The bucatini turned out so great. The chicken, lemon and white wine taste yummy and the basil and parsley gave great flavor.
The chicken with bell peppers and onions is so so. I normally adore balsamic vinegar but it gave the stew a sour taste.
The party cookies with sprinkles turned out quite pretty. My husband recommended I make a batch for his Sicilian mom who is an italian dessert snob...high praise indeed.
I like the recipes but am not too fond of the endless amount of silly commentary.
The author really dialed down the tacky sexual innuendo and personal attacks on others that wasted so much space in her first book. This made a refreshing change for the better. It's easy to focus on the cooking part of this excellent little cookbook. She left out the nutrition profiles which were a VERY nice feature in her first book and I notice she brought them back for book # 3. I notice they are missing in book #4 the grill book, but they are probably extra work and expense for the publisher to include so this isn't a criticism directed at the author, but more towards the publisher, since that is a valuable feature. I'm still working my way thru books 3 and 4 so I'm not recommending them yet but I'm ready to state that this book and the first one are really worth getting.
What I love about this book is the recipes!!!!! She continues to provide recipes that are high in flavour and very easy to complete. No intimidation for beginner cooks or people in a hurry. Simple, tasty and reliable. That isn't always the case with chefs turned recipe writers.Read more ›
I grew up in New York, eating authentic Italian food several times a week. This food is nothing like what you would be served in a New York Italian restaurant and my Italian friends would never serve the recipes in this book. There is no complexity in the food. I know that rustic Italian cooking relies on simple preparations of good quality ingredients, but these recipes do not seem authentic at all. The recipes that do look like real Italian dishes are recipes you can get anywhere.....Pizza Dough, Pasta Dough, Lasagna, etc. Believe me, if you compare Giada's Lasagna recipe to the one in this book, you will see what I mean. Giada's is decadent and sublime. I made Theresa's version, and it reminded me of a frozen Stouffers Lasagna. No one in my house would eat it. There is a recipe in this book called "Cavatelli with Ricotta and Red Sauce". There are three ingredients....Cavatelli, ricotta cheese and red sauce! C'mon on.....with recipes like this, my 7 year old niece could have written this cookbook!
Don't waste your time or money. If you want a great italian cookbook, check out books by Giada DeLaurentis, Marcella Hazan, Mario Batali and Lidia Bastianich. They are the real deal! I question the book editor that allowed this book to go forward.
