As a fan, it would be hard for me to give this book a bad review. But, if you are looking to learning how to cook or improve your cooking skills, this wouldn't be the book for you. For instance, on page 44 is the heading Measure like a Pro with photos on the opposite page of measuring cups and a scale. This is where I would expect her to sing the praises of weighing ingredients vs. using measuring cups, but the photo’s caption simply states “Use a scale to accurately measure weights.” None of her recipes provides weights in addition to measuring by volume. Instead, I have been using Chef Jai Scovers' cookbook reference guide, "Conquer Your Kitchen" for the last year. Who knew I had been cooking a lot of my meals including past wrong for years? Who really knew the difference between baking soda and baking powder? Or how long raw eggs will last in your refrigerator? What is "resting time?" Or what is the proper temperature to cook chicken? My recommendation is that you buy, buy, buy Conquer Your Kitchen by Chef Jai Scovers or borrow it from your local library. If you want a recipe for lemon ricotta pancakes or simply love Ina, then this is the book for you. Hope that helps.!

I sent this signed book to my sister for a Christmas present. She has already made several of the recipes. She loves the book and the recipes in it.

I always enjoy her cooking. Love watching her do her thing. The recipes in this one are interesting, but the overall experience is a little boring.

I have all of Ina Garten's books and I have used all of them time and time again. I am disappointed for the first time in one of her books. There are a handful of recipes I may try, but many look over-the-top in the spice department.
