Okay, She Annoys Me But....
I can't stand that 'I wanna be your pal' thing she does and some of her recipes and food handling is SCARY. But I admit that I bought this and I use it in a pinch. Sometimes I adapt the recipes, using real food like fresh tomatoes instead of canned or making a real cake (which takes about 7 minutes longer than stirring up a cake mix, FYI.)This is NOT any great culinary offering but you don't always have time...Was this review helpful?

The show is better than the book
I watch the show all the time and get the recipes online. I was so excited about the book. But in the introduction, she said that she tried to use ingredients that are readily available and that even 'kids' can cook-- I'm 18 and live in a small southern town. I can't get good Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, or pancetta, or all these flavored liqueurs. They're just not available to me. I guess the food is good, but I don't know, since so many of her 'readily available' ingredients aren't so available when you leave New York City.Was this review helpful?
