On tour for my new cookbook, we spend a lot of time in cars and planes, so I grab the laughs, treats, and naps wherever I can get them!

Joe on the go! I always hunt out the best coffee shop in whatever town I wake up in to sample their morning fare. I like to consider myself a coffee aficionado. This a.m.? Americano black with agave please, and your finest blueberry muffin!

I FaceTime every day, often multiple times, with my little fam. It really helps us to have that eye-to-eye contact—that is really important! My iPhone is my lifeline when I’m away from home, and have really been enjoying working on articles and ideas for my new app for iPhone, Giada: A Digital Weekly, available on iTunes.

I try to eat lightly and often when on the road to keep my energy up and my system not overworked. A nice chicken paillard or a juice are a few of my faves! My favorite combo for juices are kale, spinach, a little apple, lemon, ginger and cayenne.

Fries are some of my fave comfort foods. I love the crispy indulgence, but I make sure they aren't a daily habit!

Here I am signing a poster at Williams-Sonoma. We always sign our posters for staff after a book signing. I love seeing who has visited each location!

My hands are a big part of my job and I like to give them extra attention. They can get banged up with all the cooking, but it's nothing a great manicurist can't handle. These are painted by one of my faves, NYC-based Patricia Yankee and I'm loving the gold grill! I like a couple coats of Patricia's own colors, Halo with a coat of Faith for some sparkle on the top.
