    Wow - Ina definitely had to crank out another book on a publishers timeline. I picked this up at a bookstore -not impressed. Two pages dedicated to Shishito Peppers - take peppers, sautee whole in a pan with olive oil, salt and a squeeze of lime? Ok Ina - enjoy life in the Hamptons and...

    Cook Like a Pro: Recipes And Tips for Home Cooks is chock full of delicious recipes with fresh ingredients for a home cook who cooks and bakes with infused love. However, the recipes are not the star of this cookbook by Ina. The tips for successful dishes are more important and I found...

    I don't normally watch Ina Garten, but I did recently see one of her shows with recipes I wanted to try, so I figured I would check out this book. While she did give some tips, there definitely weren't as many "pro tips" as the title would imply - there was a page at the beginning of e...

    My newest cookbook! I especially like the way some of the recipes make two different meals, such as Baked Pasta with tomatoes and eggplant that becomes Tomato and Eggplant Soup on the next night. She also includes recipes for the side dishes she recommends, such as the Blue Cheese Grit...

    I'm a huge Ina fan - I love watching her shows, reading her cookbooks (I have a few of them), and making some of her recipes. I'm glad I got this cookbook at the library instead of purchasing it - there wasn't one single recipe that interested me. Either they were too simplistic or els...

    This is a beautiful book, and Ina is super gracious as always. I love her warm tone, backstories and the photography is spot on. She gives decent amounts of tips and tricks at the beginning of the book and at the beginning of each chapter, specific to that kind of recipe. One of the re...

    Self-taught chef, gourmet food shop owner, author Ina Garten aka the Barefoot Contessa presents a beautiful cook book. For the last several years I've relied on Garten's technique to cook a Thanksgiving turkey; it's the best ever. I regularly watch her show on Sunday mornings because I...

    Nothing shows the huge difference between the life I have and the life I want like an Ina Garten cookbook. This cookbook is a good blend of recipes I could make and recipes I?d never tackle, but a woman can dream . . . ...

    This is the latest cookbook from Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa. The premise is to combine recipes with tips she has learned over the years for cooking and baking. The tips are the best part and I would recommend this book to a newlywed or someone who is new to cooking and wants to ...

    I'll always get these cookbooks. I love having a photo for every recipe and each one is simple to prepare with always on-hand ingredients. Most are ready in 20-30 minutes. We have great cocktails appetizers for entertaining or small meals. Lots of salads and a delicious soup. Killer ch...

    I bought this book and returned it the same day. After flipping through it, I realized I had only stuck a post-it on about 5-6 recipes. Everything looked good, but there was nothing new and exciting. I was willing to keep it though (because I hate paying return shipping on Amazon), unt...

    I have yet to try an Ina Garten recipe that fails. That being said, this collection is not one of my favorites. I did find over a dozen recipes I will try at some point but though they might be professional standards, I won't be making beef carpaccio or warm lobster rolls at home any t...

    I have all of Ina?s cookbooks prior to this one. I love the idea of Ina?s recipes, but must admit I haven?t tried many of her recipes. This cookbook proves no exception. Except I didn?t buy this one. Honestly, I?d probably only make about 4 of these recipes. I?d be more tha...

    I appreciate the tips throughout the book but the recipes didn?t grab me like her books usually do. I like the concept but wish she?d go back to cooking for her friends! Having a party is what makes Ina fun and approachable. ...

    Just when you think that Ina Garten can't possibly have anything new or inspiring to teach you, she comes up with Cook Like a Pro. It's packed with recipes, some old with terrific new twists and some new: Israeli Vegetable Salad on a bed of hummus (Yes! Really! So simple and beautiful,...

    Let me start off by saying that this is not a bad book, it just was not one that appealed to me. Ina had many good tips and ideas at the beginning of each section there were helpful pro tips like "is is done yet??" I really like that. The pictures were great and the recipes were not ba...

    Some really good advice, more for a newer cook. You can always see the care that Ina takes in putting a cook book together. Only recipe I don't agree with is her vanilla extract recipe, 12-24 beans, 4 cups vodka, room temperature and wait a few months. Add beans and extra vodka as you ...

    Cook Like a Pro by Ina Garten. Won this book on Good Reads. After reading the tips for home cooks and viewing all the recipes I am excited to start preparing them for my family. Ina Garten is one of my favorite cooks and I have tried other recipes of hers from books that I get from my ...

    Pictures of recipes? Yes. Commentary on recipes? Yes. Nutrition facts? No. Recipe Style? Nothing you wouldn't expect from Ina. Any keepers? I can't say I was terribly inspired. I'd rather have her invite me to dinner. ...

    I could not wait to look at Ina Garten?s latest cookbook Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks. I have been a fan of her cookbooks since I tasted her Tomato Basil Soup from her first cookbook, The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. I am not a great cook so I need recipes written ...

    3.5 stars. Does reading a cookbook from cover to cover count as a book? I?m a huge Ina Garten fan and make many of her recipes time after time. This one has several recipes that look good and that I will try, but it does seem much more simplified than many of her earlier cookbooks. M...

    I absolutely love Ina Garten a.k.a. the Barefoot Contessa! Her recipes are a return to beautiful, simple, fresh ingredients packed with a lot of flavor. For 15 years her cookbooks (and sometimes show) have been teaching me how to cook for my family and entertain my friends. I especiall...

    The chapters in COOK LIKE A PRO on breakfast and desserts are inspiring, but some of the other chapters just don't feel new. I am especially excited to try some of the summery desserts, like fresh peach cremolata and vanilla roasted rhubarb with sweet yogurt. There are a lot of tips in...

    I absolutely love Ina, and learned more about cooking and entertaining from her than from anyone else. I own all of her cookbooks and turn to them whenever I?m planning a menu. That?s why I?m sad to say this one was a let down :( I didn?t find too many recipes that jumped ou...
