Coming Up: Ina Garten Week!

4 Dec

Like the author of 101 Cookbooks, I, too have a bookshelf full of cookbooks I rarely open. And like her, I am drawn by the call of cookbooks I don’t yet own. In an attempt to save money and save my bookshelf from near collapse, I’ve decided to calm my cravings at the public library. Actually, this idea came after a recent trip to the library that started with one book sought and ended with five in my hand. I’m sure you can relate.

So, I’m thinking of blogging week-long entries on the various cookbooks I check out, starting with Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa Family Style.

    2. The love of books
    3. The admiration of the Bare Foot Contessa and her contagious smile !!

    Ina’s food is quite good, definitely worth emulating. She doesn’t skimp on the good stuff in cooking – Fat. Butter, cream, eggs – Bring it on. 🙂 And she prescribes high quality ingredients, no wonder she is a Contessa. 😉
