I heart Giada. Her recipes are simple and delicous! My favorite recipe in this book is her Dirty Risotto. SO GOOD. I make her herb-cheese polenta all the time because its easy and goes with a lot of stuff.

This book is definitely "girly" but I like her detail of the characters and scenery. You are drawn to whatever she is describing in the book. I like this one.

How could you not fall in love with Owen Meany? This book is great. It is the kind of book you can't wait to get home and read. Its similar to Garp and Cider House Rules in style. I recommend this book.
