ENTER TO WIN: ‘Skinny Italian’ Cookbook By Teresa Guidice (5 WINNERS)


New Jersey housewife and first generation Italian Teresa Guidice recently published her own cookbook featuring the authentic family recipes she grew up on and owes her figure to. With splashes of her personality and tons of healthy cooking tips filling the pages, Skinny Italian is more than just your average cookbook, it’s an “eat it and enjoy it” book.

Below is a statement from the Skinny Italian herself on why she wanted to share her family recipes with the world.

“Family tradition is very important to me. A lot of our family time, our culture, and our love revolves around being in the kitchen. I learned to cook from my mom, and I cook homemade meals for my family almost every night. I’ve been collecting my mom’s recipes, tips, tricks and secrets from the Old World for healthy Italian living for years. I finally wrote them down to pass on to my kids, and the result is Skinny Italian. It’s a love letter to my mom. It’s full of full-color photographs, over 60 family recipes straight from Salerno, and of course, a bit of behind-the-scenes gossip thrown in.” –Teresa Guidice
