As a celebrity chef and host of shows like Giada at Home and Everyday Italian, Giada de Laurentiis keeps busy — but still found time to release her fifth cookbook, Giada at Home (2010 Clarkson Potter). Here, she shares two easy recipes from the book. Her prosciutto appetizers are perfect for entertaining at any time of year. The citrus salmon, meanwhile, can be grilled on the barbecue in summer or pan-grilled indoors for easy weeknight dinners throughout the year.
Plus, try dishes from her Weeknights With Giada cookbook.
