Many posts ago, way before Christmas, I posted a blog on Ina's new cookbook Back to Basics. I had this on my list, on the fridge, on my bedside table. Well, Santa didn't bring it. Nor, did I get it for Valentine's Day. SO I just decided to go buy it for myself! And I am sooooo happy that I did. I love watching her television show and it is one that I usually tape while at work.
This cookbook is wonderful. She has sections covering everything from cocktails to how to set a table. There is also a chapter on what not to serve your guests, ideas on appetizers and desserts that you do not have to cook. Another chapter features ideas on flavoring your foods with herbs and spices. This is a simple book, using everyday foods. The layout is easy to follow and photos are wonderful!
I plan to spend some time this weekend poring over the new ideas and trying some out on my sweetie!
