Introduction
Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa, focuses on everything easy in her newest "Write My Paper in New York Times" Bestselling cookbook.
Ina Garten is keenly aware that nobody has the time, or the inclination, to cook all day anymore. Although, it's pretty safe to say that we still want and appreciate good food. In her newest cookbook, Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That? she addresses this issue with her own brand of easy cooking for our fast-paced lives.

In our never-a-dull-moment, fast-food-inclined nation, granted which is slowly starting to accumulate a counterculture of "real food" foodies, the answer seems to lie in the quick, cheap and convenient. On the other hand, you have chefs and cookbook writers who would have you buy thirty-one different ingredients, always having one or two that make you wonder, "How in the world am I going to get my hands on that?" for a dinner that takes four hours to make. If you waste time cooking, you will have to ask for help: can someone write my paper for me?

Ina Garten takes a novel approach to such a dichotomy. She focuses on easy ingredients, shortcuts, techniques, menus and recipes, but she never promotes the cheap or the convenient. She has found the perfect balance between the two extremes by promising delicious food with layers of complex flavors made in an easy way. Yes, it takes a little more time than heating up say a frozen pizza, but wouldn't taking a little more time to whip up some great tasting, healthier food for your family in Ina's easy way make the trade off worth it?

Her cookbook includes 89 recipes, divided into cocktails, starters, lunch, dinner, vegetables and desserts, and it includes 68 easy tips throughout the book.
