All of my books are fun actually. When I first did Skinny Italian I wanted to make sure it was more than just recipes, that it was full of stories and food facts and history too. My favorite thing is when people come up to me and tell me they read my books cover to cover. I tell about how Joe and I met (when I was a baby!), how we've stayed married 13 years (lots of sex, lots of good homemade food!), how I learned to cook, my kitchen explosions, how I got my name, which pasta was known for strangling priests, how my parents and in-laws met in Italy. I tell you which foods you can (and can't!) use in the bathtub, which food will put you in the mood (watermelon is like the Viagra of fruit! I give a recipe for Watermelon Granita in Fabulicious: On the Grill. You're welcome.), and Joe chimes in with his own "Juciy Bits from Joe" about making wine and what "Manzo" really means.
I know most of you know this already, but it sounds like some of my own family members haven't read my books, so here's a quick summary:
Skinny Italian (http://amzn.to/155wZDJ) is all about the cornerstones of healthy, authentic, Italian cuisine. I teach you how to make six different tomato sauces from scratch, how to choose and use the right olive oil, and how to love food, love eating, and still love your body afterward. It includes full nutritional information for each recipe.
Fabulicious: Teresa's Italian Family Cookbook (http://amzn.to/11udlV3) is all about preparing, serving, and eating meals with the ones you love. My girls even take over the book and write one of the chapters!
