This cookbook is the Bible in my kitchen!! Such wonderful stories and anecdotes with the recipes that you'll find yourself just reading and reading and smiling! Being of Italian heritage, Ms. Barr's cookbook brought back so many wonderful memories for me. Memories built around my mother's kitchen and the wisdom and love that were always a part of her cooking. And yes, WE called it Macaroni! Thank you, Ms. Barr for a delightful read.

Having grown up in an Italian house, I can truly relate to the many stories about italian heritage and customs. This book clearly gives heart warming memories and one delicous recipe after another. The title of the book alone made me smile as we enjoy "macaroni and gravy" every Sunday, too. Even if you're not Italian you will enjoy the stories and easy to follow recipes. Mangia!!!

I purchased this book after seeing a friend's copy. What I love about it, is that the dishes are authentic, easy to prepare and served up with a family story. This makes it more than a cookbook, it is a legacy to the author and a tribute to the family. Get together with your family, and prepare one of the tasty dishes TOGETHER!
