Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit: Teresa's Low-Fat, Super-Easy Italian Recipes

Teresa Giudice, with Heather MacLean. Running, $18.95 trade paper (192p) ISBN 978-0-7624-4544-8
Giudice's peppy personality comes through as she celebrates her Italian heritage with a wealth of easy recipes. Beginning with a "Kitchen Catechism" that focuses on all dishes being prepped in under 30 minutes and with less than 10 ingredients, Giudice assures readers, "I'm never going to be the girl to give you recipes for tofu and soy milk meatballs. Non mi va; that's just not me." Nevertheless, Giudice is focused on staying fit and fed. Common sense advice (e.g., colorful food is good for you; extra virgin olive oil is the oil of choice) is juxtaposed with asides on Italian pronunciation, insider info on rosemary and Balsamic vinegar, and a rundown of nutritional stats for all the recipes. Included here are comfort food staples, such as a calamari and potato cacciuco, as well as low-fat classics ("Skinny Spaghetti Bolognese"), "romantic" recipes ("Sexy Chickpea Chard Stew"), and "Guilt-Free Desserts" (including a berry-ricotta tiramisu). Complete with a "Motivating Music" playlist and tips for storing fresh herbs, Giudice provides plenty of inspiration and information to pursue her favorite F-words: great food, staying fit, and—of course—being fabulous.
