New Cookbooks

We interrupt this blog radio silence to let you know that my two favorite cookbook authors have new books coming out this month! Make It Ahead from the Barefoot Contessa's Ina Garten comes out next week. It's no secret that I have a serious Barefoot crush. Her recipes always turn out, are flexible, and can please a crowd. Watching her show relaxes me and makes me want to go cook until I drop. I love her. Meeting Ina is on my bucket list and almost happened when her last book came out until Hurricane Sandy changed her book tour schedule and Arizona was dropped from her tour. She's not coming here this time but maybe she's coming to your city. Go meet her for me! Maybe next book...

Dorie Greenspan's new book, Baking Chez Moi- Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere, is also coming out on the 28th. I've baked through about 95% of the recipes from Dorie's book Baking from My Home to Yours and can't say enough good things about them. I loved participating in Tuesdays with Dorie and can't wait to see this newest book. Her recipes are easy to follow and have taught me skills to apply in other recipes that have been invaluable. The photographs are always stunning in her books, as well.

Now I'm kind of torn because I don't know which to ask for for my anniversary. Are you ordering these? What cookbooks are you loving these days? I do get a lot of my recipes online but for my real favorites there's nothing like the physical cookbook and I can't wait to get these on my shelves.

For the other Ina fans out there, have you read this interview? I loved hearing more about how she really eats and cooks (oatmeal every day! Seriously!)
