    Folks, proscuitto wrapped around roasted asparagus is not a recipe, its a nice suggestion. If you want nice, boring quasi-Italian suggestions, then by all means, by this book. On second thought, don't by this book, it sucks. Lidia's books have recipes and suggestions.

    OK, I have some strong opinions about the Food Network stars and I happen to love Giada. I do not like Rachel Ray, by the way, and don't get me started on lame-ass Sandra Lee. Crazy Ida will probably have a breakdown one day when that husband of hers who is never around finally leaves her, but she does know how to cook well though.

    Anyway, Giada has it all: the perfect body, adoring husband, impeccable cooking skills, a winning personality, the most current Anthropologie wardrobe, and friends mi

    OK, I have some strong opinions about the Food Network stars and I happen to love Giada. I do not like Rachel Ray, by the way, and don't get me started on lame-ass Sandra Lee. Crazy Ida will probably have a breakdown one day when that husband of hers who is never around finally leaves her, but she does know how to cook well though.

    Anyway, Giada has it all: the perfect body, adoring husband, impeccable cooking skills, a winning personality, the most current Anthropologie wardrobe, and friends miraculously appear wherever she travels to on her weekends.

    And I actually do really like her as a Food Network chef. She knows what she is doing, has style in her cooking and is a great teacher. Now onto her cookbook...

    Her cookbook has wonderful, appetizing, close-up photos of the finished product. Her ingredients and directions are very clear. More importantly her recipes are really good. They are what Italian cooking is all about...fresh and relatively simple ingredients prepared correctly to create something wonderful. It is truly a celebration of food.

    Giada makes her recipes so detailed that someone who knows almost nothing can make them. But they are decent enough that anyone who is an ace in the kitchen will enjoy them as well.

    I love Giada de Laurentiis. She is a model chef, mother and wife and has the cutest style and her show "Everyday Italian."

    This cookbook is wonderful if you want to cook tradition Italian dishes. I love the tortellini in chicken broth.

    My one complaint in this book is that she doesn't bring anything contemporary into these dishes. I love anything traditional, but I wanted her cookbook to see a new twist on some of these everyday italian meals.

    I am very excited to try her desserts!!

    I get that Giada is gorgeous. Really, she is. Stunningly so. But when I open a cookbook, I expect to see photos of, I don't know, the food described in the recipes maybe? Instead it is: Giada stirring a pot of something. Giada chopping something. Giada's million-dollar smile as she juices a lemon. I MEAN SERIOUSLY. This is a cookbook, not a fashion magazine. Good grief. Photos of garlic, photos of a cutting board + knife. SHOW ME WHAT THE PREPARED FOOD LOOKS LIKE!!

    Mostly this seemed not really my style. I marked maybe three recipes I want to try. But on the whole it seemed too simplified and too Italian-American...I don't mind going to some extra effort in the kitchen and I was looking for some authentic Italian recipes. Also I was just so annoyed by the useless photography.

    I don't remember much about this book, but it taught me how to make risotto. For that I will ever be grateful.
