really liked it

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 her, but she does know how to cook well though.

Anyway, Giada has it all: the perfect body, adoring husband, impeccable cooking skills, a winning personality, the most current Anthropologie wardrobe, and friends miraculously appear wherever she travels to on her weekends.

And I actually do really like her as a Food Network chef. She knows what she is doing, has style in her cooking and is a great teacher. Now onto her cookbook...

Her cookbook has wonderful, appetizing, close-up photos of the finished product. Her ingredients and directions are very clear. More importantly her recipes are really good. They are what Italian cooking is all about...fresh and relatively simple ingredients prepared correctly to create something wonderful. It is truly a celebration of food.

Giada makes her recipes so detailed that someone who knows almost nothing can make them. But they are decent enough that anyone who is an ace in the kitchen will enjoy them as well.
