it was amazing

I love this cookbook! Barefoot Back to Basics has the same great narration by Ina Garten and wonderful recipes that you will easily make over again for family and company. Back to basics is simply Ina's way of taking "ordinary ingredients and cooking them or pairing them in a way that unlocks their true flavors." A hint of lemon zest, a dash of cinnamon, a hint of basil etc.. Great appetizers include; roasted shrimp cocktail, parmesan and thyme crackers and the bookclub favorite of pomegranite cosmopolitans. My kids love the easy white pizzas with homemade crust and arugula salad...it's easy..really and the pasta with pecorino and pepper. Desserts include; yummy brownie pudding and pumpkin roulade with ginger buttercream...There are many more favorites, all I find are easy to prepare and taste great. A really great addition and investment in your cookbook collection.
