Mine is Barefoot Contessa Family Style.  The recipes are what I would call upscale comfort food - things like stuffed tomatoes with fresh herbs, cheese and breadcrumbs or five cheese penne pasta which is a fancy mac and cheese in individual gratin dishes.  Not pretentious, just good food, but with a bit of a gourmet flair.

I have all of them! I like the Paris one. I love her so much. I DVR her show every day and cook more of her recipes than anyone else!
