5.0 out of 5 stars Top Ten Reasons To Buy This Book, September 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Now Eat This! Italian: Favorite Dishes from the Real Mamas of Italy--All Under 350 Calories (Hardcover)
1. It is not a typical "diet" book. It has recipes that are healthy, tasty, and made with real food, not processed ingredients.

2. It does not require you to hunt down wacky ingredients. Everything can be found in most any grocery store.

3. DESSERT! Actual desserts that are healthy but you will actually want to eat them!

4. Plenty of vegetarian options.

5. It weighs half as much as Paula Deen's cook book. ;)

6. Even picky kids will like most all the recipes. A few are spicy, but are easily modified.

7. The photographs are stunning. I believe this is sometimes referred to as "food porn", but I'm not that kind of girl, so I wouldn't know. I've just heard...

8. Did I mention the DESSERTS?!?! Seriously. A healthy cookbook with desserts in it. And they are awesome.

9. There are lots of pictures of Rocco in it. Please see #7. Again, I'm not that kind of girl. Just letting you know....

10. I own every book Rocco has done, and all of the recipes turn out right, every time, and this book is no different.
