    The book should be called "Uninspirational!" Basic Italian fare, with an emphasis on past cooking styles; i.e. "dated." I thought I would enter her receipe for Tomato Sauce, because it actually made me laugh with a "You've GOT to be kidding," moment: 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 28-ounce can imported whole plum tomatoes, broken up with their juices 1/4 cup tomato paste 2 tablespoons chopped basil. That's it! D'oh! She swears using extra-virgin olive oil in EVERYTHING, and if you are in the The book should be called "Uninspirational!"

That's it! D'oh! She swears using extra-virgin olive oil in EVERYTHING, and if you are in the know, you don't use that type of olive oil except for salads and more light fare. So you puree some tomatoes and chop some bail. Voila. Genius. You can learn more about making sauce from watching "The Godfather." All of the receipes follow off of this basic sauce. Hunks of meat and sauce. By the time you're done reading this book, you realize one of her meals could be tied to a corpse and dumped off of Newark never to be seen again. Who needs concrete blocks? I'd type out the recipe for "Joe's Juicy Meatballs," but my God. The thought.

    Teresa Giudice is just as funny and sassy in written form as she is in motion. With her "don't give a fuck" and "go get 'em" attitudes, not only does she share fun and easy to accomplish recipes with you, she shares a positive look on life as well. That food is not something to be feared or over-complicated or over thought. Food is something to tackle and celebrate. Food is life. Food is happiness. Food is to be shared with yourself and everyone you love. Teresa Giudice is just as funny and sassy in written form as she is in motion.

    I really likes all the recipes I tried. This book convinced me to make my own pasta for the first time! It was so easy and not as time consuming as I thought. Thank you Teresa for helping me see that I can make great things from scratch that don't take all day! Now I always make my own pizza dough and my own sauce using your recipes!

    I purchased this book on 8/8/11 when I went to Teresa's book signing at Barnes & Nobles in Hamilton NJ. She as very nice and sweet. She wrote "Cheri, Happy Birthday Love Teresa Guidice" in book and had the opportunity to shake her hand and take a picture with her. While waiting in line to meet her, I did skim over the pages.... there are some really delcious looking recipes in there. Can't wait to try them out.

    This is another of Teresa Giudice's great nuts-and-bolts guide to everyday Italian cooking. She and her co-author, Heather McClean's writing style is easy, and offers useful information. Like Skinny Italian, this little book is entertaining and informative. What's not to like? This is another of Teresa Giudice's great nuts-and-bolts guide to everyday Italian cooking.

    I only read this to see all the digs she made about the other Housewives as mentioned on the show. I did save a few recipes and am excited to try them. (And yes, she meant the digs as actually portrayed on the show).

    I've cooked about five recipes out of Teresa's cook book and loved them all! Her recipes are truly a good home cooked meal and fast and simple! Everything requires fresh ingredients and all are very easy to find at your local supermarket. Love this cook book! I've cooked about five recipes out of Teresa's cook book and loved them all!

    I think this is a great and easy cookbook. Considering I'm not Italian whatsoever, it's easy for me to follow along. I think this is a great and easy cookbook. Considering I'm not Italian whatsoever, it's easy for me to follow along.

    Nice cookbook, but i liked her first book better. These recipes seem a bit too complicated/pricey to make.

    a small inspiration for cooking with your kids, but otherwise easy to pass over.

    This seemed more like an opportunity for the author to make the readers feel stupid for ever enjoying “American-Italian” food. Plus, I find it very unbelievable that Teresa and Joe can combine their thoughts for one coherent sentence.

    I thought it was cute, Recipes are sort of basic but worth reading if you know the uproar it caused on the show.

    All the recipes I have tried came out delicious! Not a lot of ingredients and simple ones in all the recipes.
