As her daughter Jade grows up and schedules get busier, Giada has developed fantastic go-to recipes to get a delicious meal on the table in a flash. Here is Giada at her most inventive--and at her most laid back. Flavour, freshness, and fun take centre-stage while cooking times, pots dirtied, and stress are kept to a minimum. All of the soups, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, meat, and fish dishes come together quickly, most in half an hour or less. If you have eggs on hand but not much else, you can still pull together a great meal with the Breakfast for Dinner chapter. Leftovers are reinvented into healthy yet hearty main-course salads such as Roasted Salmon, Snap Pea, and Cucumber Salad and Chicken, Bibb, and Arugula Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette. While Giada's recipes remain predominantly Italian, some California-global influences sneak in, as they do on her show, including Spicy Mint Beef and Thai Turkey Lettuce Wraps. Even desserts are quick to mix and bake, should a weeknight craving or a last-minute school bake sale strike.Where Giada at Home gave readers a peek into Giada's home life with shots of her and Jade making pasta, and Todd helping Giada at the stove Weeknights with Giada is an even more intimate look into her day-to-day family life. Chock-full of gorgeous colour photographs, Weeknights with Giada will be a new favourite for long-time fans and a new kind of handbook for home cooks everywhere.
