    Wow…what a great deal! Spread the word!!! I love Ina!!!

    Me, me, pick me! I am in desperate need of quick easy recipes 🙂 Her spring green risotto is one of my favorites. It is a comfort food with just enough veggies in it to call it healthy-ish. The dish is easy to make, yet comes across as a bit more sophisticated for company.

  3. How in the world do you narrow it down to one recipe 🙂 I guess I’d have to say her mustard fish. She’s such a master of making a simple recipe taste complicated. If I win (fingers and toes crossed!!!) please leave a note on my blog since emails come in at the rate of about 200 a day and I regularly miss things… and unfortunately, my blog doesn’t generate that kind of enthusiasm – lol. Thanks!! Kate @

  4. I’ve liked you on Facebook and would be so grateful if you’d like me back – Kate@kateiscooking

    I love Ina’s apple crisp! Just thinking about it makes me want to make some with fresh, in season apples… Yum!

  7. Kim

    I love her brownies, so sinfully good

  8. Chrissy

    I want one!!! I already follow you on FB, and I don’t “do” twitter (I don’t really get it). Does that still count??? I did post a link on FB though!!! 🙂 I like THIS one…and I want to make it tomorrow. yum!

    By far, my favorite recipe is Ina’s roasted chicken over fall vegetables. Really great dinner for family or for entertaining … even picky eaters. Pair it up with the super fantastic Guyere mac and cheese and simple asparagus bundles and you’re the new hostess with the mostest!

  10. Nora

    Me! Me! I love Ina AND 8.ate@eight!! Her chicken bouillabaisse is one of my favorites, though it is hard to narrow down. Now that winter is here, it is just the perfect thing for a slow cooking Sunday.

  11. Suzanne Kelly

    I loved the pumpkin cupcakes; made them for two groups of friends and they were a huge hit! I don’t have any of Ina’s cookbooks and hope I can add this one to my growing collection.

    this one is my favorite. – but mommy has to leave out the butter b/c i’m allergic to dairy. – i love ina- i’ve been watching her since I was 2 months old.

    pick me pick me pick me!

  13. Trish

    She has so many to choose from so here is a new one I can’t wait to try!

  14. Veronica DiLaura

    Ina Garten has a way of making all her recipes sound so doable and they are. One that is very doable, but sometimes scares people is filet of beef. When she says roast for exactly 25 minutes for med.rare…that’s what you do and it is perfect !! I also love that she has so many pictures in her book…beautiful and helpful.

  15. Cathy

    Well…it’s such a tough choice because everything she does is just scrumptious!!! So I had to choose something chocolate : )♥
    Her Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes are wonderful and EZ. That’s what I LOVE about her. EZ!!! How EZ is that? Yummy too.
    Pick me, pick me, pick me.♥♥♥♥♥

    My favorite Barefoot Contessa dish would either be the Roasted Fruit (soooo yummy and so good with pound cake and whipped cream) or my favorite standby, garlic roasted potatoes. I make the potatoes every Easter with our salmon, egg bake and caramel rolls. Delicious!

  18. KR

    I love Ina’s Lemon Chicken with Croutons recipe from her Paris cookbook. I made it for my roommates and it turned out great. It was very easy to make too.

  19. Amy L

    I love her recipe for Maple-Roasted Butternut Squash. It makes a great fall side dish, and is so yummy! This was the first butternut squash recipe I’ve tried that everyone in my family liked.

    My only complaint about her Chicken Pot Pie recipe and her Turkey Meatloaf recipe is that I can’t eat them every day. Well, I could, but I’d need to wear elastic pants. Love Love Love Ina.

  23. Alison

    Her lemon squares are my favorite. I make them every Thanksgiving and they are always a hit! I want this book…

  24. Congratulations Nora! The proud new owner of Ina Garten’s Cookbook How Easy Is That? I hope this inspires many delicious Sunday dinners. Thanks for participating and sharing the 8.ate@eight love.

    Her Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits I’m a breader

    I love Ina’s Lobster Potpie recipe! She’s the best!
