Welcome to a new week….the last one before we turn the calendar page to September and begin the mad dash of “back to school” or “back to work”!
Today, I want to pass along some good tidbits.
First off, I am thrilled that Ina Garten is coming out with her new book, Barefoot Contessa Foolproof – recipes you can really trust on October 30th.
I’ve been a fan of Ina’s from the beginning and think this could be a fitting title for all of her cookbooks, as everything I’ve ever made from one of her recipes has turned out beautifully. Good food, that you actually enjoy preparing and feel confident serving. In this latest cookbook, Ina takes us past the recipes and shares her secrets for getting everything on the table while it’s hot, so you can keep your hostess cool!
You can pre-order at a discount from Amazon…OR for the face value of the book ($35), you can call the Barefoot Contessa office at 631-324-0240 and order autographed copies. Think…holiday gifts!
Second, if you’re already eyeing those yummy looking tomato crostinis with whipped feta on the cover of her new book, the recipe is here!
Finally, after seeing the post I wrote on Friday about my new favorite stationery, the sweet folks at Dempsey & Carroll are offering all of you FREE SHIPPING through the end of August with the code pinktulip12!
Again, I know it’s only August, but think holiday gifts. And, you may actually get to enjoy the month of December!
