Giveaway: Ciao Italia Family Classics
It's a tradition that my mom gives each of us a cookbook for Christmas every year, so I've always had a lot of cookbooks around. I find inspiration and sources for current recipes in all of them. The transition to eating along paleo lines hasn't changed that - I think cookbooks with only paleo recipes are great if you're just getting into the lifestyle, but I am not going to stop being a cookbook junkie.
Ciao Italia: Family Classics is the most recent acquisition. A (primal & gluten-free) Supreme Lasagna recipe won me a copy in a PBS Food contest, but due to a mix-up I was sent two copies. They were nice enough to let me share the extra copy with you!
Congrats to entrant 38, Carolyn! She said: "The "Fried Ricotta Cheese - serve on red pepper wedges instead of bread" caught my eye right away. Sounds interested! And yummy!!"
