we called it macaroni

I enjoyed this book immensly. Living in Rhode Island I not only found the recipies easy and authentic,but I also found a great deal of local history in the book.I would highly recomend this to any one interested.

Molto Bene! Beautiful stories and delicious recipes!

Having grown up in an Italian house, I can truly relate to the many stories about italian heritage and customs. This book clearly gives heart warming memories and one delicous recipe after another. The title of the book alone made me smile as we enjoy "macaroni and gravy" every Sunday, too. Even if you're not Italian you will enjoy the stories and easy to follow recipes. Mangia!!!

Real cooking reflective of Rhode Island Italian heritage

The food and stories are wonderful and are authentic Rhode Island. The recipes are not complicated and are expressions of love and family through cooking.

Cooking will wait until after you read the entire book!

This cookbook is the Bible in my kitchen!! Such wonderful stories and anecdotes with the recipes that you'll find yourself just reading and reading and smiling! Being of Italian heritage, Ms. Barr's cookbook brought back so many wonderful memories for me. Memories built around my mother's kitchen and the wisdom and love that were always a part of her cooking. And yes, WE called it Macaroni! Thank you, Ms. Barr for a delightful read.

A cookbook you can actually READ cover to cover!

A must read for anyone interested in Authentic Italian recipies. Nancy Verde has created an excellent collection of recipies and the history behind why these dishes & customs became popular. An important book for Italian americans wishing to explore thier roots. It reads like a novel!
