A Week of Giada

Filed under: Uncategorized — prothro @ 12:25 pm

So I love Allrecipes.com. And I mean love. For the most part, that is where I get my recipes, then I add them to my shopping list for the week, e-mail it to myself and use my phone to access and manage my grocery list while shopping. It does bum me out that I don’t try as many recipes from other sources though so I’m going to start periodically picking a chef or a cookbook and cooking only their recipes for a week.

BECAUSE I CAN, SO WHY NOT?

So this week, I’m starting with the lovely Giada de Laurentis. Mostly because her name sounds awesome and Jessica Hill loves her. Plus, I’m borrowing one of her cookbooks from a friend. So here are my Giada recipes for the week.

MONDAY: Dinner at Thai Spoon with friends-I severely doubt they will use a Giada recipe

TUESDAY: Garlic and Sun-dried Tomato Corn Muffins and Tuscan White Bean and Garlic Soup

WEDNESDAY: Pork Chops with Fennel and Caper Sauce

THURSDAY: Chicken Tetrazzini with Mushroom Risotto and Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce (Small group is coming over!)

FRIDAY: Linguine with Shrimp and Lemon Oil

SATURDAY: Out of Town

SUNDAY: Out of Town

Now I’m off to make my grocery list. The lame old-fashioned way. Let’s hope Giada is as wonderful of a chef as I’ve been told. I leave you with a picture of the Jessica and her dog, Giada. I told you Jess loves her.
