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.
This eBook edition of Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That? takes easy to a whole new level. Here is Ina’s cookbook on your handheld device—plus hundreds of brand-new tips for shopping. At your office and thinking about dinner? The recipes are with you so you can make a shopping list. At a your mother-in-law’s and want to make the Mocha Chocolate Ice Box Cake? You’ll have the recipe at your fingertips! Your husband’s shopping and wants to know how to choose a ripe pear? Click on the ingredient and there are instructions. Not sure what tarragon looks like?

    I just bought this book for my iPad. I'm so excited to try some of these recipes that I know I never would have otherwise. I'm not an adventurous cook but after reviewing the recipes in this book, I think I can do it! I was an average middle class mom chef, had decent food on the table every night, mostly with some nutritional value but not always mouth watering!! Now that my husband is retired and we are tired of the same old dinners, I can't wait to try these recipes without feeling like a failure. They seem simple but what I'm sure my husband and friends will think is gourmet compared to my usual fare. I tend not to try recipes that have a long list of ingredients and a longer list of steps! I love that I can click on an ingredient (on my ipad2) and see a picture of the item,which will be wonderful in the grocery store. For the most part the ingredients are common and if not, it's something I wish I had known about. I love all the tips and the pictures! Thank you Ina for letting me experience cooking and enjoying it, in the last stage of my life!!
