Kathy Wakile and Teresa Giudice on Real Housewives of New Jersey

Caroline Manzo has had her opinions of Teresa Giudice, but when it comes to cooking, she's playing it safe. 

The Star-Ledger asked the drama-hating Real Housewives of New Jersey star who's got the better culinary chops: Teresa or her cousin Kathy Wakile? While Teresa packs a New York Times' Best Selling cookbook or two, Kathy's desserts leave viewers drooling for more.

Caroline was quite diplomatic with her opinion.  "You know what? I'm gonna get beat up for this," the proud mama treads lightly. "Kathy is a very good cook. I'm not saying she's the better cook. She's a very good cook. She's passionate about it. When there's passion, you can see it."

Meanwhile, Kathy's hoping to find the recipe for some peace for Teresa and the rest of her family -- especially Joe Gorga. "For me, I want to reconcile a brother and a sister. I see the hurt on both sides. I'm a family member and I want to see them united," she confides to Zap2it. "At the same time, it's so hard knowing the right thing to say and how to say it. Teresa was like my little sister. I miss that little sister/cousin relationship that we had."
