I have all of Giada's cookbooks. I had read a few unfavorable reviews but decided to buy the book and see what I thought. The stuffed peppers are to die for. Can be made a day ahead and baked the next day and eaten for days afterwards. They alone would justify the cookbook. Whwn I buy a new cookbook I cook exclusively from it for about a month . The recipes have been easy to follow and delicious and she gives added good information about different ingredients and techniques. I highly recommend the book.

Unlike her other cookbooks, this one was not worth the money. Too many pictures of her friends and family and not enough of how the actual food should look. The recipes were not too different or as tasty as those from her other books. Buy her other cookbooks, save your money and use the library to take this book out. I am extremely disappointed in this book, it just seemed thrown together. Even the printing of this book looks cheap-3 different fonts used for each recipe make it a visual nightmare. More care and effort should have gone into this cookbook. Perhaps it is time to move on to another chef, her ideas do not seem to original.
