What a fresh new face on the cooking scene! Love her simple and easy recipes. Hope she continues to write cookbooks that are healthy and simple to use.
I've made a few recipes from this and liked them, but I always hesitate to go back to it because the text is in a light, bright blue color. It is not very easy on the eyes while trying to follow a recipe.
Another beautiful book from Giada. I probably like looking at the pictures more than actually cooking the dishes. I especially like the cutlet section of this book. Lot's of ideas for getting cutlets out quick for midweek meals. Favorite recipes from this book include chicken saltimbocca, chicken piccata, and veal marsala,
There are some good simple recipes which are easy to make and contain basic ingredients. It is excellent for basic home-style dishes, but nothing fancy or unique.

In the Food Network star's first book, Giada De Laurentiis helps you put a fabulous Italian dinner on the table tonight, for friends or just for the kids, with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of flavor. Everyday Italian is true to its title: the fresh, simple recipes are incredibly quick and accessible, and also utterly mouth-watering--perfect for everyday cooking. And the book is focused on the real-life considerations of what you actually have in your refrigerator and pantry (no mail-order ingredients here) and what you're in the mood for--whether a simply sauced pasta or a hearty family-friendly roast, these great recipes cover every contingency. So, for example, you'll find dishes that you can make solely from pantry ingredients, or those that transform lowly leftovers into exquisite entrées (including brilliant ideas for leftover pasta), and those that satisfy your yearning to have something sweet baking in the oven. There are 7 ways to make red sauce more interesting, 6 different preparations of the classic cutlet, 5 perfect pestos, 4 creative uses for prosciutto, 3 variations on basic polenta, 2 great steaks, and 1 sublime chocolate tiramisù--plus 100 other recipes that turn everyday ingredients into speedy but special dinners. What's more, Everyday Italian is organized according to what type of food you want tonight--whether a soul-warming stew for Sunday supper, a quick sauté for a weeknight, or a baked pasta for potluck. These categories will help you figure out what to cook in an instant, with such choices as fresh-from-the-pantry appetizers, sauceless pastas, everyday roasts, and stuffed vegetables--whatever you're in the mood for, you'll be able to find a simple, delicious recipe for it here. That's the beauty of Italian home cooking, and that's what Giada De Laurentiis offers here--the essential recipes to make a great Italian dinner. Tonight.
