January Potluck with Giada!

This is it! Time to choose one of those fabulous Giada dishes you have had your eye on and cook it up, bake it up, blend it up - the sky is the limit! Do you realize that we are well on our way to the end of our six months with Giada? Time to start catching up on those dishes that keep calling to us, the ones that haunt our dreams. Yeah, for me that quite often means pasta - thankfully Giada is the master (mistress?) of pasta. No shortage of dishes to choose from.

But she also offers quite a lot of breakfast, brunch, appetizers, soups, salads and healthy fare. And of course her sweet tooth is legendary. So much to choose from!

Go through your Giada cookbooks, or her recipes online - prepare whatever of her recipes you desire and post it on or by Sunday, January 30th. Link up your post to Mr. Linky so we can all enjoy your creations!

Meanwhile, have you had a chance to check out what everyone made for California Dreaming last week?

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this January Potluck with Giada!
(Recipes from Giada only, please)

Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

I love Giada! She LOVES cooking in her kitchen and she always seems to be having a good time. I can't remember if I've made any of her recipes recently...I need to work on that!

MM said...

Hard to believe we're almost done.
Happy potluck, everyone!

Kim said...

A very fun potluck post! I love that first picture with the pasta and the egg on top - yum :)

I've really been enjoying Giada's recipes. I might have a couple up my sleeve for this week's theme.

will try to get something in for the potluck theme, now that we're almost finished with giada. have lots of other cooking challenges on my plate that i need to meet as well. have we decided who the next chef is that we'll focus on? thanks, roz

MM said...

I wouldn't have anything to bring this month if it hadn't been for Heather's Cheddar Scallion Ciabatta lighting a fire.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

My delicious and nutritious white bean tuna salad is up!

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Roz - we still have two months, just in the home stretch. A new chef will be on tap for April, before that we will have a vote. (open for 2 weeks, so you will have plenty of time to see it)
We are going boy/girl, so our next chef will be a fella.
Cheers!

I wanted to make a couple Giada dishes this week, but got sick and only got around to this cheesy baked farro. It doesn't look real appetizing, but it tastes delicious!

The Ligurian Fish Stew that I made was very easy to prepare, quick, and flavorful. I exchanged seafood stock for the water, and added shrimp and some spicy tomato paste.

(Natasya, if open your comment thingie all the way you can reveal Name/URL option; I had to sign up with my google account - I don't know if it makes any difference, rally, just saying:)

Deb in Hawaii said...

Sneaking in my adaptation of Giada's Tomato Soup with Pancetta under the deadline.

Served with a grilled cheese it was yummy.
