Description:

For the first time, bestselling author and beloved Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis tackles weeknight cooking with recipes that come together quickly--all in her signature fresh style.

As Jade grows up and schedules get busier, Giada has developed fantastic go-to recipes to get a delicious meal on the table in a flash. Here is Giada at her most inventive--and at her most laid back. Flavor, freshness, and fun take center stage while cooking times, pots dirtied, and stress are kept to a minimum. All of the soups, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, meat, and fish dishes come together quickly, most in half an hour or less. If you have eggs on hand but not much else, you can still pull together a great meal with the Breakfast for Dinner chapter. Leftovers are reinvented into healthy yet hearty main-course salads such as Roasted Salmon, Snap Pea, and Cucumber Salad and Chicken, Bibb and Arugula Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette. While Giada's recipes remain predominantly Italian, some California-global influences sneak in, as they do on her show, including Spicy Mint Beef and Thai Turkey Lettuce Wraps. Even desserts are quick to mix and bake, should a weeknight craving--or a last-minute school bake sale--strike.

Where Giada at Home gave readers a peek into Giada's home life--with shots of her and Jade making pasta, and Todd helping Giada at the stove--Weeknights with Giada is an even more intimate look into her day-to-day family life. Chock-full of gorgeous color photos, Weeknights with Giada will be a new favorite for longtime fans--and a new kind of handbook for home cooks everywhere.

Having all of Giada's books,this isn't one of the better ones.This one is more like a family photo album.

In contrast to the 2 prior "reviewers," I find this book delightful. Yes, it does have photos of Giada and her family, but it also has 101 recipes. The family photos are not obtrusive and fit with the theme of the book, which is quicker recipes to enable you to share home-cooked meals with your family, even on busy weeknights. Many of the recipes have photos of the finished dish. There are a wide variety of recipes, with some lighter options and more meatless choices than in her previous books. Don't let the negativity deter you if you're considering purchasing the book!

I WILL HAVE TO RATE THIS AS TERRIBLE AFTER READING A REVIEW SAYING IT IS LIKE A FAMILY ALBUM. I RAN OUT TO BUY THE BOOK AND HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO OPEN IT YET. I GUESS I HAVE WASTED MY MONEY.
