Which Ina Garten Cookbook?

I don't own any, but people here seem to speak highly of her recipes and whenever I see her show on tv, I want to crawl through the screen and join her at dinner. So. Which one? I do far more family cooking than company cooking, if that helps.

I was flipping through one in the store the other day (and wouldn't it help if I could remember which one?) and wasn't terribly impressed. It seemed like lots of recipes for things I either already have 900 recipes for or for things that I don't need a recipe for. I don't need her to tell me to put mozzarella, tomato and basil on a plate and drizzle with good olive oil.

So, was I just not looking at the best or is it that her versions of the common dishes are just superb?
