The Easiest Hack To Strip Fresh Herbs, Approved By Giada De Laurentiis

A well-stocked spice cabinet is essential for any home cook to help create a variety of flavorful dishes. Of course, the spice cabinet is likely to contain its share of dried herbs as well, and dried herbs have plenty of uses for the home cook. Their flavors are far more concentrated than their fresh counterparts, and unlike fresh herbs, they can hold up to extended cooking, and can even get more flavorful with it (though not all herbs dry well) (via The Spruce Eats).

The Sweet Reason Giada De Laurentiis Treated Her Daughter To A Crepe

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links. Anyone who follows chef Giada De Laurentiis on social media probably feels entitled to at least a fraction of co-parenting rights over her daughter, Jade. De Laurentiis doesn't seem to mind sharing the spotlight with her teenager, which means that Jade often cameos on TikToks, pops into Instagram posts, and even does the occasional secret takeover, like one Instagram post in which she made a righteous mac n' cheese for mom in celebration of Mother's Day. Jade has the star power (and, apparently, cooking chops) of her mother, with a youthful enthusiasm that is all her own, and it's impossible to follow De Laurentiis without feeling completely endeared to Jade, too.

Giada De Laurentiis Says This Lemon Ricotta Pound Cake Is Her 'Fav'

If you have a sweet tooth, then you're the type of person who always leaves room for dessert. While a sweet treat can be the best way to finish off your evening, your final course has to be something that complements the rest of your meal. Sometimes that may be a rich and heavy dessert, like a chocolate lava cake, and other times it has to be a treat that's light and refreshing, like fruit and ice cream. If you're looking for the latter, then a lemon-based dessert is always a great go-to.

Giada De Laurentiis has a repository of pasta recipes and Italian dishes she can whip up in a New York minute or share with her fan base.

And De Laurentiis certainly knows how to take cauliflower to the next level (via Instagram) or what sauce will go great with salmon (via Giadzy). Now, it's the "Giada at Home" host's addition of a classic duo to her pasta dish that has our tongues wagging. This is just the dish we need to celebrate spring and we love that it's a family recipe she is putting her own mark on.
