My Thoughts

Growin up, I’ve had the good fortune of eating some really good homecooked Italian food. So good, I tried convincing my friend’s nonna to adopt me. It’s so hard to find good authentic Italian cuisine, and of course, whenever you try replicating nonna’s recipe it never quite tastes the same. So when I stumbled across this book back when it was published (in 2006), and saw a recipe on how to make Italian ice cream (Gelato) and Tiramisu, I had to have it.

I’m almost ashamed to say it, but despite having this book for many years I’ve only attempted some of the recipes recently! I’m a big pasta lover, so my hubby decided to surprise me and the kids by making gnocchi. Not only was it…

I’d like to thank Netgalley & BenBella Books. I received a copy of this cookbook in exchange for an honest review.

I’m not perfect-not at eating healthy or anything else!

Since I live a soy free, nut free and gluten free life, it can sometimes be a challenge to prep meals or find recipes that can accommodate our food restrictions/allergies.

As soon as I saw this book, I was intrigued and knew I wanted to get my hands on it.

To be honest, I usually skim through the introduction. Sometimes I don’t even bother reading it and jump right into the recipes. However, this was one of the few cookbooks where I actually took an interest to the author and read the intro. I love that Diana is an everyday mom like myself. She’s not a health freak, doctor or someone with a list of nutrition degrees…
