This past Christmas I received this cookbook from my husband. Everyday Italian and Giada at Home are my favorite Food Network shows to watch. I love Italian cooking and after trying several of her recipes I have found that they are easy meals to prepare and in our family they are always a hit. Steve and I both dream of one day visiting Italy. So whenever we have Italian dishes at home, I think we both pretend we are sitting along the Tuscan countryside, sipping cappuccinos and eating Italian pastries for breakfast, or sitting on the steps of the Trevi Fountain in Rome having a piece of pizza and some gelato.
This is the only cookbook I have by Giada (yes, I am on a first name basis with her). Check my recipe book though and you will find many recipes that I have printed off from dishes she has prepared on her show. I honestly haven't found one that I haven't liked yet. Last night I prepared this dish that was deliziosa! It's called Orecchitte with Mini Chicken Meatballs and you can link to the recipe here.
Have a great weekend and I will see you bright and early Monday morning for the 5:16AM club.
