Get Your Holidays Cooking With Books

Stacyknows you love recipes, so we're betting that cookbooks are high on your holiday gift list. Here are some of 2010's best chef-authored cookbooks (and links to great recipes inside of them) to keep in mind as you shop for your family and friends--or for yourself.

TV chefs proved that they have culinary prowess to match their charisma in books such as Jamie Oliver's  Jamie's America: Easy Twists on Great American Classics, and More,  Bottega: Bold Italian Flavors from the Heart of California's Wine Countryand  , Fiesta at Rick's: Fabulous Food for Great Times with Friendswhich all have recipes we've turned to time and again.
 Avec Eric: A Culinary Journey with Eric Ripert and Sweet Magic: Easy Recipes for Delectable Desserts    showed us that the French still possess an enviable mastery in the kitchen.

And of course my favorite, anything by Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa
Any of these cookbooks will help kick off the New Year in the best possible way: around a table of chef-inspired, homemade food.
