For Giada De Laurentiis, cooking and hosting go hand in hand. An active mom, hostess, and Food Network star, De Laurentiis knows a thing or two about pulling together the complicated worlds of parenting, playing, and working. To help you get a grip on all of the "worlds" around you, she recently released "Giada: A Digital Weekly," a new app for iPhone, loaded with her tips, tricks, and, of course, recipes.
In fact, the app contains a "Recipe Box" function, and recipes are shareable across users' social networks (like on Facebook and Pinterest). Readers also can receive step-by-step cooking instructions in the "Cook Mode" feature and "favorite" recipes they want to revisit at a later time. Every Thursday, a new issue will be released for readers to have as an entertaining touchstone.
