This cookbook has such an amazing array of recipes! The recipes are detailed, easy to follow and appeal to many different tastes. The photographs are well done and look fantastic, they make you want to jump up and cook them immediately.

One of my favorite recipes out of this book was Pasta and Lentils, Sicilian Style. I followed the recipe to a T, and it came out perfect and was a huge hit! I even got my picky nieces and nephews to try it out. I can't wait to try more out of here!

I loved the simplicity of the layout and how the whole book was organized! It is a fantastic cookbook! Once you try these recipes out, you are going to want to pass them around!
