I just moved into my first apartment and have to cook for myself for the first time. My friend gave me this book as a move-in present and I cooked the Penne with Broccoli and the Turkey Meatballs because they looked easy. They were fantastic! There are some hard recipes for someone who knows how to cook and wants to impress their guests. The pictures are cute and I found the book really fun because when I was living in the dorms, I ate the stuff out of the Chef Boyardee cans. I recommed it for anybody who doesn't think they know how to cook, but needs to.

A friend gave me this new cookbook and I love it. It's a great read and a great feed. It tells (and shows) the fascinating story of the Boiardi family and the Chef Boyardee Company, bringing the story to life through the voice of Anna. Her goal is to honor, capture, and carry forward the rich family tradition to which she was born. She "gets" that this will happen only if she can offer her readers (and her own children) the "tradition with a twist," a twist that takes account of the time pressures and distractions with which we all deal but that also recognizes our desire to provide mouth-watering and wholesome meals for our families and friends. So where her grandfather and great uncles pioneered in addressing the convenience issue with canned and boxed meals, Anna addresses it with clever strategies to simplify the preparation of delicious home-cooked dishes. In addition, for those occasions when there is time to make some of the classics (hand made tortelli, gnocchi, and noodles with a pasta machine, for example), this book provides clear instructions illustrated with lovely photographs (many with Anna and her mother working side-by-side). I was pleasantly surprised that the vegetable section of this book is especially appealing. I see a number of dishes there that I plan to prepare as full meals in themselves. There's lots to learn here and lots to cook and enjoy. A delicious book of delicious memories and possibilities.

I picked up this book because it's so beautiful and all I've tried so far is the lasagna. I was inspired to do a review right away. The lasagna is fantastic--the best I've ever tasted and I consider myself something of a lasagna expert, so much so that a group of my graduate students challenged me to a lasagna bake-off contest. I came in second. Now that I have this recipe, I'll win next time. You need this book.

Next up: The "Leavnig Home Penne Rigate with Broccoli," check out the picture on page 75.

I just made the Penne Rigate from this book; Delicious Memories- It was totally Amazing! Last minute my boyfriend said his parents were coming by for dinner and I immediately grabbed this cookbook and began looking for something to cook for dinner. This grabbed my eye, and them being Italian I thought this was perfect! It is so easy to make, only a few steps and it was ready in under 30 minutes . It was soooo good. Everyone loved it and even asked me for the recipe! Perfect for a quick meal thats delicious. Everyone had seconds and then wanted to take the leftovers home to eat for lunch tomorrow!This is a must do recipe! Perfect for a dinner party- very few ingredients keeps the cost down and it can be made for as little as 2 people or as many as 20!I just bought 2 more books because his mom loved it so much she wants a book of her own!Great Book! Faboulous recipes! Everything is so clearly defined.. ingredients.. steps.. tools needed.. The Recipes range from beginner to more experienced cooks. This book has something for everyone. I highly reccomend it!

Recently I ordered Anna Boiardi's low pressure cooker after seeing her on a TV program. I looked her up on Amazon and found her delightful cookbook at a reduced price of $11.88. This is a hardback book that contains lots of family history of the Boiardi (Chef Boyardee) family. There are lots of color photographs of the Boyardee advertising of years past as well as family photos. Also, many of the recipes include color photos as well. Anna has a short story concerning each recipe which usually goes back to a family story. I found the recipes to be very easy and not requiring a special trip to the grocery store to find the items. I highly recommend this cookbook for those looking to learn more about the Chef Boyardee name and family and for those looking for simple yet delicious Italian recipes.

Fabulous book, filled with great recipes, family memories & photos as well as history. A story of immigrants to the USA who truly brought their talents and helped make our country what it is today. The author is a kind and generous lady. I'm thankful to her for sharing her family story with us.

Good book about an American icon (Chef Boy-ar-dee) and a good cookbook with updates on her grandfather's recipes. Anna Boiardi is a very special person. You can hear on a radio interview that's posted on PBS online. She conducts a cooking school for which she has never charged anybody for attending and is always willing to help you. Great people... it seems this is what the great chef was like as well.
