I would love to win a copy of this book! I haven't tried many of Ina's recipes, but I've heard great things and have been wanting to try more.

Suburban Princess said...

I love Ina! I think her books are the best cookbooks! I dont have this one but I would love to get it!
Good luck to everyone who enters!

Trish said...

Love her...I've tried many of her recipes and they are all great! My family loves the homemade marshmallows the best. So much more flavor than store bought.

Courtney said...

Love her show! Of all the cookbooks I have, I don't have any of hers. Send this my way please!!

Just discovered your delicious blog through Layla at The Lettered Cottage. Oh my! I'm in trouble now! I have subscribed and let me tell you, Ina Garten is one of my favorites. I make her meatloaf recipe every week for our family and many more of her recipes. To tell the truth, she is the one responsible for helping me overcome my fear of cooking and the kitchen - something I experienced since childhood. Hope to glean even more confidence and knowledge on your yummy blog!

Shelly said...

Oh dear hostess...I've been following you now for quite some time, and of course I love Ina...she got me with her shrimp bisque.

Sarah Ann said...

I just discovered your blogs today and I am smitten! There are so many useful things on here that will come in handy for the future. I am a newlywed so I have many family dinners, parties, and such I could use all the help to prepare for!

mcnairy said...

Just found your blog via The Lettered Cottage and added it to my google reader. Luv The Barefoot Contessa.

nannykim said...

Ok--sign me up for trying to win a copy, kiddo. I looked the book up on Amazon and they gave a recipe for sweet potato baked fries...that makes me want to delve deeper. (I am mostly Vegan--so a lot of her recipes won't be for me....but it still looks to be a good read---on tv she tends to use butter as a constant ingredient which my cholesterol levels would say NO to!! I think she must get paid by the American Dairy association!!! YIKES--my MIL and I had a joke about what she will use the butter in today!). I am signing as a follower right after commenting here, kiddieo

Meghan said...

I just signed up to follow.
I had you saved in my favs & then had a sligh mishap w/ my computer & everything was lost.

Thankfully I found you again!!

Thans for the chance to win.

As Food Network addicts, my husband and I are long time fans of The Barefoot Contessa. We're more recent fans of your blog, but are already impressed. Naturally we'd love to add this book to our library, but either way we definitely plan on checking in with your blog on a regular basis. Good stuff!
