Barefoot Contessa is back with a new cookbook and I could not be more excited. The cookbook is named how easy is that?. My mom and I share the same love of reading cookbooks and I’m sure she is heading over right after she reads this post to buy this new one. The passion to cook comes from my mother but also comes from Ina Garten (“the Barefoot Contessa”). Many of the recipes my mom makes that I love have come from the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks and TV show. I will name just a few for you: Chocolate Chunk Cookies, String Beans with Shallots, Tequila Lime Chicken, and the Parmesan Chicken (my little brother has requested this more times than I count). I cannot give you too much of a review yet because I just got the cookbook , but I did see her on the Today Show on Tuesday. Her Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake looked delish. Here is a link to the article and it has recipes! (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/39837298/ns/today-foodwine ) My mom says that the Barefoot Contessa Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake will be an addition to the Seligman Thanksgiving Dessert Table this year. (I’m sure it will be fantastic!) I have looked into pricing on this cookbook and I found that I got the best deal at Borders but they do also carrry it at Barnes and Noble, Books A Million, and Amazon.
