  1. MY favorite style does not have a name, but it is kind of the day before I really need to go grocery shopping – opening my cabinets, seeing what is in there and make something really nice with what is there.

  2. My favorite style of cooking is the MEGAN Style LOL! I cook so many different things and just play around with recipes they end up taking on a whole other form but if I had to choose a REAL category it would for sure be Italian. I think it’s the best comfort food and really the easiest when you are running low on time.

    Oh…well, my favorite style of eating is Thai. But that’s a bit harder for me to replicate. As far as cooking goes…I’m not entirely sure!

  4. Becky P

    Italian & Mexican. Can I even give 2 answers?? My boys love Italian and my husband loves Mexican. And I am good with either!

  5. Batsheva

    My favorite cooking style is Italian! My family jokes that we must have Italian ancestors way back somewhere … I went to Italy a few months ago for the first time on my honeymoon – the food was incredible!!!!!!!!!

  6. Elaine

    It would have to be Mexican, with Italian a close second.
    Follow you on facebook and twitter, too. Continued success!

  7. Brandy

    All of them? I think Indian is my favorite cooking… though I can’t do it. I make some mean Mexican food, however.

  8. Karen

    I like fixing good ole American comfort food. But I do like to try new and different things. I just enjoy cooking and baking for my family,

  9. Julie

    I come from a huge Italian family and so naturally, it’s my favorite. It’s what I know. From generation to generation, recipes have been passed down. Nobody cooks like an Italian!

  10. Brenda M.

    I love Mexican with all the cheeses and spices. I’d like to try Indian food but haven’t got the nerve yet.I’m sure it would be good too.

  11. Valerie C

    We have a large kitchen garden (still have ripe tomatoes, squash and eggplant from summer plantings)and now the winter things are coming in, so we try to cook various ethnic recipes using fresh ingredients. Cuban, Carribean, Cajun, oh, too many!!

  12. Tiffany S.

    I have been loving to cook indian food lately. Using all the spices really makes for an enjoyable meal and I just love the aroma. Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. I love CHINESE!!! I lived in China and Taiwan for a couple of years and can’t get enough of that cuisine. Panko bread crumbs make for an excellent chicken and shrimp katsu. Yum!

  14. Joyce

    I love Italian food. Any kind of pasta with yummy specialty sauces make me sing! (Especially if they have mushrooms in them)

  15. karen

    Italian food, is my favorite. I remember the feasts on Sundays at my Italian grandparents home. They even let us have sips of homemade red wine.

  16. Michelle Woodcock

    Italian. But only because that is what my son LOVES to eat!! I also love Mexican. Would love a new cookbook. : )

  17. Kay Nicholas

    I like American….so much variety. I think it’s fun tho to have a “try a new ethnic recipe” night and share recipes.

  18. Thesha

    Its a toss up, I would have to say Mexican with American then Italian in a close running, then again I like to make many Oriental dishes as well. :o)

  19. Cathy

    I love to make Korean food! It can sometimes be a labor of love so we don’t have it all the time which makes it that much better when we do have it. πŸ™‚

  20. kelly mcnichol

    I don’t know that I have a favorite style..but I do love tapas, pestos and sauces and make them all the time!

  21. Sara

    My favorite type of cooking is American…good home cooked meals. Meals like your grandma would make (but healthier versions).

  22. Kate Emerson

    Italian!! Love trying new recipes… having a dinner party this Friday and was just going through my Italian cookbook for some new recipes to try!

  23. Susan Din

    Oh-My-Goodness!! To pick only one…I can’t!!! I cook Italian, Indonesian, Cajun, Chinese, Soul, Thai, Mexican, BBQ, Greek, and of course good old American dishes!

  24. Marily

    My family is from Bolivia, and my husband’s is from Mexico, so we have an incredible latin palate to dig our hands into. My hubby is a fantastic cook and would LOVE this book. Crossing fingers!

  25. I definitely cook American the most! But I would LOVE to learn the tricks and trades of Mexican and Italian cooking. Much more delicious!

    I follow you on RSS =)

  26. Julie S-G

    I think it’s a tie between Mexican and Italian! My hubby is originally from Mexico and makes THE BEST authentic Mexican food..YUMMY!!!

  27. Cimarron

    I love to cook anything, but my absolute favorite would have to be rustic Italian. Mostly, because it is so dang easy! Just throw tons of stuff together, add in some pasta, some crusty bread, and you have a fantastic dish that looks beautiful and tastes spectacular.

  28. I cook it all! I think my favorite is good old fashioned southern cooking. I love Michael Chiarello, and who wouldn’t want to live in Napa? Seriously, I love it there. I didn’t notice that Progresso has panko bread crumbs now. Yeah!

  29. VickiT

    Ummmm are Desserts a “style”? LOL Kidding, but that’s my specialty. I don’t know that I really have any one style and tend to go in spurts where I get a bug and it seems I cook almost every meal of Italian or Mexican foods for awhile and then move on. It really depends on my mood. I do tend to cook more Mexican than most I’d guess if choosing just one HAD to be done.

  30. While I cook a bit of everything, Italian is by far my favorite comfort food!!! I love to make anything that has pasta and garlic :)Thanks for the offer.

  31. I try all kinds of cooking. I’d love to do more italian dishes with fresh homemade pasta. Now that our kids are all grown I feel like it would be fun to experiment more in the kitchen

  32. Ryan

    I love Mexican. I am pretty sure I could survive solely off Mexican food (fajitas, burritos, nachos, breakfast burritos, taquitos). YUM!

  33. Michele B

    Italian for sure…somewhere in my ancestory I know there has to be some Italian in me…I love the food way to much!

  34. It’s a toss between Italian & Mexican! I love cooking Italian and making different sauces to go with a variety of noodles and the kids will always eat it…Mexican is more fun to go out and eat!! I love following you on FB! πŸ™‚

  35. Kristen

    Oh, tough one! I like them all, of course depending on my mood and cravings that day. πŸ™‚ We love it all! Perhaps Italian more so only because my kids love pasta so much.

  36. Linsey Brockman

    Italian, hands down! Not only is the food delicious, I love the way Italians treat their food and get-togethers. It’s amazing!

  37. Colleen Tsambarlis

    If I had to choose out of those I’d have to say Italian due to the fact my husband loves his pasta but I enjoy making Greek dishes the most.

  38. Nancy Smith

    It is hard to pick since basically I just love food that is prepared well!! But if push comes to shove I’d have to choose Italian. Thanks for offering this great book.

  39. Paige

    My favorite style of cooking is definitely Mexican, just because it’s so versatile and super quick to make. Perfect for weeknight dinners!

  40. entry #1- My fave style of cooking is plain old American… but recently I have found a love of Indian food and would love to learn how to make some Indian dishes!

  41. I don’t know what I like! We have a Mexican daughter-in-law and a Filipino daughter-in-law so we constantly eat other cultures food. I guess my real favorite is still roast beef and mashed potatoes. Is that American?

  42. courtney ver velde

    Italian cooking… easy and the kids love noodles. But my idea of italian cooking is a jar of sauce and some noodles, occasionally toss some meat in there:( Sad I know!

  43. courtney ver velde

    I love italian cooking… easy and the kids love noodles. But my idea of italian cooking is a jar of sauce and some noodles, occasionally toss some meat in there:( Sad I know!

  44. My favorite style of cooking is Italian – Although, just because I am Italian does not mean I am good at it – I need the cookbook – lol
    Thanks for the opportunity to improve my skills & live up to my heritage πŸ™‚

  45. My favorite style of cooking? Gosh, how can I choose? I love to make Mexican, but also some Mediterranean dishes, and things like stir fries. Yum!

  46. Angie Richardson-Smith

    My favorite style of cooking is definitely Italian. I come from an Italian family and everything that came out of my grandmother’s kitchen was made with love. It makes everything extra tasty!

  47. Amanda V.

    My favorite style of cooking is Italian.
    but favorite kind of food is Mexican. But I leave the cooking to the pros, aka my grandma and aunts πŸ™‚

  48. I hate to choose because I love to cook all of them….but the one that goes over the best for everyone here at home would have to be Mexican cuisine!

  49. Janene

    I live where there isn’t any Mexican food to be heard of, literally zero. So I have taken to making my own and so far so good.

  50. I really enjoy preparing Italian dishes and Michael Chiarello is one of my favorite Chef/Cookbook authors. I enjoy his cooking programs as well. I would treasure one of his cookbooks πŸ™‚

    I’m all about the simple Italian… and that’s what Michael Chiarello does so perfectly! Love his recipes… the BEST!
