I love her show of the Food network. I have been looking for her bacon recipe and I'm glad she printed it up in this book. I made it once before and couldn't remember it. But it was so naughty and good at the same time.

Nadia G's Bitchin' Kitchen: Cookin' for Trouble is a cookbook featuring seventy-five recipes from Nadia Giosia, the star of Bitchin' Kitchen on Food Network Canada. Besides the recipes, there's also tons of "Nadvice" as well as snippets from the other Bitchin' crew members: The Spice Agent, Panos and Hans.

This is such a fun cookbook. The recipes are unique and beautifully presented. The photography is outstanding. The organization of the book is a little different from other cookbooks in that t

Just like its predecessor, 'Cookin' For Trouble' is another quirky, colorful and often hilarious romp through Nadia G's kitchen, using a combination of recipes, artwork and narrative told in Nadia's trademark Italian/French Canadian dialect. There are more recipes this time around and while there are definitely a few I am dying to try (Juicy Roast Chicken, Remixed Champagne Kirs), there are also a few that are a little too funky for me (Moroccan Fig and Squash Couscous, Buckwheat Raclette). But ...more

Frankly I can only take so much of her, and don't watch her show, but . . . . I love her recipes. She's not just an Italian girl. No, she actually makes a wide variety of recipes with lots of vegetarian and mediterranean too. Some examples: pizza, turkey matzoh ball soup, Thai green curry with eggplant and udon noddles, pierogies, chana dhansak, spicy shrimp po boy, moroccan fig and butternut squash couscous, balsamic baby back ribs, vegan dark chocolate and caramelized banana pie, oh, and don't ...more

I realize that every cookbook isn't for me...well this wasn't meant for me. I've only watched a whole show once and it was a bit too over the top for me. I thought the book might have a few words of wisdom for my kitchen but that didn't happen. She talked negatively about earning a college degree (I'm a professor), she uses ingredients that are normal for my household and there are words/phrases that are offensive (to me anyway). So all that being said I believe that you have to give everyone a ...more

I didn't read it from cover-to-cover; I have trouble doing that with a cookbook. But Nadia is weird and hilarious and the recipes are delicious, so what's not to like? Every page is a worthwhile read.

Nadia G has a way with making cooking fun and funny. Even if you don't cook her show is entertaining on its own right. The book is full of humor, character and tastey-ness and that's not something you can say about most books.
Mar 20, 2012 Alida rated it it was amazing
Read the book from cover to cover, just like the first one. With recipes with names like "rebecca's psycho pms chocolate balls" and "happiness = bacon", you know you gotta try them even if you don't cook much. Spicy shrimp po boy, you're next......

Looks like some very yummy recipes, that I can't WAIT to try!
Although it does seem a bit....

I rented this from my library and made about 5 recipes - each of them was fun, delicious and didn't require that I travel outside of my zip code to get the ingredients. Great book!

I love watching Nadia's TV show as it is quirky, funny and the food is great. This cookbook is the same. A delightful read.

I can't wait to make at least 2 recipes from this cookbook. I have already made her crepes from her cooking show. EASY PEASY

A little disappointed. I live Nadia. But I think some editor pushed her to be overly "sexy" you don't need that girl! Your spunkiness is sexy enough!!
