Great Cookbook!

I really liked this book because, not only was it a cookbook, it was a story. The whole book had a story behind it. Each recipe had a story that went a long with it, and I liked that because it was so different from a normal cookbook. It showed that she really wanted to say something with her recipe's, rather than just compiling together a bunch of recipe's in a book.

I also liked the fact that there was so many pictures in the cookbook. It's nice to have a lot of photo's so that you can see the final outcome, and decide whether you even want to try the recipe out or not, rather than just going with it. I see a lot of cookbooks that won't have very many pictures in it at all, but this one was different. There was a photo of just about every dish in her book.

Since I like to go above and beyond in my reviews of cookbooks, I actually made one of the dishes in her book!

I made the Whole Grain Linguine with Basil, Bacon, and Shrimp
I really wasn't a fan of this because of all of the bacon grease that was used. I think I would have loved it if it has a lot less bacon grease, but don't let that deter you from this book! There are a lot of other recipe's that are sure to please your taste buds!

I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who is a fan of Giada's show on The Food Network, or anyone who wants to know more about her, and have fun making delicious recipe's at the same time!

Why does she just loves, loves showing off her cleavage. Giada we are not interested in your cleavage just your cooking. Cleavage and food just don't go!

    I think the recipies are good, but I could do without the cleavage shots.
