Giada is my all time favorite chef and her recipes have yet to fail me. With each new cookbook, comes even better recipes than the last (if that is even possible). Her recipes are easily prepared without much time involved and they alway taste so good. The turkey meatloaf is outstanding and I dislike meatloaf. Definitely going to purchase this one.
