    I love Giada. I love Giada's books, I love Giada's recipes, I love Giada's show, I love how Giada says "crunchy," heck, I love Giada's clothes. I love basil, tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil (I needn't cutesy abbreviate here or the Food Network world might implode), parmesano reggia...

    I was pleasantly surprised by this cookbook -- the "everyday" concept is delivered in an approachable way. The majority of the ingredients are readily available and in my local grocery store. None of the recipes seem daunting. I can't wait to try them! The bonus for me was that this...

    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. ...

    Since I checked this out from the library, I only had time to make a few of the recipes, all of which were really good! Plus, there?s a few more I wanted to try, but I didn?t get the chance. It?s definitely something I want to buy when I get the chance. Or maybe I can just check ...

    This was my pick for this month's Cookbook Book Club at my library. One of the things the group enjoyed about this book was that Giada didn't call for any unusual or expensive ingredients. We only ended up with 2 desserts from the 13 participants. We had a LOT of vegetable based dishes...

    What I like about Giada's cookbooks is that she's okay with you using canned items as needed. It's okay to throw in canned tomatoes for a sauce. Sure, freshly peeled and seeded tomatoes are the best but sometimes one simply doesn't have the time to do that. She won't hold that against ...

    This was my cookbook of the week. Tried these recipes (using my familiar names -- reference Giada's book for the fancy names!): -Sausage and Pasta (p 106). Used regular broccoli, and penne pasta. Skipped the spicy stuff for sake of the kids. -Chicken piccata (p 153)Kids and hubby lov...

    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 ...

    At the moment, my favorite cookbook. It's a gift from a dear friend. Eventually I'll make most of the stuff in here and probably find it wonderful, but for now my favorites are the salmon cartoccio (made an incredibly moist and flavorful salmon that tasted just as great in leftovers) a...

    I had mixed feelings about this book. I love Giada's shows, I do, but I felt like this book was really short of the mark. It is beautifully illustrated with full color photos, and many of the recipies are fast and easy. However, I really believe that the level of "shortcuts" used reall...

    I've watched her show on the Food Network for a long time now and got this as a Christmas gift. I have made quite a few things from this book, all with great results. Although I must admit, I have been tempted to make little alterations to the recipes along the way....but I do that wit...

    I love this cookbook. I usually stand firm by the statement, "never trust a skinny chef", but I trust this one. Ive tried out so many of Giada's recipes and I've been pleased every time. She has some traditional Italian recipes as well as some she has made up. My favorites are her bisc...

    Filled with delicious sounding recipes that are easy to make (really!) and tips and stories about why they appear in the book make this one a winner. I'm an avid cookbook collector and will definitely be buying Everyday Italian for my collection. With recipes that Strega Nona would...

    Everything from anti-pasti to dolce' in an easy to follow format and with beautiful photos of the finished food. The Crostata with Mushrooms and Pancetta (page 28) looks and tastes like something you would be served in a 3 Michelin Star restaurant, yet it is so easy to prepare, even fo...

    Originally posted on Sarahsbookshelf.com: I haven?t really been sold on Giada de Laurentiis in the past. I had checked out some of her cookbooks and wasn?t really impressed. I?m an optimist, though, so I decided to give her another shot. This book was her first cookbook and it...

    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 do...

    I was disappointed at how meat-centric the recipes were. As a vegetarian, I find Italian food tends to be one of the easiest types to make vegetarian, but these recipes were overall difficult to adapt. Although there were two vegetarian recipes, she took a bit of a condescending tone t...

    There are many useful recipes here. Some, however are a stretch due to ingredient list. Still a solid book of basics. ...

    I haven't tried all the recipes yet, but I love the simplicity of this collection that also has a sophisticated feel to it and wonderful flavors. The asparagus frittata is amazing, the caprese salad has wonderful flavor plus a splash of color with orange tomatoes. The recipe for roaste...

    This was fine. Nothing special. I don't mind Giada, but her recipes are generally boring. I thought that she would have put new and interesting ideas into Everyday Italian, but it's the same recipes you find online and on food network. What was lacking, nearly any pictures of food....

    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 jui...

    Cook Italian with an American touch Those of us who watch Food Network are familiar with some of the top names in cooking, and Giada De Laurentiis comes up in the Top 10 list. Her presentation skills, youth appearance wearing a low-cut top attracts many viewers and her cooking techn...

    I tried a couple of recipes and so far, so good. Some recipes are indeed very simple, even too simple to be called a recipe. However, they can make for great ideas for a party or in-between. ...
