I took this photo for a friend after she and I had talked cookbooks and I raved about how everything I’ve ever made out of these has been fantastic.
(Can you tell I’m a little OCD and that they have to be in rainbow-order AT ALL TIMES? My mug collection is like that, too. I can’t stop myself from rearranging them each time I empty the dishwasher.)
Cookbooks that can double as decor! Genius.
Anyway, just thought I’d share. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, into gourmet food or just good home cookin’, look no further than the Barefoot Contessa. Each one reads like a book (at least they do to me) and the wealth of information I’ve gleaned is unreal. She’s taught me how to steam potatoes, cook steak and get the chocolatey-est chocolate flavor ever. Seriously, everything I’ve learned about cooking has been from the Food Network and Ina Garten herself. She is my hero.
So, if you’re so inclined, go out and grab one for your collection today…or all eight.
