The Real Housewives of New Jersey are a feisty bunch of
women. From explosive dinner parties to scandalous affairs
revealed from secret pasts, these ladies sure know how to
make a scene. Teresa Giudice is in the spotlight again, but

Not only does she share some of her family's most treasured
recipes, but also she offers up some helpful tips and sage
advice on how to stay in shape while living a fulfilling
life. The mother of four beautiful young girls, Teresa puts
emphasis on providing a loving home filled with good food
and healthy meal choices. Even her hunky husband Joe chimes
in by sharing his two cents on the art of Italian cooking.
With over sixty recipes such as Tempting Tomato and Oregano

stay away from food that also is a stripper's name (i.e.
cookies, candy, and cupcakes) brings out her quirky sense
of humor that we all have come to love.
