I have to share something with you all.
This time of year... every year... with out fail... I have this huge craving to cook!
I'm completely inspired by Giada de Laurentiis and love spot-lighting my favorite recipes from her. Most, if not all of her recipes are do-able regardless of your lifestyle, and my family literally trips out [insert jaws-dropped image here] when I bust out these super simple and DELICIOUS recipes.
I blame Giada, and I blame the season. Does anyone else get inspired to cook this time of year? I enjoy cooking all year; but I especially enjoy it now.

While most of you will be PR'ing in Races today, I may quite possibly cook and eat all day.
I am already thinking about dinner...

Without her, I wouldn't have the reputation I've earned in the kitchen the last 5+ years. Because of Giada I have been able to host countless large parties consisting of at least a 3-course meal, not to mention Thanksgivings!
If you are new to the kitchen, or simply want to spruce up your recipes -- get to know Giada! She is awesome on so many levels, and you'll fall in love with her palate. Every weekend I will be posting my favorite recipes; get excited!
