In her new app issue, the celebrity chef talks about supporting those in need

With the support of other famous friends, De Laurentiis is giving back this season.

With Black Friday gone and Cyber Monday passed, people are (hopefully) turning their attention to helping out those in need.

Giada de Laurentiis is a big supporter of volunteerism and in this week’s issue of her new app she is featuring a guest blog post from her friend and fellow Food Network star Trisha Yearwood, who is hitting the road on behalf of Habitat for Humanity.

In addition to Yearwood's post, this week’s issue also includes an article about De Laurentiis and her family’s support of the Melanoma Foundation, and a gift guide article that includes a list of De Laurentiis' favorite gifts that benefit charities. For a complete look at the app, visit the Apple Newsstand.

Here are some details about this week's issue:

We celebrate the season of giving with some great ideas for giving back:

  • Recipes from an upcoming book called The Soup Club, where sharing and soup go hand in hand
  • Trisha Yearwood writes about traveling with Habitat for Humanity, and helping build homes
  • De Laurentiis tells the family story behind her ongoing support of the Melanoma Foundation
  • Gifts that give back: De Laurentiis' list of great gifts that benefit charities
  • Feel Good Food: Chef Suzanne Goin, a founding force behind Alex's Lemonade Stand, shares a recipe from her new book
  • Hotlist: Music for a good cause

Cooking with Giada De Laurentiis

There was a time when Giada could while away hours shopping at a market and then preparing a three-course meal. But these days&mdashaside from special occasions&mdashshe doesn't have time for that luxury. Her latest cookbook, Weeknights with Giada, gives you a taste of what the busy chef puts on her own table&mdashfrom sandwiches, to spins on restaurant favorites, to breakfast for dinner (a tradition in her house). Each meal takes under an hour to make. Buon appetito!

Thai Turkey Lettuce Cups
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from about 5 limes)
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (from about 1 large lemon)

1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated

1. In a bowl, whisk lime juice, lemon juice, fish sauce, and honey.

2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, shallots, lemongrass, and chili. Cook until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

Giada's Family Secret for Sweeter Pasta Sauce

Chef Giada De Laurentiis enjoys time cooking at home with her family as seen on Giada At Home 2.0.

In a recent live demo on the Food Network Kitchen app, Giada cooked up a stunning summery pasta dish: Crab and Cherry Tomato Fettuccine. This easy dish whisks her away to the Amalfi coast where she remembers eating many different seafood pastas. And if you can’t find fresh crab, that’s fine! She makes it with canned.

During the demo, one of the viewers asked Giada if she ever adds sugar to her sauces. While she does, sometimes, that’s never her first solution for an overly acidic sauce. “In my family,'' said Giada, “we always added carrot to take out the acidity.” She suggested starting with some carrot and if that didn’t work finish the sauce with some butter. “The butter will make it velvety and get rid of that tinny or acidic flavor,” explained Giada. Check out her Simple Tomato Sauce for a good blueprint. If you’re going to use sugar, Giada warned that you should use a very small amount, “maybe a half a teaspoon because it gets sweet very fast.”


The beginning of spring can feel like a transitional month where you don’t know if you should be making soup or salads – but now that spring is in full swing, we’re taking advantage of the bounty with Giada’s spring recipes!

What does spring mean to you? To us it’s bright snappy peas, juicy red strawberries, and all the asparagus. Super-sweet tomatoes even start cropping up as early as May! All-in-all, it feels like the first time after the cold months to celebrate all of the bountiful produce the season has to offer.

From breakfast bites to salads, pastas and mains, here are 8 standout dishes from Giada that have us going all heart-eyes over springtime. It’s time to head to the farmer’s market and embrace what the season has to offer with these spring recipes!

One of our favorite recipes from Giada’s Italy! To be honest, we’ll make this dish no matter the season, but the combination of peas and bright lemon make this a perfect recipe for springtime.

These muffins will make your house smell amazing as they bake. Ricotta gives them a very tender crumb, and the combination of almond and lemon make them taste like sunshine.

This pantry-pasta is so easy to whip up on a weeknight. The bountiful vegetables, fresh salmon and white wine all give this a bright flavor that’s just right for an easy spring dinner.

Spring pasta at its very finest! When fresh peas are available at the grocery store, use them for this. The best part? You can whip this one up in 15 minutes.

It’s a sad time when strawberries are out of season – so you bet that we celebrate when they come back around! Spring’s finest berries are showcased in this salad from the dressing to the whole berries tossed in.

Cherry tomatoes are already super sweet this time of year, and they’re perfect tossed into this simple healthier pasta dish. Don’t skip out on the lemon zest – it takes it to another level!

Winner winner! From the herb-crust on this chicken to the savory pan sauce, this is a chicken dinner you’re going to want to repeat all spring long.

This simple recipe is a perfect light lunch for springtime. We even love to eat the filling on its own, or over a bed of arugula!

Giada De Laurentiis’ Risotto Is The Easy Weeknight Meal You’ve Been Searching For

We’ll be honest, sometimes after a long busy day of work, all we want to do is sit back and relax for the rest of the night. Unfortunately, we have to eat somehow and if you have the lucky task of cooking for your kiddos you know that sooner or later you’re going to have to make your way to the kitchen and prepare a meal. On these days, we’re not necessarily looking for perfection or a 5-star gourmet meal &mdash and the quicker we can get in and out of the kitchen, the better. Looking for a new one-pot dish to add to your list of go-to recipes? Giada de Laurentiis has got you covered with her creamy Lemon Risotto with Shrimp.

“Don’t let risotto intimidate you – as a matter of fact, we consider it an easy (and so, so delicious) weeknight meal,” De Laurentiis’ @thegiadzy account wrote. Sure, making the perfect hearty dish of risotto might seem like a challenge, but with De Laurentiis’ tips, you’re sure to be a pro in no time.

Best of all, the chef’s recipe can be prepped and served in less than an hour, which is a huge plus for us. To give this recipe the flavorful kick it warrants, a couple of ingredients you’ll need are dry white wine, low-sodium chicken broth, and fresh lemon juice. And if you thought comfort food was strictly a wintertime concept, you’d be wrong because this risotto hits all the notes to leave you completely satisfied any time of the year.

Here's how to make your evaluation and treatment smoother

Few things are as scary as having to go to the emergency room. Perhaps, walking down the aisle (kidding!)? In truth, the E.R. is there to either save your life or to help you feel better. The important thing is that you utilize emergency services when you need to, and not allow fear of having a bad experience dissuade you from going. Interesting fact: according to the most updated CDC website, in 2016, the mean wait time to see a medical provider was 24 minutes in less busy emergency rooms and 48 minutes in the busier ones. Expectedly, people with more concerning symptoms such as chest pain are seen quicker than those with the complaint of a stubbed toe (I really did think I had broken it).

For those of you who are off to the emergency room, here are some (hopefully) helpful tips for making your evaluation and treatment smoother. Of course, depending on your symptoms and on whether you are being brought to the emergency room by an ambulance, you may not have the time or capacity to follow these tips (it's difficult to pack an overnight bag when you are unconscious).

Bring Another Set of Eyes and Ears

Whether it be a friend, family member or a work colleague. Having someone there to help advocate for you (asking the charge nurse why you haven't been seen in six hours) and to also listen to what the nurses and doctors tell you is extremely helpful. Additionally, s/he can act as a liaison and keep your other friends and family members informed of how you are doing.

Be Prepared

This step can be done months earlier in anticipation. You should keep an updated list of your current medications along with dosages (including vitamins and herbal supplements) as well as a record of your medication allergies. A great place to store this information is under notes if you use a smartphone. Otherwise, the old-fashioned method of keeping these details on a piece of paper tucked away in your wallet will also suffice. Other particulars you should keep handy are your insurance information, your doctor's name and phone number, a brief summary of your medical history, such as previous diagnoses such as asthma or kidney problems, and a list of your prior surgeries. For those of you with a history of heart disease or who are presenting to the emergency room with chest pain, shortness of breath or dizziness, having a copy of your most recent electrocardiogram (EKG), which is an image of your heart's electrical activity and can signify signs of heart disease, can be extremely helpful. In fact, you should consider keeping a copy of your most recent EKG under pictures if you use a smartphone, or in your wallet, if you are a technophobe.

Try to Be as Nice and Understanding as You Can Be

Clearly, you are likely very nervous and not yourself, as being in pain and not feeling well can bring out the worst in us. However, it is important to remember that the professionals in the emergency room are likely working their hardest and have the best of intentions, and you are likely not their only patient. Try to envision how you would respond if you had to deal with your worst self (frankly, I would probably call security and have myself thrown out).


Giada De Laurentiis Shares a Neapolitan Dessert Recipe From Her Childhood

Many of us have that one food &mdash you know, the one where you take a bite and it instantly brings back cherished memories from childhood? Well, chef extraordinaire Giada De Laurentiis is no different, and luckily for us, she’s decided to share a special holiday recipe from her childhood. On her Instagram, the Italian chef shared a beautiful video of herself preparing a Neopolitan dessert called Struffoli, and it looks splendid. Not only are we assuming that it tastes delicious, but the assembled result looks so lovely and is the perfect dinner table centerpiece.

“It’s STRUFFOLI SEASON! ❄️ ✨ 🎄,” began the caption on her Giadzy account’s Instagram. “This classic Neapolitan dessert is one that @Giadadelaurentiis remembers fondly from childhood. There are similar versions of this dessert from different countries and cultures, too – if you know it as something different, let us know in the comments!”

De Laurentiis previously told SheKnows that Struffoli was her favorite “unusual” dish to make during the holiday season, explain to us the magic of the “fried little dough balls tossed in honey, and made into a tower so it can be your centerpiece and your dessert.”

The popular Italian dessert has a prep time of an hour and a half, but it can be made a day in advance if you’re anticipating a busy day of cooking.

Our favorite thing about the recipe is the memories it holds for so many families. In the comments, people recalled their own experience with struffoli. One user wrote, “Oh my goodness I have not had this in years! My nonna used to make it every Christmas so Mom never did because Nonna&rsquos was the best. I have to try this now 🤤❤️”

Another heartfelt comment read, “It brings back wonderful memories of my Neapolitan grandmother. I try to carry on most of her food traditions, and it’s fun to be inspired by your recipes too.” We love to see food bring people together, and clearly, this is a recipe that does just that.
