I confess. I am a cookbook fanatic. At the library where I work, I keep an eye peeled for interesting cookbooks. If the recipes are too complex or they call for lots of rare ingredients, I return it to the shelf. I'm a lazy cook. I want spectacular results from simple effort.

This cookbook has the wrong title and terrible cover art. One of our librarians included it in a display of books that weren't circulating. If I had any pull with the publisher, I would re-release it with a different title a

Despite all my family's troubles, we would sit down for dinner every night. Food replaced words. "Are you still hungry? Do you want some more?" translated to "I love you."

- Side dish
- Dessert

This is a cookbook for someone who already has some experience in the kitchen. While some of the dishes are startlingly simple, others look quite tricky (let's just say that I've struggled with getting the consistency right for homemade g

This is a nice book to look through. The pictures are great and the menus sound delicious. I like the concept of the Sunday dinner menu and involving the whole family in preparation. Some recipes are fairly simple, but a lot of it is beyond my skill level as a cook. It will definitely make you wish you were Italian.

Cute concept - 52 menus for 52 Sundays out of the year. I have a bit of an attitude about Italian food - but these recipes are great for a crowd.

Nice pictures (not enough) and recipes, but nothing struck my fancy.
