    Dang it! Just when I think she can’t possibly do it again ... she does it again! This is filled with stellar tips, delicious vibes and stunning photos. Though she didn’t mention my fave pro tipped learned from Ina (use post its to take notes in your fave cookbooks - cleaner, clearer, easily updatable results), this is still one for the culinary treasure chest.

    The book is gorgeous. I found the selection of recipes to be uninspiring.

    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.

    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 . . .

    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 here that will be helpful to new or younger home cooks, but are things I have already figured out along the way. But like everything Ina, it is a cookbook that will get used and is worth having.

    I love reading cookbooks. I love the back stories with every recipe and I love Ina Garten. I am looking forward to trying so many of the selections..Israeli Salad..Tuscon Tomato Salad...Begium Waffles and Smoked Salmon..rainbow carrots...Baked Spinach and Zucchini....well done!

    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), until I got to the shrimp & grits recipe, and saw that she calls for instant grits. Absolutely not.

    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 reasons this book didn't work as well for me is I feel no urge to 'cook like a pro'. I'm a decent home cook; sometimes I enjoy cooking for special occasions but the thing I always liked about Ina was that she was abo This is a beautiful book, and Ina is super gracious as always.

That doesn't marry well with the idea of a pro chef, at least in my head. And, in general, the recipes weren't that inspiring - many of them aren't even hers (though she tells you where they come from). My favorite chapters are the cocktails/appetizers and desert - that was where her personality really came through. If you're a fan, this is a beautiful book and worth checking out for some new ideas.

    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, but I didn't think of it.) Chicken Marbella, Roasted Eggplant Parmesan, and fabulous party hits— sweet and savory strudels.

From the Chocolate Chevron Cake to the Blueberry Rhubarb Jam, this book is exciting! I learned from the scattered tips and techniques, and most of all I am inspired to make many of the recipes. I may have to work my way through the book like Julie did with Julia's.

    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 use up. 24 beans would cost a fortune today, cold extraction should go by weight, that would be a heck of a lot more than 24 beans per 4 cups of vodka, you need to cut or split beans to get the best vanilla.

Once it is used up (my opinion) it is used up, start more. And if it is so good, why does she use Nielsen Massey in her videos? (Just watched 2 and Ina used Nielsen Massey in both)

    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 bad. It was the choice of food that made this book a three star for me. I don't eat seafood and there are so many things that I am allergic to. That is the low grade on this book.

    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 take it easy. Your books are on the decline and not inspiring - go out on a good note and not like this. Repurposed recipes from your previous books and sauteeing whole vegetables are not worthy of a book by you ( Wow - Ina definitely had to crank out another book on a publishers timeline.

    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 than happy to be a guest at her table, but just don’t find most of her recipes appealing enough to me to want to make them. Sorry Ina.

    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 time soon. There are a few basics/professional hacks that are great to have in your pocket like homemade ricotta, perfect basmati rice and homemade vanilla extract.

    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 each chapter and some sprinkled in throughout the recipes. Overall, there just weren't that many recipes I wanted to try from this book. Maybe it would be better for a more beginner cook.

    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 some that I will use on a consistent basis.

    Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks is another beautiful book by Ina Garten. The Cauliflower Toasts look and sound delicious as do the Parmesan Pesto Zucchini Sticks, both of which I will be making in the coming days. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel as is I've seen some of these recipes and hints from her before.

    John

    The cooking tips are great, as she does a great job explaining subtle differences in measuring liquid vs. solids, etc. However, it's the first cookbook she's put out where I didn't see a single recipe I felt I had to try.

    Beautiful book! It’s a work of art as well as advice from a a pro that I will be using many times. Included are some great recipes with simple instructions that the novice to professionals can make. I’m making one dish today that I found.

    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.

    She’s so good. This one has more middle eastern inspiration than her previous ones. I love reading them cover to cover. Need to invite some people over tonight.

    How easy is that? More like, “How Pro is that?” Great read, recipes and insight! Ina, this is why you’re not just loved, but revered! Buying the hardcover now, so I have both!
