Book Review: Giada at Home

posted in: Books | 1

I’ve recently been given two Giada cookbooks, and I found this one more tantalizing then the other one, Everyday Italian.  This one had more original recipes and recipes that actually needed recipes.  🙂

Here are some of the ones I want to try…

Lemon Chicken Soup with Spaghetti

Nonna Luna’s Rice (to make one night when my husband isn’t home – he is not a shrimp fan) – We can have a girl’s night!

Grilled Tuscan Steak with Fried Egg and Goat Cheese (another one I would have to cook differently – my husband doesn’t like runny eggs) – but I like pleasing him with what I cook

Vegetable Parm – baked veggies and cheese – does it get much better?

Cranberry Cornmeal Cake – would be great for the Fall!

Chocolate Rice Pudding – oh goodness comfort food and chocolate

Should be making some of these once we move!

    I am normally nowhere near you when it comes to making recipes from cookbooks 🙂 but I have actually made something from this cookbook! I’ve made the Lemon Chicken Soup in the past. I really enjoyed it, but found that it needed more broth to be a true soup…but that might have been my mistake, not Giada’s!
