains how she creates her recipes and makes them simple and uses amounts of ingredients that match the container sizes they come in. She talks about her ingredients being readily available at the market.
I knew I was in trouble when I began thumbing t...

The title is a misnomer. There are some recipes that seem genuinely easy, others not so much. Some sound like worth trying until you realize a visit to a speciality food store is in order. For example, the brand name white chocolate used in the "white chocolate bark" recipe as regular chocolate c...

I picked this up at the same time as Barefoot Contessa at home. My complaint with this book is pretty much the same as the other book. This is a book for foodies, not someone who wants easy to prepare dishes that a family including kids will eat. We are not eating foie gras in our house. I had to...

*I gave this book the same review as Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics because I had the same experience with both books.
I do appreciate the simplicity of the Barefoot Contessa books. This book seems designed to create company-worthy food with a minimum of fuss and muss, and provides great entert...

The theme of this cookbook is ease. Unlike other cookbooks (like Rachael Ray 30 min meals, etc), this one has quality recipes and ideas for making entertaining easy. I probably wouldn't make her recipes during the week for my family - they are filled with butter and calories, etc, but they are ex...

The recipe for chipotle and rosemary roasted nuts is reason alone to acquire this cookbook! Add the roasted summer vegetables, the flat beans with pecorino, tomatoes roasted with pesto, red velvet cupcakes (and associated frosting, natch), and the old-fashioned banana cake (with cream cheese fros...

I love all the Barefoot Contessa's cookbooks, so of course I loved this book as well. Her recipes are elegantly rustic and she never makes them too complicated - although her ingredients can be pricey. Would definitely recommend the Weeknight Bolognese from this cookbook as it turned out deliciou...
