There Goes My Diet...,

...not really! but this book (even the ARC in which the photos are Black and White) will tempt even the most reluctant cook into the kitchen.

In Giada at Home: Family Recipes from Italy and California the popular Food Network star shares her love of food - not just the nourishment that food provides but she celebrates the power that food has to bring people together - family and friends.
This book shows why Giada has become the star of a hit TV series...her sincerity comes across as she generously shares the traditions of her grandmother and mother married with her talent for making it current.
I've been trying some of the recipes and I can't seem to make it past the Appetizers...bruschetta, crostini and OMG the Smoked Salmon and Apple Carpaccio with Granny Smith Apples...the flavors melt together mmmmm.
The book ranges from Appetizers, Soups & Sandwiches to a first ever look at Brunch on Giada's Porch, a feature which hasn't been in previous books.
All of this is interspersed with photos of Giada with family and friends enjoying food and life in her lovely home.
