As if Ina doesn’t already get enough love from everyone else, one of her biggest fans is one of our favorites: Jennifer Garner. Yes, that means the woman who shows everyone how to be a stepmother leans on Ina Garten’s Modern comfort food to get dinner on the table — and it’s 48% off on Amazon right now!

Jennifer Garner has a way of doing things everything charming – even cooking dinner. She gushed about her favorite cookbook on Instagram Modern comfort food. That’s her weekend as an incentive—and she read it like a novel before diving into the real cooking.

“Everything here is EXACTLY what you want to cook and exactly what you want to eat right now,” Garner said before giving us an episode of The Pretend Cooking Show that she’s doing for the ‘gram. She made Ina’s Crispy Chicken with Lemon Orzo and brought a surprise guest.

Above the video, Jennifer walks through the recipe with Ina looking virtually over her shoulder, giving her tips and advice along the way. And as any good fan would do, while Jennifer waits for the chicken to finish cooking, she finishes off the chocolate Oreo ice cream recipe she took from the book – showing Ina the results. But that’s not among her cooking trophies—Jennifer clearly can’t get enough of this book, because she also pulls out the frozen Paloma she made from Ina’s recipe. And there’s so much more to get out of this book — 85 recipes in all!

Jennifer isn’t the only one who loves this book — it also has nearly 15,000 five-star reviews from buyers on Amazon.

“In a world of fraudulent, unreliable online recipes, this collection of satisfying meals is a breath of fresh air,” shared one happy home cook. “These really are recipes you’ll want to come back to again and again – relatively simple but flavorful. This cover tomato biscuit is the best I’ve ever tasted. Lamb ragout and rigatoni is what I made for a one-dish, cozy Christmas dinner this year.”

“No exotic ingredients or difficult, time-consuming techniques,” writes an amazed home cook. “Just simple, amazing food. The pea soup with sausage was outstanding; reminded me of my grandmother’s cooking. The chicken pie soup was amazing; it came together so quickly and the flavor was phenomenal. I made the soup while I was roasting the chicken and the whole thing was ready to eat in less than an hour… had some for dinner and gave some to a friend who said “How can something taste this good?”
