To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love Ina's television show- I thought I would be cooking from the recipes in her cookbook daily. But I only found one recipe in the entire book I would cook for my family. I know everyone has different taste but I was disappointed in this book.
I like Ina Garten and her TV show. However, this was not one of her better books. Perhaps because it was one of her earlier ones. It was mainly meat and potato offerings and a lot of butter, cream and fat!! I don't see one recipe that appeals enough for me to make from this book. Very unhealthy.
I love The Barefoot Contessa's first cookbook, and Ina Garten's second book Parties is nice as well. This third book is most disappointing. The recipes are so simple, and who needs a recipe for French toast? and a whole section on kid's recipes. I love her shop in the Hampton's, and some of her recipes are staples in my home. I would not bother with this latest book.
I love Ina Garten...however this cookbook had very few recipes that I would actually make. We entertain a lot and I thought this cookbook would be full of great recipes to serve to friends....but not so much. I'm frankly kind of disappointed in it.
