Happy Cooking by Giada De Laurentiis

I was excited to get Giada's newest book, Happy Cooking.  I've always enjoyed her recipes off of the internet and they seem to have so much flavor!  The subtitle of her book is "Make Every Meal Count... Without Stressing Out" is a great way to describe this book.  This book takes common everyday meal options and makes them not only taste good, but look beautiful.   Her book covers the following:

First Things First: #breakfast; Snacks and Small Plates;
Salads and Seasons; Soups and Stews; Eating Clean
Weeknight Warriors; Vegetables and Sides;
Weekends and Holidays; Treats and Sweets

I thought that the pictures in the book were just beautiful!  I love to see what the food is supposed to look like when I'm done, and I'm always excited when the author takes the time to add photos. Just like any other cookbook, I saw some recipes I would definitely try and others that I would not attempt at all.  The book does say that a portion of these recipes were previously published in a digital magazine called Giada from 2013 to the present.  So if you notice some recipes that seem a little familiar that may be the reason.  I was a little disappointed with some of the pictures of the author as her tops were low cut.  But all that being said, I'm looking forward to trying some of these recipes that have my mouth watering.

***I received this free book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
