It's NO Secret I LOVE my jersey girls! (Housewives, Snooki & Jwow - LOVE). SO when Teresa's cookbook came out last year I HAD to have...this is how well my daughter knows me - she got me the cookbook for my birthday!! I display it proudly on my kitchen counter HOWEVER up until a few weeks ago I realized I have yet to make anything from it. So one Sunday night I grabbed the book and some leopard tabs (ya know to mark off the recipes I wanted to try).
What I LOVED About the book is it isn't JUST recipes - it's so much more...I KNOW she got a lot of kickback about the comments on fellow cast mates from the RHONJ BUT lets be real, when you are with a group of STRONG personality women it isn't always rainbows and moonbeams so I don't fault her. As I read thru I realized the prepared conveince foods we buy aren't that good for us.
I made my list, checked it twice and headed off to the grocery store...there's a lot of cutting involved....(in addition to what you see below I also chopped fresh tomatoes, zuccini)
VIOLA! Here was the finished product (I added a handful of organic spinach to my bowl) and served with fresh grated parmesan cheese - olive oil and bread....as any honorable fauxtalian would do!
Weigh in....YAY or NAY to Teresa? Fan or not?!?!
