Research finds that people that eat home cooked meals on a regular basis tend to be happier, healthier and  even live longer lives!


Don’t Cut The Basil is filled with over 25 authentic Italian recipes a perfect book for anyone wanting to make delicious Italian food without leaving your home. 


The authors, three Sicilian cousins Corrina, Angela and Mary are excited to share their family recipes with your family! Their grandmothers and mothers taught them The Italian way, to cook without measuring but using their senses to know when the food was ready. Always by look, smell and taste. 


These recipes include multiple generations of Italian family traditions. They are simple and authentic, and some have been Americanized over time due to the availability of ingredients and resources. Some recipes have evolved with each families’ taste; therefore, they include varying versions for you to enjoy.


During our digital launch weekend on Amazon, our cookbook Don't Cut the Basil: Five Generations of Authentic Italian Recipes went #1 Best Seller in four countries (the United States, Italy, Canada, and the United Kingdom) for a total of 34 Best Seller categories and earned twelve #1 placements!
