If you now me then you know I am a huge fan of Ina Garten, I mean not only is the women a great cook, she is an entrepreneurial wiz and an entertaining guru, and although I don't know her personally, she seems like she would be a basket of fun to hang out with-enough said. I envy how effortlessly she seams to whip up her recipes on her shows, mixing this, and adding a dash of that all while offering tips and trick of the trade. I find myself totally immersed when she is on, it's like I'm in her kitchen and she's a dear friend, the conversation, the atmosphere, and the meal is casual not contrived, as easy going as the slow moving bicycles that meander down the streets of the Hamptons (where her show is filmed). So it will come as no shock to know that I am slowly amassing a growing collection of Ina Garten cookbooks. One of my favourites and the first cookbook of Ina's that I purchased is "Fool Proof", though I enjoy them all. I have to say, not only have I made numerous of her recipes, all of which were delicious, but I sometimes just open and flip through the pages of them just to study the absolutely stunning pictures within. You'll find gorgeous food presentations and equally stunning scenes depicting breezy summer days spent in the Hamptons, fresh food markets, and gatherings. All of Ina's recipes and books are lovely, not super difficult to follow and create-absolutely perfect for everyday meals to special gatherings and they make wonderful gifts for any cook. If you don't already own one, you need to!
