Not a single recipe I would use, specialty ingredients. Not a good choice as a family cookbook. Returned immediately.
This is mediocre to say the least. Another rehash of already known recipes in an attempt to sell a cook book. Don't bother, there are better books out there.

I can say there is at best 2 recipes I would make, and my kids would not eat any of the "kid friendly" food and they do have pretty good palates.

I have a few other Giada books which I absolutely love, nice fresh ingredients, tasty and simple.....but sad to say...not a fan of this one...none of the recipes read as anything I would be interested in making. Even "kid approved"? maybe for a chefs child, but don't think my grand-children would eat these recipes..too bad...lucky you though, I never return books, even if I don't care for them...just add to my collection, who knows, one day may try something...maybe the smoky orzo dish
Have to say I loved the book. Recipes are unique and delicious. I'm on track to cook a few more before I'm through.
