"Giada De Laurentiis is one of America's most-loved culinary stars, adored for her Food Network hit shows and her New York Times bestselling cookbooks alike, both of which feature her fresh, flavorful Italian recipes. For the first time, Giada tackles weeknight cooking, sharing her favorite tips and go-to dishes-all in her vibrant signature style-to get a delicious meal on the table in a flash. After a full day, Giada, like most parents, wants nothing more than to sit down for a home-cooked dinner with her husband, Todd, and their daughter, Jade. Weeknights with Giada rises to the challenge, delivering soups, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, and meat and fish dishes that come together quickly as stand-alone main courses-most in half an hour or less- Rustic Vegetable and Polenta Soup, a hearty soul-warming one-pot dish, cooks in under twenty minutes; Lemony White Bean, Tuna, and Arugula Salad is a great meal that's quickly assembled from pantry and fridge essentials; Spicy Linguini with Clams and Mussels is a fifteen-minute-or-less spectacular pasta; and you can't beat Grilled Sirloin Steaks with Pepper and Caper Salsa, which are also ready in just fift

I was a bit surprised to only find 2 recipes to take away from this whole book (both of which were sides). She has definitely published better recipe collections.

There are only a few recipes that are worth while in this book, it really is more of an advertisement for the author and her family. i would rather see more cooking ideas than pictures of her family. Much of it can be found online.

This was the second time I checked this book out. While it isn't the most creative cookbook out there, it does have a lot of good recipes, particularly great for families & those w/children just exploring the world around them. I like Giada's recipes because they are accessible & easily adaptable to meet a variety of needs & tastes.
