This cookbook has become a go-to staple in my busy household. We have tried about 75% of the recipes Giada presents and have found them all to be absolutely fantastic! The ingredients are simple and mostly fresh herbs and vegetables which really bring an amazing experience to our table. In addition the recipes are simple, no painstaking steps that intimidate novice cooks. My husband, who's not a big cook, can even follow the recipes with success! It makes him feel great and also takes the pressure off of me to always be the one to cook. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a fresh new way to make some classic Italian fare.

    Great if you only want traditional Italian

    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!!

    Not my favorite .  Giada was better in her early days. I'm not enjoying her current show nor her new flirtation
    With her fellow cooks Iike Bobby Flay.  She has a child and she should act like a mother not a flirt.
