I am a huge fan of cookbook author Ina Garten, and happily confess that I own every one of her fabulous cookbooks (all six!). Her recipes are easy, elegant and ideal for entertaining or family meals. So, it's no surprise that I was thrilled to hear that her next cookbook will be released in October.
With a collection of six cookbooks, I found I was spending lots of time having to go through each book when I was looking for a particular recipe. That was until I discovered she has a combined recipe index, listed by category, directing you to the cookbook where you can find each recipe. As Ina would say, "How great is that!?" I printed it off straight away and it has been a lifesaver! I thought I'd pass along the link in the event there are other Barefoot Contessa fans out there who do not know about this wonderful resource. You can find it here. Now if only I could move to East Hampton and have Ina as my neighbor.
