If you are looking for easy to cook and yummy beyond yummy Italian recipes, this is your best bet. Shannon Smurthwaite manages to take her family recipes from a taste of this, pinch of that and actually get them written down in a format that us rulesy cooks (read – must have exact measurements) can follow and duplicate.
I personally like recipes that have not too crazy ingredients. I am kind of a picky eater, and there are so many recipes in here that I cannot wait to try. The pictures are so pretty, I drool just looking at the photos. If you like Italian food, this book has you covered from appetizers, soups, breads, main dishes, and desserts. And you can add to your taste if you like to cook that way too.
So, tell me the truth. Are you a strict recipe follower? Or can you wing it, and trust it will turn out ok?
