My Christmas gift from my sister's fiance's parents. I had such a good laugh after opening my present. Haha! Still, it was a treasure, that's for sure and a great gift. Also a big hint for me to start cooking again.
I love the book. Even though I've never watch the series before, the characters all come alive in this book. The Sopranos, their favourite chef (!!!), and other characters whom I have no idea about. There's even a page of online chatting between Meadow Soprano and a friend, complaining about her mother's rich Italian cooking.
Bella (Meadow) : U know how many fat cals in olive oil?
Holly : thought it was good for cancer
Bella : its all fat cals!!!!!! Holly : wow Bella : 3 pieces of bread soaked in olive oil is like eating 3 pieces of cheesecake!

Recipes seem simple enough. Gulp! Well, I should hope it was THAT simple. From starters and appetizers, to soups and entrees and finally to delicious and sweetness tempting desserts. And, my favourite dessert is there : TIRAMISU.
Only thing left to do now is to convince Granny that we should do Italian once a week at home!
