I discovered Giada De Laurentiis many years ago, when I would watch her cooking show, Everyday Italian, with my grandmother, so to finally own one of her cookbooks is something I was looking forward to. When it came to her cooking show, I was always intimidated by the types of dishes she cooked because they were either too expensive, or ingredients were not available in my area, so I was curious how this cookbook would be in terms of bringing it into the kitchen as a weekly essential. I love the variety in this cookbook! For example, the breakfast section has recipes such as smoothies, oats, rice bowls, wraps, crepes, and muffins. There is pizza, pasta, all-types of salads, and more. There are little blurbs throughout the book with information, Cook’s Notes beneath recipes, and pages of thorough tips, advice, and information that anyone in the kitchen can put forth with success. I did think some of the recipes called for a lot of labor, but that is something that pays off when it comes to cooking, and enjoying the meal. (I’d also recommend that you buy a copy of Chef Jai Scovers’ new book, Conquer Your Kitchen, which will help you save a lot of time and money in the kitchen. My pasta has gotten so much better since I started using Conquer Your Kitchen. It is a wealth of information and a must buy for any kitchen.) I thought the design and layout were beautiful, and the photos captured the food wonderfully. This is a cookbook that’ll be going in the kitchen to be used throughout the week, because the Soups & Stews section is ideal with this cold weather quickly approaching. Good book.

Happy Cooking Make Every Meal Count…Without Stress Out By: Giada De Laurentiis The cover on this book is really great a happy smiling face looks back at you and inviting food is before your eyes inviting you into the pages to make a new journey all your own and find new dishes to inspire you to eat better and healthier. There’s a note in a blue box with information you can’t miss because it is about the recipes in this beautiful cook book. Don’t miss this information Please!!! The shaved Vegetable Salad with Goat Cheese Vinaigrette and Walnuts featured on page 81 is my favorite salad in this book although I love all the salads I love this one the most!! There are plenty of salads to choose from featured in this book so you won’t run out of new salads for different meals. Try them they are wonderful actually mouth watering!!!! There are so many recipes in this beautifully written cook book to try out that it will take you a long time. So where to start I did with the salads I loved. Yum, Yum you may want to start somewhere else other then the salads. No me I love salads more than meat. This cook book is loaded with Parfaits, meats, soups, vegetables Holiday foods, and then there are desserts as she calls them Treats and Sweets a nice new twist for the menu. I have so many pages marked that I also want to try that sound and looks good. The beautiful colored pictures add a touch of love to the pages that will make your mouth water. This is a cook book I think you’d want to add on the self with your favorite cook books that maybe one of them was your Mom’s favorite cook book she owned and now you have it because I think you’ll use this one a lot.. I recommend this book highly. I received this cook book from Blogging for books free for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-8041-8792-3
