This is a quality publication anyone would enjoy having! The is no ordinary cookbook. It is filled with advise on everything you will ever need to know about pasta, kitchen hints, family dining, and much more!
The beautifully illustrated pages show step by step directions as well as the finished, appetizing product. The majority of the recipes are Italian & Latin based. However, there are a few "All-American" ones, as well.
Among my very favorites are: Easy Homemade Basil Pesto; Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas; Mini Wonton Tacos; and simple and delicious Southern-Style Baked Beans. They all look nd sound wonderful!
At the end of the Book are three pages of an, easy to navigate, Index.
This would, also, make a wonderful gift!
I was gifted this book but in no way asked to offer a positive review. This is my honest review.
I give this book a solid Five Stars rating

I absolutely LOVE to review cookbooks! I love to get new cookbooks and look through them. They all seem to have at least a bit of the personality of their author within their pages and recipes. That's always fun to look for. And there really isn't much better than looking at all of the glossy beautiful pictures of the food that you can make with these recipes.
I really enjoyed this one. I loved the way there are step by step instructions for making things like homemade pasta. Wow, I've never had any idea how to make that before and there are even pictures of how to make it. I never had any idea of just how involved it was to make pasta. I really enjoyed this cookbook, there are quite a few Italian food recipes and I can't wait to try them. Things like homemade Marinara, we love Marinara at our house and it will be fun to try to make it myself and see if we like it as well as what I usually buy at the store.
There are also recipes for all kinds of sandwiches, which is another thing I like to play with. And desserts, both Latin themed and Italian themed.
I liked the way that the recipes are simple recipes that families will enjoy both eating and making together. I liked the way the theme throughout the whole book is how to get your family together for dinner. There are different sections throughout the book with tips on how to get the most out of your family mealtime and why mealtime is important.
This is a really fun cookbook! I can't wait to cook my way through it.

I love looking through new cookbooks. This one was especially fantastic because every single recipe has a full page picture to go with it. I'm a visual girl so I love being able to see what the recipe is describing. The pictures in this book made me want to start cooking and that's something because if I'm being completely honest, I hate cooking. It's a chore for me, not a pleasure. So, yay! for this recipe book for inspiring me to cook! My family will be so happy. :)
My first recipe will be the marina sauce. (I just got this book a couple days ago and haven't had a chance to try out any recipes yet) This recipe looks so easy and sounds delish! I love the tips included that suggest doubling the recipe and then freezing some for quick use with another meal. Now that's my kind of cooking!
There are several recipes that include this marina sauce, like the Classic Chicken Parmesan that I will be trying out as well. I'm also going to try the Cilantro Lime Rice and the Mini Wanton Tacos. Yum!
This book includes definitions, tips for cooking, and some recipes even have step by step instructions with pictures. That's handy for a girl like me! Oh and there are little quotes sprinkled throughout as well. I loved those! Here's one:
