Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Of all my cookbooks, this is the one I turn to again and again for inspiration and recipes that never disappoint. Her suggested variations extend the cookbook even more, and sections on stocking your pantry were very useful. I also love all the menus in the back that tie the recipes together and make entertaining a snap. Also, if you like pictures, the photography in this book is wonderful, especially since everything you make from this really is that beautiful!
I have this cookbook and like it so much that I bought 2 for Christmas gifts. The recipes are "seriously simple" and seriously delicious!!
